Tell and Show Time

Some players seem to be happy to show when they think they've made a good fold, or got a good bluff through.

Mathew Frankland's open picked up three callers en route to a {3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flop. He continued for 525 was called by Rudy Blondeau and Kyle Julius, both in position. The Brit fired 4,200 on the {4-Diamonds} turn and only Julius called to see the {k-Diamonds} river where faced an 8,125 bet.

Julius thought for a few minutes and open folded {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. Frankland quietly raked in the chips.

A few moments later on a table not so far away Ilan Boujenah was faced with a 11,100 river bet from Dori Yacoub. There was around 16,000 chips in the middle and the board read {k-Spades}{4-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Boujenah tank-folded and was shown {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. He just shook his head.
