"How Long Have You Been Playing Poker?"

[user101598] • Level 6: 300-600, 0 ante
Jean-Robert Bellande isn't happy.

When we walked up to the table, the board read {a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}, and Allen Kessler and Jean-Robert Bellande were heads up. We're not certain exactly what the action was, but we know that Bellande was faced with a bet when he tossed enough chips in to make the call. There was a pause.

"Is that a raise?" Kessler questioned.

Bellande said nothing.

"Dealer," Andrew Brown piped up. "Is that a raise?"

"I don't know," he answered sheepishly.

Bellande stared into space silently. Eventually the dealer decided it was just a call, and dealt the river; the {k-Clubs}. Bellande checked, Kessler bet, and Bellande tank-folded. While Kessler was stacking his new chips, Bellande finally spoke.

"How long have you been playing poker, Allen?" he said bitterly. "That was clearly a call."

"I looked away," Kessler protested. "Thats why I asked."

The two continued to bicker, but it's Kessler who's a few thousand chips richer at the moment.
