Event #67: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event World Championship

Keogh Shows the Bluff in Massive Pot

dsalituro • Level 8: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

On the last hand before dinner break, a large pot had already developed by the river when Glen Keogh bet 135,000 on a board of {4-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}.

Aleksandr Shevlyakov tanked for several minutes, staring down Keogh and cutting out the chips to call. He eventually decided to fold as Keogh showed {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for just a pair of eights before heading off for dinner.

"Well done, sir," tablemate John Frenz said, giving Keogh a fist bump.
