Juanda Playing Nice

[user38449]
In a hand with just one big blind (there was a dead small), the action folded around to John Juanda on the button.

As John reached for his chips, the woman in the big blind put out her hand and stopped him, saying "Wait, wait . . . sometimes I can predict the future," as she scrunched her face together as if she was thinking really hard.

After a few seconds, Juanda mucked his hand, saying, "OK, you're a nice lady."

Frankie O'Dell Busts Tony G

[user38449]
Tony G got all his money in before the flop holding {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{K-Spades} against Frankie O'Dell's {A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}.

The pot would've been split on the turn, as the board filled out {4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades} {6-Diamonds}, but the {10-Clubs} on the river gave Frankie a pair of 10's for the high, and an A-2-3-4-6 low, sending Tony G to the rail.

After the hand, Frankie had 26,000 chips.
