Who’s Kidding Who?

• Nível 3: 100-200, 0 ante

Jevgenijs Selivanovs a Latvian live satellite qualifier, opened from first position for 450 and got calls from Dominik Nitsche, the German tournament pro, in late position and Kai Herold in the big blind. They saw a flop of {Q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Hearts} which was checked to Nitsche who bet 750. Only Selivanovs called. The {8-Hearts} on the turn, Selivanovs checked and called a bet of 2,250 from Nitsche. When the {10-Clubs} completed the board Selivanovs changed tack and led out for 5,150. Nitsche didn’t like it and folded.

Selivanovs broke out in a grin and proceeded to tell Nitsche the number of hands that he had beaten. “I folded two pair.” Claimed Nitsche to much disbelief on the table who thought he was bluffing. “I had five six.” He continued, asking what Selivanovs had as he had told him. “Or I could be lying.” Nitsche finished.
