"Great F***ing Bluff"

[user101598] • Level 13: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Dan Cates - "Great f***ing bluff"

Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Vanessa Selbst raised to 9,000 on the button, Dan "jungleman12" Cates three-bet to 27,000 from the small blind and Selbst called.

The dealer fanned {5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{q-Clubs}, Cates check-called a bet of 19,500 and the turn was the {k-Diamonds}. Cates checked again, Selbst fired a second bullet worth 33,500 and Cates called.

The {8-Clubs} completed the board and Cates checked a third and final time.

"All in," Selbst announced, making it around 88,000 to go.

Cates went into the tank, muttering hand possibilities and sat back in his chair. Nearly six minutes elapsed before he finally dropped a handful of pink T5,000 chips into the pot - signifying a call - and Selbst turned over {k-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a pair of kings.

Cates sprang from his chair.

"Honestly, I thought you had some bull**** like that," he yelled across the table, splashing the rest of his stack forward. "Great f***ing bluff!"

The online wiz kid stormed off and a few players at the table started to laugh.

"You ravage," Keven Stammen, who heard the tirade, told Selbst in passing.

"I expected a lot worse," Selbst admitted, grinning as she stacked her newly acquired chips.
