Salas checked for the third time and Simonato was using a poker card

Salas, who sat at the table with the second largest stack, defended his big blinds with a KJ offsuit and a broken top pair. He checks as a first move, perhaps wanting to control the size of the pot when playing out of position, while putting players in his position so they can bet more and maybe bluff again in later moves bonus138.

This time Simionato decided to check, and the 6′ on the river brought three of spades and four cards to the table. Salas checked a third time and Simionato used the scare card as an opportunity to try to win the pot without a fight.

Salas checked a third time and Simionato used the scare card as an opportunity to try to lose the pot without a fight.
