Montes Crippled, Busted After All-In Bluff Fails

mnuwwarah • Level 22: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante

At the previous level, Florian Duta opened under the gun for 40,000 and Jose Montes made it 125,000 in the next seat. Action folded back to Duta and he called. The flop came {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Duta check-called 90,000. He check-called another 180,000 on the {k-Hearts} turn and the {q-Spades} completed the board. Duta checked and Montes needed little time before telling the dealer he was all in.

It was 655,000 effective and Duta tanked long enough to use a time extension before placing a chip in the middle. Montes turned over {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}. Duta had flopped a set with {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

Montes busted out the next hand when he jammed {6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} under the gun and ran into Kristen Bicknell's kings. He flopped an open-ender but didn't get there.
