Wrong Timing for Balsiger

zedmaster84 • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

We didn't catch the full action but Jake Balsiger defended his big blind against the preflop raise of Gabriel Balsiger. The {2-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop was checked through and on the {Q-Spades} turn, Balsiger tried to bluff his opponent out of the hand with {K-}{10-}. "King ten, no spades," he said.

That would turn into an incredible bad timing because Blumenthal had the {6-Spades}{7-Spades} and was guaranteed the double up already. A meaningless blank on the river completed the board and Balsiger is now short.
