[Removed:372] Shows Liperis the Bluff

BrandonBloom • Level 16: 2,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

With roughly 230,000 in the pot on a {8-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades} completed board, Yiannis Liperis checked the big blind and Gregory [Removed:372] bet 100,000 in the cutoff, sending Liperis into the tank.

"Do you have it?" Liperis asked. [Removed:372] only made an ambiguous hand motion.

Eventually, [Removed:372] called the clock and Liperis quickly mucked his cards.

[Removed:372] threw down the {10-Hearts}{9-Spades} onto the table for a busted straight draw.

"Sometimes it looks obvious for a reason," Liperis said as [Removed:372] added the chips to his stack.
