Springael's Eights No Good

Joris Springael, Matt Waxman and a third player all checked the {K-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop in that order before seeing the {4-Diamonds} land on the turn. At this point, Springael decided to bet and made it 1,200 to go. Waxman called and the other player called.

The river was the {5-Hearts} and Springael checked after a minute or thinking. Waxman quickly checked behind and the third player also checked. First, Springael tabled the {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Waxman mucked, but the third player tabled the {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} and won the pot.
