Jose Maria Felices: Having Fun

Jude Ainsworth raised to 3,500 in first position and Simeon Naydenov cold-called in middle position. Jose Maria Felices was seated on the button and when the action folded around to him he squeezed out a three-bet of 11,000. Ainsworth folded but Naydenov made the call. The flop was {A-Spades} {9-Hearts} {5-Clubs} and both players checked. On the turn, the dealer gave us the {6-Diamonds} and after Naydenov checked Felices bet 20,000. Naydenov thought for a short while before folding his hand.

"Show the bluff," said Roberto Romanello.

Felices turned over {Q-Clubs} {2-Hearts} and Naydenov went as red as a radish.

"He outplayed you...just out of did call a 11,000 three-bet pre, didn't you?" Needled Romanello.
