Rene Bourbeau Overbets, Shows a Card

Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

On a flop of Qheart3spade2heart, the small blind checks and Diana Shomshoum leads out for 7,500 from the big blind. Rene Bourbeau raises to 95,000 and the button and big blind quickly fold. 

"Well, this is an interesting spot," said the small blind as he stood up from the table. 

Shomshoum goes into the tank for a few moments before speaking up. 

"Am I supposed to fold my aces?" asked Shomshoum. "You got a set?" 

The two exhange a few sentences in French before Shomshoum switches back to english. 

"I'm too embarrassed to show my hand," said Shomshoum right before she mucks her hand. 

The whole table begs Bourbeau to show his hand. He shows the Kspade before collecting the pot. 

Rene Bourbeau - 340,000
Diana Shomshoum - 181,000

As always, the Royal Flush Girls are along for the ride with the World Poker Tour, and they will be here at the Playground Poker Club for a meet-and-greet with fans at 4:30 pm.

RFGs Raysa Peres and Kat Kelley will be signing autographs and posing for photos with fans in the hallway between the cash games and the tournament area, just past the cashier's cage.

If you're on Twitter (or really, even if you're not), you might be able to get some advice from Kat on taking better selfies. She's a bit of an expert, as you can see in the video below.

Last Night's partypoker Player Punchout

Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

PartyPoker WPT Player Punchout
On Day 1B of the partypoker WPT Canadian Spring Championship, the Royal Flush Girls and video hostess Melissa Castello hosted the partypoker Player Punchout -- a pseudo-boxing match for partypoker qualifiers and other players to have a little fun during the Day 1B dinner break.

In the photo above, Melissa Castello (left) and Royal Flush Girl Kat Kelley test out the "boxing ring" in the partypoker Lounge before the players arrive.


PartyPoker WPT Player Punchout
Kat Kelley kicks off the Round 1 action by performing the traditional ring-girl duties.

Those of you who don't follow Kat on Twitter (@Kat_Kelley_) may not know this, but when she isn't at WPT events, Kat also works as a ring girl for the World Series of Fighting (WSOF). So of everyone involved in the partypoker Player Punchout, Kat probably had the most experience in this environment.


PartyPoker WPT Player Punchout
In the first match, Maximilian Droege (left) faced off against WPT Champions Club member Marvin Rettenmaier. While the players wore oversized inflated boxing gloves, they had to keep their feet on the tape and try to knock their opponent off the tape.


PartyPoker WPT Player Punchout
partypoker qualifier Gary Josefczyk (flanked by Royal Flush Girls Raysa Peres and Kat Kelley) won his match to earn the big prize -- a partypoker Victory Belt that was handcrafted at the last minute using whatever materials were nearby.


PartyPoker WPT Player Punchout
At the end of it all, WPT Commentator Mike Sexton had some fun showing off the legendary Crane Technique as seen in the 1984 film, "Karate Kid." (Nobody was willing to challenge Sexton.)
