Gamble Bluffs Eyster in Huge Pot

mnuwwarah • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 4,000 ante
Nathan Gamble

Both Nathan Gamble and Kevin Eyster, occupying the cutoff and button respectively, checked a board of {5-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and a {4-Hearts} hit. Gamble tanked awhile and checked. Eyster fired 175,000. Gamble moved all in. It was around 1 million, roughly the same as Eyster's stack. That sent the top pro deep into the tank, while Gamble stared straight ahead, occasionally blinking. Finally, he removed his glasses and rubbed his eyes.

"Man, your neck's about to explode, face turning red," Eyster said with a smile. "I don't know what to believe, Jesus."

After a couple of minutes more of thought, he said he was laying down.

"I'm gonna let you have it," Eyster said. "I'll show you what I'm folding if you show me your hand. I'd like to see a bluff."

Eyster showed {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and Gamble flicked {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} into the middle.

"I didn't know if you had it in you," Eyster said. "But my range looks so thin besides a flush."

He bumped fists with Gamble.

"I like it...I like it."
