Cliff Josephy Makes a Good Call

ElleSriracha • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Action folded around to Cliff Josephy in the cutoff and he raised to 35,000. Michael Bartholomew was in the big blind and decided to defend.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Bartholomew checked. Josephy paused for a moment and decided to check back.

The turn was the {7-Spades} and Bartholomew led out for 38,000. Josephy called.

The river was the {9-Spades}. Bartholomew led out again, this time for 90,000. Josephy went into the tank and after about a minute he called.

Bartholomew tabled {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for queen high and Josephy tabled {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} for ace high, raking in the pot.
