Bluffing with the Best Hand

Warwick Mirzikinian

Marvin Rettenmaier just recently made it 13,000 preflop and received a call from Warwick Mirzikinian in the big blind.

The flop came {9-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and Mirzikinian checked. Rettenmaier bet 13,500, Mirzikinian raised to 37,000 and Rettenmaier called. The {K-Clubs} on the turn prompted Mirzikinian to bet 60,000. Rettenmaier caled and to the river we went.

The {8-Diamonds} river saw a 90,000 bet from Mirzikinian and a tank-call from Rettenmaier. Mirzikinian sheepishly flipped over {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a pair of eights and Rettenmaier was visibly disgusted. He threw his cards in the muck.

Another Pot for Rettenmaier

The last two players of the night continue to battle it out. The most recent hand consisted of Marvin Rettenmaier making it 13,000 preflop. A call was made by Warwick Mirzikinian and both players witnessed a {K-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Spades} flop. Mirzikinian check-called a 13,500 bet from Rettenmaier and both players were allowed access to a turn.

A {8-Spades} on fourth street brought another check-call from Mirzikinian, this time for 37,500. A river {10-Diamonds} induced a check-fold from Mirzikinian, and Rettenmaier raked in a nice pot.

The {J-Spades} fourth street brought another bet from Rettenmaier, this time for 92,500. After a few moments of contemplation Mirzikinian deposited his cards in the muck.

Warwick Mirzikinian was the preflop raiser (13,500), and he and Marvin Rettenmaier went off to a {9-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {3-Spades} flop, and Rettemaier check-raised from 10,000 to 27,500. Mirzikinian called, and they both checked through the {K-Clubs} turn. The river brought more action, though, as the {6-Diamonds} drew a bet of 46,500 from Rettenmaier. Mirzikian raised to 160,000, and Rettenmaier spent a long, long while in the tank. It was long enough that Mirzikinian had to call the clock.

Rettenmaier took most of his time before making the call, and Mirzikian's {9-Diamonds} {9-Spades} earned him the pot. It's given him a significant chip lead as the two men step away for a quick break.

Fabrizio Baldassari Eliminated in 6th Place ($68,151)

Once he got his man down on the mat, it wasn't long before Joseph Cheong sealed the deal.

The action began with Cheong raising to 12,000 and Fabrizio Baldassari matching the bet to see the flop. It came {8-Clubs} {3-Hearts} {A-Spades}, and Baldassari check-called 15,000. This hand would take very much the same line as the crippling hand; Baldassari check-raised the {6-Clubs} turn again from 35,500 up to 85,000. The {J-Hearts} filled out the board, and Baldassari bet another 115,000. Just like the last time, Cheong made his river raise, and this one was enough to cover his opponent.

Baldassari seemed to know he was likely in bad shape, but he had little choice by that point. He stuck his last ~140,000 into the middle with {8-Diamonds} {6-Hearts}, but his two pair were no good. Cheong's {A-Diamonds} {J-Spades} had rivered the better two pair, and with it comes the rest of Baldassari's chips.

It was a valiant effort for the Italian, but his run has come to an end here in the Round of 8. His efforts are worth $68,151, and he's just notched his first cash on American soil.

Former November Niner Joseph Cheong is on to the Final Four!
