Manderlier Calls it Down

Level 8 : 300/600, 75 ante

Laurent Manderlier opened the action from middle position for what appeared to be 1,300. Another opponent immediately on his left three-bet to 3,500. Manderlier called.

The flop was {2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, and Manderlier check-called a bet of 3,200. The turn was the {k-Spades}, and both players checked. The river was the {6-Spades}, and Manderlier checked. The opponent in late position fired out a bet of 6,100. Manderlier tanked for a couple of minutes, eyeing up his opponent and getting his read. After taking his time to assess things, Manderlier smiled and called.

The opponent in late position tabled {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, and Manderlier quickly showed {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

The dealer then began to look for a winning hand. A bit exasperated after calling, Manderlier exclaimed, "Ace-high is good," pointing to his hand and joking, "Stop trying to find a hand that beats me."

His opponent then made a statement to the effect of, "I should have bet the turn."

Manderlier quickly let him know, "You lost less not betting the turn because I wasn't folding, and then you would have to bet even more on the river, and I still wasn't folding."

Manderlier is a Belgian player with many final table results in his native country. He has had a very fun and playful demeanor all day long and looks to continue to chip up as the action progresses throughout the evening.
