Event #51: $3,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Chan's Bluff Called


With the board showing {a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}, Terrence Chan led out from the big blind with a bet of 12,000. His lone opponent actually threw 16,000 chips into the pot with a call, then said, "Well now you know I was willing to call 16. I guess you got a read."

The river was the {5-Diamonds}. Chan fired again, this time for 20,000. His opponent tanked for about a minute before taking a stack of yellow (T1,000) chips and thrusting them into the center of the table. Chan didn't say a word as he turned up {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}, a stone bluff. His opponent showed {a-Spades}{q-Spades} to take the pot with a pair of aces.

"Hell of a call," said a player from a neighboring table observing the hand.

Chan is down to 53,000.
