Pires Picks Off Big Bluff

tayke2 • Level 30: 1,500,000-3,000,000, 350,000 ante

In the first significant hand of heads up play Eduardo Pires raised to 6,000,000 preflop, and Lukas "rustyhusky" Hafner called. The flop came down {10-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}, and Hafner checked to Pires, who continued for three million. Hafner check raised to 11 million, Pires called, and the {9-Clubs} hit the turn.

Hafner continued the aggression with a bet of 18,890,000, and Pires called once again to see the {2-Diamonds} complete the board. Hafner fired once again, 22,900,000 and change this time, and Pires looked him up one more time.

Hafner showed just {j-Hearts}{8-Spades} for a busted straight, and Pires rolled over {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds} to take a big lead in this heads up battle.
