Gregorich Looking Good at Present, Chad's Future in Doubt

Mark Gregorich completed with the {7-Clubs} showing, and Yuval Bronshtein called with the {9-Hearts} up. The action on Norman Chad, he checked his cards and looked down for a moment at the {4-Clubs} he had up, then at the small stack of 85,000 he had remaining.

Chad then fished a fortune cookie from his pocket, unwrapped it, and while chewing read the rectangular slip of paper to himself. With a wrinkled brow, he shared it with the table.

"Within the week you will receive an unexpected gift," he said, a note of incredulity in his voice. "That's kind of vague," he complained. "Mmm... good cookie, though," he added as he folded.

Bronshtein then check-called bets from Gregorich on the next two streets before both players checked down sixth and seventh.

Gregorich: {x-}{x-} / {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} / {x-}
Bronshtein: {x-}{x-} / {9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{6-Spades} / {x-}
Chad: {x-}{x-} / {4-Clubs}, a crumpled piece of paper, and some crumbs

Gregorich tabled {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and his sevens were enough as Bronshtein mucked.
