Ray Qartomy-2

Ray Qartomy (pictured) completes the small blind to 200,000, and Chance Kornuth checks his option in the big blind.

Both players check to the turn on a board of Diamond KHeart JClub 3Spade 2, Qartomy bets 300,000, and Kornuth calls.

The river card is the Heart A, Qartomy bets 300,000, and Kornuth uses two of his Time Chips to tank for more than a minute before he calls.

Qartomy shows Club QClub 8 for a queen-high bluff, and Kornuth — can’t beat it. Kornuth mucks, and Qartomy wins the pot.
