You Decide: Big Bluff or Monster Laydown?

  • Big Stax XXVI 500 10:00 PM
  • Level 24 (15000/30000/30000)
  • Players Remaining: 34

Fedor Dziuba opened from the hijack for 65k.  James Hundt defends his BB and just calls.

Flop: Q♠Q♥3♣ both players check

Turn: A♠ both players check again

River: J♣ Hundt leads out for 165k, and Dziuba raises to 575k.  Hundt tanks for a few minutes, calls clock on himself then finally folds revealing his 3♠3♥ (full house), and leaves himself with about 800k.  Dziuba takes in the pot and mucks his cards face down, leaving us all to wonder if he just made a major bluff on Hundt, or perhaps, Hundt made a monster lay-down to save his tournament life.
