Event 53 - Final Table - It's Ovah! Bellande Loses!
Jean Robert Bellande had Matt Graham down to $300,000 at one point and it was time for tequila! Bellande ordered shots of Patron for all of his cronies on the rail. Some people believe in jinxes and others don't, but tonight might have made a believe out of Bellande after all.
After taking a much needed (for all parties involved) twenty minute break, the two returned to play with Graham sporting a nearly 2-1 chip advantage.Though it looked like this match might never end, it took just 10 minutes or so for this event to be in the books.
Jean Robert got off to a bad start after returning from break when he blew a large chunk of his stack on a jack high rainbow board. Graham turned up J-9 for top pair weak kicker but Bellande mucked!
A couple of minutes after that, Bellande got all in preflop and turned up 9-7 offsuit to Graham's A♦ J♦. The board helped neither player and all of a sudden it was all over!
According to the payscale, JRB received $173,564 for his second place finish while Matt Graham earned $278,180 for the win. That's not exactly what happened. For the real scoop, check out the interview!
