Busquet Busts Smith Then Buys Him a Drink

YorkshirePud • Level 6: 100-200, 25 ante
Gavin Smith

Gavin Smith opened the betting with a raise to 450 from under the gun, a raise that folded out the active players one-by-one until the action was on Olivier Busquet on the button.

Busquet peeked at his cards then moved all-in for 3,150 in total. The blinds ducked out of the way, but Smith shrugged his shoulders and called.

Smith: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Busquet: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

Smith looked on course for a timely double-up, but the {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{8-Spades} flipped the hand on its head and put the ball firmly in Busquet's court. The {6-Diamonds} left Smith drawing dead and he was already out of his seat when the {3-Diamonds} completed the board.

As Smith left the table, the waiter arrived with a tray of drink. Smith darted back to his to collect his beverage, and Busquet gave the waiter a couple of dollars to pay for it.

"Well that was worth it," said Smith as he headed out of the tournament area sipping on his free cocktail.
