€5,300 Main Event

Tavitian Shows the Bluff

[user68268] • Nível 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Pablo Alexander Tavitian, winner of the 2013 Latin American Poker Tour Chile event, raised to 3,300 from early-middle position. The small blind and big blind both made the call to see the flop come down {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Both blinds checked, and Tavitian bet 5,200. The small blind check-raised to 20,300, the big blind folded, then Tavitian made the call.

On the turn, an offsuit {8-} peeled off, and the small blind led for 20,500. Tavitian raised all in for effectively 75,000 or so, as the small blind had right around 55,000 behind. After tanking for three or four minutes, the small blind had the clock called on him. Time ran all the way down and then expired before the small blind acted, so his hand was then declared dead, and Tavitian was to be awarded the pot. Tavitian showed that he had the {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a bluff as he was pushed the pot. The small blind claimed to have folded the {4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, although he didn't show his hand.
