Checking Back the Nuts?

Pierre Neuville

Pierre Neuville had a flummoxed look upon his face after Adrian Schaap checked back the nuts to him on the river.

They were heads up to a {10-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop and Neuville led for 8,000. Call. The turn was {j-Hearts} and Schaap bet 11,000 when the Team PokerStars Pro checked to him, and he called when check-raised to 30,000. The river was {a-Clubs} and the action went check-check.

Schaap tabled {k-Spades}{9-Spades} for the nuts! I can't explain that hand at all.
