Bicknell Calls Becker's Bluff

ajlamers • Level 5: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante
Johannes Becker

Jun Wah Yap raised it up from the hijack and Kristen Bicknell three-bet from the small blind. Both Johannes Becker in the big blind and Yap called to see a flop of {10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Bicknell led out for 70,000 and only Becker called.

The turn brought the {2-Clubs} and Bicknell checked this time. Becker seized the opportunity to bet 125,000 but Bicknell still called. The river was the {3-Diamonds} and Bicknell checked one more time. Becker reached back for a bet of 465,000 and Bicknell went into the tank. After a couple of minutes, Bicknell eventually made the call and Becker showed jack-high. Bicknell turned over {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and was awarded the pot.

"If it was me, I would have tanked for six or seven more minutes," Martin Kabrhel piped up. "But I put him on a full house. Well played Johannes."
