"Pretty Brutal, Man. I'm Not Gonna Lie"

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

Badugi

Jerry Wong raised to 120,000 under the gun and John Monnette defended from the big blind. Both players drew one and Monnette check-called a bet.

The action repeated itself on the second draw and then Monnette drew one for a final time. Wong stood pat and then bet when Monnette checked.

Monnette thought for a bit and then called.

"I got it," Wong said, which Monnette heard as,"You got it."

Before Monnette went to table his hand Wong showed the {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{a-Clubs}. Monnette then realized he misheard, showed the {a-Spades}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, and said, "Pretty brutal, man. I'm not gonna lie."

John Monnette raised under the gun and then called when the short-stacked Matthew Schreiber three-bet all in for 165,000 from the big blind.
