Raising Eyebrows


We haven’t heard much from overnight chip leader Antonio Martins so far today. He’s been on a tough table and it’s only recently become a lot tougher with the addition of Team PokerStars Pros Celina Lin and Raymond Wu.

We caught Martins in a recent pot when he led for 4,200 on a flop of {7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. His opponent on the button made the call and the {9-Clubs} hit the turn. Martins checked, and then quickly called a bet of 9,500 as the {8-Diamonds} was the river card. Martins checked and his opponent also rapped the table.

Martins went to show but held back when his opponent flipped over {k-Spades}{j-Clubs} for a backdoor straight. Martins raised his eyebrows and mucked.
