Belkacam Habassi was not happy at all after the hand was over and added some table chat. What had happened? On the three-way flop of AhQh6c, Habassi checked and Albert Balayn bet 1,600, which Desmond Culbert called, Habassi also came along.
On the Kd turn, Habassi and Balayn checked before Culbert made it 3,000 to go. Habassi folded while Balayn called. The 10h river saw Balayn check-call 6,000 with JcJs for the straight and Culbert only had KcQc for two pair. “Oh wow, what a call. He calls with jacks and I fold ace-jack of diamonds,” those were the words of Habassi, who dropped to around 22,000.
Culbert was cut down to 14,000 while Balayn boasts 37,000.
