Bretzel Shows 'Em

mnuwwarah • Level 12: 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante
John Bretzel

After an early open to 5,500 and a call from John Bretzel in middle position, Missy Bartelme made it 16,000 on the button. Both players called her and they saw a {4-Hearts}{j-Spades}{9-Spades} flop. Action checked to Bartelme and she bet 21,000. It stayed three way for that price to the {6-Diamonds} turn, which checked through.

On the {q-Spades} river, the preflop opener counted his stack then checked. Bretzel bet 41,000 and Bartelme folded pretty quickly. The other player took some thinking time but folded as well.

Someone told Bretzel to show the bluff.

"You don't wanna see it," he teased. "Do you wanna see it?"

The other players said they did and Bretzel tabled his {j-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Bartelme said she folded an overpair.

"How could I put him on anything but a flush?" she said.

Players are on the final break of Day 1b, after which registration will close.
