"This is a joke," said Lex Veldhuis at the end of this fairly brutal hand.
When we arrived at the table, there was a flop showing and Veldhuis and two opponents were each committing 1,000 each. On the turn, the play was checked to Veldhuis and he bet 3,700. Only one player, Kurt Younker, would call and the completed the board on the river.
This time Younker bet 7,000 and Veldhuis shoved all-in, having his opponent covered. Younker instantly called and tabled his for a rivered straight. That's when Veldhuis said the hand was a joke.
Veldhuis flung his onto the felt, his flopped straight managing to be outdrawn by Younker.
