Shorr Snaps Off Bluff


Shannon Shorr opened for 2,700 from early position and was called by one player in middle position and the player in the big blind.

The flop came {Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and action was checked to the player in middle position, who bet 6,500. The player in the big folded, but Shorr made the call.

The {3-Clubs} fell on the turn and Shorr checked once more - prompting a 10,000 bet from his opponent. Shorr tossed in another call to see the river, which brought the {10-Spades}.

Shorr checked a final time and his opponent fired a final time for 20,000. Shorr grimaced and slammed the handful of chips he had in his hand on top of his remaining chip stack - clearly distraught about his decision. After tanking for nearly four minutes, Shorr announced, "Call," and his opponent immediately threw his hand into the muck.

Shorr asked if he had to show and was told, "Yes," so he revealed his hand - {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} and scooped the pot.

Shorr is up to 90,000 as a result of the tough call.
