2013 World Series of Poker

Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Helppi Can't Even Get "One Card, Maybe?"


Juha Helppi check-called a bet of 3,000 on a board of {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. The river brought another nine, the {9-Clubs}. Helppi checked, and this time his opponent bet a whopping 20,000.

Helppi went into the tank, and after a couple of minutes, his opponent playfully slid two of the orange T5,000 chips back, leaving 10,000 out there.

"I would have actually called that, but this, I don't know," Helppi said with a laugh. "Will you show me if I fold? One card maybe?"

His opponent just smiled, and Helppi folded after about another minute or so.

Helppi will have to console himself with his well-above-average stack.
