Bluffs Abound

A couple of interesting hands just occurred in which players bluffed, were successful, and subsequently showed.

In one, Cathy Dever opened for 37,000 from middle position, Feming Chan called from the cutoff, then Aaron Overton reraised to 102,000 from the small blind. Dever got out of the way, but Chan stuck around.

The flop came {6-Clubs}{K-Spades}{2-Hearts}, and Overton led for 100,000. Chan made it 222,000 to go, and Overton responded by shoving all in, thereby forcing a fold from Chan.

Overton then showed his hand… {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. "Let's go!" said Overton.

In the other hand, Jack Thomas started things with a raise to 45,000 from under the gun and got a single caller in Pete Rios playing from the hijack seat. The flop came {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn brought the {5-Diamonds} and another check from Thomas, and Rios responded with a bet of 55,000. Thomas then check-raised to 200,000, and Rios called.

The river was the {6-Spades}. Thomas led with a bet of 200,000 this time, and Rios came back with an all-in reraise, which caused Thomas to fold.

Rios then showed his hand… {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}! He'd been counterfeited on the end and had pushed with his four kicker.
