Oh, You're From the Ukraine?

JC Alvarado was faced with a 7,700-chip bet with the board reading {9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}, and about 10,000 laying in the middle. Alvarado went deep into the tank, and eventually called.

His opponent tabled {j-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a flush, saying "I'm from the Ukraine."

Apparently Alvarado had asked him about his country of origin.

"Oh," Alvarado responded. "I would've folded."

The table broke into laughter, as the Ukrainian gentleman stacked Alvarado's chips.
