Hasnip Picks Off Bluff

Level 21 : 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Richard Hasnip opened to 35,000 from the hijack and action folded around to James Romero, who defended his big blind. The flop came {7-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn was the {5-Hearts} and Romero thought for close to a full minute before leading out with a bet of 65,000. Hasnip made the call, bringing the {2-Diamonds} river. Romero again went deep into the tank with action on him, taking at least another minute before firing a bet of 155,000. Hasnip confirmed the amount, thought for a little while, and put out chips to call.

Immediately after Hasnip pushed the chips forward, Romero sent his cards forcefully to the muck and Hasnip took down the pot at showdown without exposing his cards.
