No-Limit Hold'em

Dan Cates raised to 100,000 from under the gun and Eli Elezra called from the cutoff while Ryan Leng came along from the big blind.

The flop was {10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{9-Spades} and all three players checked.

The turn was {j-Spades} and Leng checked. Cates bet 550,000 and Elezra folded while Leng called.

The river was {7-Clubs} and Leng checked once more. Cates bet 1.15 million and Leng went deep into the tank.

"All I wanted was a jack on the turn," Leng said as he spent nearly five minutes thinking.

Cates sat like a statue.

"You look like you want me to pay you."

Leng tossed the losing hand in the muck.

With some encouragement from the table, Cates showed the bluff {5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

"You're a wild man," one observer said.
