"Never Bluff a Limit Player"

Chad_Holloway
Matt Glantz

No-Limit Hold'em

Cary Katz opened for 1,300 from early position, which Nikolai Yakovenko called from the hijack. Stephen Mack came along from the cutoff, as did Glantz on the button, and both blinds got out of the way.

Katz was first to act and checked the {7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop, opening the door for Yakovenko to bet 1,800. Glantz was the only one of his three opponents to make the call, bringing about the {2-Hearts} turn.

Yakovenko proceeded to bet 3,800, which Glantz called, before checking the {2-Hearts} river. Glantz wasted little time in betting 6,500, and revealed {9-Spades}{9-Hearts} when Yakovenko called.

"Never bluff a limit player," Yakovenko joked as he threw his cards in the muck.
