Helstern Picks off the Bluff

HillKerby • Level 17: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Jorden Helstern

Jay Teel opened on the button and Jorden Helstern defended his big blind. Helstern check-called Teel's continuation-bet of 16,000 on {k-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and the turn came {7-Spades}. Both players checked.

The dealer burned and turned the river {j-Diamonds} and Helstern bet 12,000. Teel slid in a raise and Helstern gestured for a count that was totaled to be 80,000. He thought for a bit and then found a call.

Teel showed air in {q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and Helstern tabled {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts} to take down the pot with top pair.
