Event #83: $100,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller

Kurganov Picks Off a Bluff from Miranda

• Level 20: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

A board of {a-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} was spread across the felt with the two blinds remaining in the hand. Steven Miranda led out for 450,000 from the small blind into a pot that already had around 700,000 in the middle. Igor Kurganov called from the big blind and the {a-Diamonds} paired the board on the river.

Miranda instantly splashed in a bet of 775,000 and Kurganov had a decision to make. He counted out the chips to call while he thought about what to do. Kurganov eventually made the call and Miranda tabled {j-Hearts}{3-Spades} in frustration. Kurganov showed {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and claimed the pot to soar over 12 million chips.
