A Humberto Hand to Chew On

Humberto? Gumberto!

Humberto Brenes was just now sharing sticks of gum with a couple of his table mates, including the player sitting to his right. With half the table smacking away, it folded around to the small blind who raised, and Brenes called the bet.

The flop came {3-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}, and when checked to Brenes bet, and his opponent called.

The turn was the {2-Clubs}. This time both players checked. And chewed.

The river was the {Q-Spades}. Brenes' opponent checked, and when Brenes bet his neighbor raised his eyebrows and blew a bubble. He thought a little longer, then with a pained look let his hand go.

Brenes showed the table one card — the {10-Hearts} — which didn't do much to dissolve the pained look on his opponent's face. Then, just as he'd shared his gum before, Humberto shared a peek at the other card to his neighbor alone, and his reaction suggested the second card took away any bitter taste the hand had caused.
