Baranov Shows The Bluff

Christopher Brammer opened with a 40,000 from middle position and Sergii Baranov called from the cutoff. The rest of the table folded and the two were heads up to the {8-Spades}{2-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop. Brammer check-called a bet of 57,000 and the turn brought the {5-Hearts}.

Brammer checked a second time and Baranov moved 105,000 into the middle. Once again Brammer decided to stick around to see the {6-Spades} on the river. Brammer checked for a third time and Baranov bet 205,000. Brammer went into the tank for well over two minutes before finally releasing.

"He's just like Santa!" said Baranov as he turned over {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} for nothing but queen-high.
