Freitas Makes Gofman Fold

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Aleksandr Gofman raised to 2,500 from mid-position and was called by Fabio Freitas on the button and Thomas Boivin in the big blind.

They all checked through the {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{k-Spades} on the flop to the {q-Spades} on the turn. Boivin check-folded to Gofman's bet of 5,500 and Freitas called.

The river completed the board with the {a-Hearts}, Gofman barreled a bet of 18,500 over the line and Freitas responded with a raise of a stack of 5,000-value chips. The dealer counted them out and determined the raise was worth 45,000 in total. Gofman quickly folded. Freitas looked at each of his hole cards once more, hesitating if he should show, but then just pushed both of them over the line.
