Polk Considers the Bluff

ajlamers • Level 2: 200-300, 300 ante

Marton Czuczor raised it up from the cutoff and Doug Polk three-bet to 2,600 on the button. Andre Taylor called in the big blind and Czuczor quickly folded. The flop came {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and Taylor checked to Polk who continued for 1,600. Taylor check-raised to 4,000 and Polk called.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} and Taylor checked again. Polk fired out a bet of 6,000 and Taylor just called. The river was the {a-Hearts} and Taylor led out for 11,000. Polk gave it some thought and eyed up Taylor's stack, but decided to lay his hand down.

"I wanted to double up," Taylor said as he pulled in the chips.

"You might have got them (chips) if you checked," Polk responded. "I was considering a bluff but I restrained myself."
