Blain In Pain

Yardley • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante

Three players had got to the river of a board reading {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. Dermott Blain checked the small blind, Chun Ho Law checked the big blind and Benny Spindler bet 2,100. Blain put out the call but Law sprang a raise to 5,700. First Spindler and then a frustrated Blain folded.

Law was encouraged to show the bluff and he showed the {q-Clubs}. Blain wanted to know Spindler’s hand asking, “Did you have me beat Benny? I had king-jack.” Spindler shook his head. “I’m not having much fun today.” Blain chuckled as he contemplated his meagre stack.
