Bianco Shows the Bluff

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship  

On the river, the board read K 9 5 5 6 and Benny Bianco (utg+1) fired 10k.  Gavin Smith (bb) let out what could only be called a growl, and said "I don't know what to do".

He tanked for a moment, counted out the chips, checked out what he would have left, then opted for the fold.  Benny showed him QJ offsuit for squa-doosh.   "I knew it!" Gavin said.

Level 4 has ended and players are enjoying their second and last break of the day.  They will play two more levels and call it a night.
