Outwit, Outplay, Outlast... Bellande Survives

Nível 17 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante

The board showed {6-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Spades} and there was already more than 150,000 in the middle. Frank Cerminara checked, and after pausing for several moments Jean-Robert Bellande bet 84,000, almost half of his remaining stack. Cerminara considered the situation, then set out stacks of orange, thereby raising enough to put Bellande all in.

Bellande began to stack and restack his remaining chips as he thought what to do. He took a swig of water, and leaned back in his chair.

"It's a helluva play if you've bluffed me," he said. "It's a helluva play if you have it, too," he added.

Finally, a couple of minutes and several shrugs later, Bellande made the call, tabling {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for trip nines. Cerminara shook his head and complimented Bellande as he showed his {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}.

The former "Survivor" star jumps up to about 490,000 after making that correct decision, while Cerminara slips to around 400,000.
