Event #5: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Don't Tank Too Hard

Joe Bartholdi and Yuval Bronshtein had seen a flop of {8-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{10-Hearts} when Bartholdi bet 4,200 and was called by Bronshtein. The two checked around on the {5-Hearts} turn and Bartholdi checked the {6-Hearts} on the turn. Bronshtein didn't realize that Bartholdi had already checked and appeared to go into the tank for quite a long time. Eventually Bronshtein caught on and checked.

At this point, Bartholdi said "I thought I was about to get bluffed so hard," to which Bronshtein replied, "I thought you were tanking."
