Dwan’s Misfortunes Turn Favourable For Bellande

The second episode of High Stakes Poker’s Season 9 saw some interesting moments occur on the poker table. Poker pros Tom Dwan aka ‘durrrr’ and Jean-Robert Bellande aka ‘JRB’ seemed to have switched places as they played the $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em session. If you are still confused, then read on to know more.

In the past, Dwan has always been on top of his game on this popular cash game show while Bellande hasn’t been very fortunate on most of his televised plays. However, on Monday night it looks like roles were reversed as Bellande started performing better than ever with Dwan experiencing terrible misfortunes.  

The table also had popular faces like Daniel Negreanu, James Bord, Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, and Kim Hultman, a casino streamer. Bord and Hultman left the table early on and were then replaced by Bellande with a $200,000 stack and Jonathan Gibbs who entered with a $100,000 stack.

Dwan Dodges A Bullet

The moment the play began, Dwan and Bellande were immediately involved in a pot. Dwan made an early raise in the pre-flop round to $1,200 with hole cards {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}, Bellande then called with {j-Hearts}{8-Spades} from the big blind position. Dwan then bet $2,000 which was called by Bellande. When {9-Clubs} appeared on the turn, it completed JRB’s straight. He then checked and ‘durrrr’ bet another $5,000. However, Bellande immediately chec-raised $16,000. As Dwan had only a top pair and a top kicker, he called to see a {q-Spades} on the river. With $39,000 now in the pot, Bellande over-bet to $51,000 but did not get any value as Dwan was quick to fold.

Running it twice

But that was not the end for Dwan who just moments later lost to Gibbs after he missed a flush and open-ended straight draw against Gibbs. Things continued to look good for Bellande who scored his second-largest pot in the episode when he played against Patrik Antonius who went all-in preflop for $80,000 with {a-Spades}{k-Spades} against Bellande’s {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. They both agreed to run it twice and Bellande won the first run-out after a {10-Spades} came on the river. He then went on to win the second run-out which gave him the entire pot worth $166,300.

Coming back to Dwan, the player wasn’t having a good run. He moved all-in preflop with {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} which was called by Negreanu who had {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. With $228,100 in the pot, both decided to run it twice. Negreanu won both the run-outs giving him the biggest pot of the night leaving Dwan hanging dry.
