Bellande seems to get coolered the most out of any high stakes player I've watched on TV. This was especially brutal because he's only losing to QQ and he's blocking a Q. Honestly I wouldn't have even considered 10 J Spades.

Question for the math people: Would Bellande have been better by getting villain to agree to run it more times? If Bellande runs it more than four times, he's guaranteed to get something (2 runs could go to the straight flush, as here, and another 2 for 10 10 and J J). What's the math in these situations? Theoretically best to just run it once?

I don't think Bellande was involved with the hand. The article didn't state who exactly was in the hand but that Rob Yong may have been involved?

That is truly a staggering hand- one player making two straight flushes, against the full house? Has anyone actually precised the odds? Yeah, I believe you are correct, Bellande was not in the hand...and it looks like Rob Yong was the losing player (always with a smile on his face!).

It's fantastic! If I lost like that, I'd consider myself the unluckiest man in the world.

I hope who ever won that hand put his lottery numbers on immediately!! Insanely lucky (or unlucky if on the receiving end). That's poker for you though.

That is indeed pretty sick. The guy had two outs (and some runner-runners), and one came on each run. If this happened in online poker, a ton of people would claim it as proof, the site was rigged ;)
Haha aint that the truth,ive seen some very talented dealers in my time too though hehe any card,anywhere any time,even met 1 with the end of his middle finger chopped off...i didnt like to ask lol.

Why is it being referred to as two one-outers? The first instance of the hand there were two outs, both the King and the 8. The second time, just the 8 for the straight flush.

But, it's already noted that the JT could have also hit runner runner Jacks or Tens.

Those are not one outers.

Hitting that straight flush when running it twice is epically bad though.
