Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

"You Bet 666 Into 666"


With about 120,000 in the pot and a flop of {6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{4-Hearts}, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier bet 66,000 from the big blind, Talal Shakerchi called from middle position, Noah Schwartz came along from the hijack, and Gus Hansen raised to 333,000 from the cutoff.

From there, Paul Newey folded the button, Grospellier and Shakerchi called, and Schwartz got out of the way, bringing about the {9-Clubs} turn. Both Grospellier and Shakerchi checked to Hansen, who thought for about a minute before doing the same.

When the {A-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, Grospellier led out for 666,000, Shakerchi called, and Hansen got out of the way. Grospellier proudly rolled over {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for a set, but it was no good against Shakerchi's {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds} set.

As Shakerchi was stacking the pot, Jason Mercier told Grospellier, "You bet 666 into 666."
