The Rich Get ...

We show up to see a flop of 2♠️J♣️6♠️, one player leading out for 4000, another calling, and chipleader Jon des Pois making it 20,000.

The original bettor gets out of the way, the short stack moves all in for an additional 23,000 and des Pois has this deer-in-the-headlights look that he's been caught bluffing and doesn't want to show his hand despite having more than 200,000 behind him.

He eventually finds a call and shows A2 for bottom pair, while the shortstack shows Q♠️7♠️ for a flush draw.

"I can't believe you two," says the original bettor who states he had a pair better than 2nd pair on the board.

The turn and river fail to be a spade, and des Pois eliminates a player, moving to 318,000.
