Rheem Runs a Bluff

[user153638]

An under the gun player raised to 600 and was called by Chino Rheem, the hijack, and the big blind. When the flop came {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}, action checked to the hijack who bet 1,600.

Only Rheem made the call and saw the {A-Clubs} hit the turn. Both players checked to and saw the {5-Diamonds} come on the river. Rheem bet out 3,600 and the hijack mucked. Rheem then tabled {2-Clubs}{4-Clubs} to show he had hit a flush. It was good enough to take down the pot and bring his stack up to 19,700.
