Talking His Way Out of a Call

• Nível 6: 250-500, 75 ante

Grant Levy called the reporters over to witness what he said was going to be "a bad beat.". On a board reading {A-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} his opponent, who had initially checked, faced a bet of 2,125 from Levy and was pondering the call.

"If you fold I get no value and if you call you win," Levy said.

His opponent looked baffled but asked, "How do you know I'll win?"

"I just feel it," Levy replied. His opponent stared at the board a little longer before showing the {A-Spades} and folding. Levy shook his head and seemed tempted to show his opponent his cards before sliding them to the muck.

He later told us he had bottom set and that he should "shut up next time".
