Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Banana for the Win

poolshir • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Francois Evard raised to 2,200 from under the gun and Serif Gozegir called in the hijack. Alexander Neff looked at Gozegir to see how much the raise was.

"He raised!" Gozegir said to Neff while pointing at Evard, "me, banana".

Neff smiled, "Ok, I'm banana, I'm gonna call".

Florin Rusu also called in the big blind.

The flop came {8-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}, everyone checked to Gozegir who bet 3,000. Neff and Evard both made the call while Rusu gave up on the hand.

They all checked through the {4-Clubs} on the turn to the {a-Hearts} on the river. Neff now fired a bet of 12,000 over the line. Evard looked at the bet and folded. Gozegir needed a bit more time to consider his options and then folded showing the {9-Spades}. Neff got the pot pushed his way and didn't show any cards.

"Eight?" Gozegir asked Neff. Neff shook his head.

"I had an eight," Yoan Argence said.

"He had the other one," Gozegir said.

"No eight" Neff said but didn't provide any further information on what he did have in the end.
