Ylitalo Bluffs Away Stack

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

In a battle of the blinds, Valentin Messina opened to 75,000 from the small blind and Robin Ylitalo called out of the big blind while enjoying a massage. On the {8-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} flop, Messina continued for 65,000 and was called before the Frenchman checked the {3-Diamonds} on the turn.

Ylitalo bet 135,000 and the Frenchman carefully counted his stack before making the call. The {4-Spades} river paired and the board and Messina checked for the second time in a row. Ylitalo moved all in and was snap-called by Messina, who flashed over his {A-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds}. The EPT10 London champion was caught bluffing with {J-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} and dropped down to less than five big blinds for the next level.
