Bellande Crippled, Busted

Jean-Robert Bellande

We just saw a huge pot between Greg Raymer, Jean-Robert Bellande, and Nicholas Verkaik where a mistaken raise by Verkaik ended up taking down the pot. Only a few hands later after being crippled, Bellande was busted and has fallen short of the money in yet another tournament.

Pre-draw, Raymer raised, the Verkaik on the button called, Bellande re-raised, Raymer called, and then Verkaik started cutting out his chips and trying to figure out a call amount but put enough in for a raise. The floor was called over and it was ruled a raise. Bellande decided to raise one last time and he capped it with both players calling.

Raymer and Verkaik each drew two while Bellande chose to draw one. Bellande led out with a bet and both players called. Bellande and Verkaik each drew one on the second round while Raymer drew two. Bellande bet, Raymer called, Verkaik raised, and both Bellande and Raymer called.

One the third draw, Bellande and Raymer each drew one and Verkaik stood pat. All three players checked and Verkaik showed {8-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{2-} to take down the pot.

Raymer fell to 48,000 and Bellande fell to 11,000 after the hand.

While we missed the action, we do know that Bellande busted out only a few hands later. He said from his Twitter account, "Oooo 37k in the pot... Im all-in but My pat 8 is looking good. Only have to fade this last draw from Greg Raymer..." Clearly he didn't fade that last draw from Raymer and he has hit the rail.
