Polk Picks Off Cates' Bluff

donpeters • Level 9: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

With 1.11 million in chips in the middle on the final board of {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}{7-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs}, Doug Polk checked to Daniel Cates. Cates bet 650,000, and Polk went into the tank.

"Damnit, what should I do?" asked Polk after a minute or so.

A short little bit after, Polk made the call, and Cates responded by instantly mucking his hand. The dealer informed Polk that he must show, and Polk showed the {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}.

"You're the best," commented Cates.
