Bluffer Runs Into Tens

Toyoda Toshihiro

Pre-flop, after the UTG and small blind had limped in, the big blind decided to make a play for the pot and went all-in for his last 3,250. The UTG player, Toyoda Toshihiro, called. The small blind folded and we were off to a showdown:

BB: {2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Toyoda: {10-}{10-}

The big blind's bluff was exposed against Toyoda's pocket tens and was left needing lots of help, which did not come on the flop of {5-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}.

Even though the last two cards were {2-} and {9-}, it didn't make a difference as Toyoda still had the higher two-pair, knocking the big blind out of the tournament.
