Luca Pulls Off the Biggest Bluff of the Tournament

Webjoker • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Ivan Luca

Ivan Luca opened the button for 72,000 and small blind David Peters made the call. The big blind folded and both players checked the {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop. So far, nothing really out of the ordinary and the 110,000 bet by Peters and call by Luca on the {4-Clubs} turn wasn't remarkable yet either.

It would be the river that made for some interesting things to happen. The {3-Diamonds} appeared and Peters bet out 250,000. Luca thought about it for a bit. And some more. And then some.

After about nine minutes of tanking, Sylvain Loosli called the clock on Luca.

Floor Kate Badurek: "Ok sir, you have one minute"

Luca didn't move.

Floor Kate Badurek: "Thirty seconds sir"

No movement on Luca's part yet.

Floor Kate Badurek: "Ten Seconds, nine, eight, seven"

And just like that, without anyone seeing it coming, Luca announced all in with seven seconds to go on his clock for 1.9 million. Peters jaw dropped a little. After about a minute of thinking Peters folded his hand.

"Show the bluff" Charles Carrel laughed, "Do it for the cameras"

There were no cameras around actually, but Luca smiled big and showed the {4-Spades}{9-Spades}.
