Chris Brammer v Roberto Menache

Chris Brammer and Roberto Menache are having fun and games. Here are a few interesting hands involving the pair.

Hand 1

The action folds around the Brammer in the small blind who makes a standard open and Menache three-bets to 13,000 in the big blind. Brammer makes the call and the pair head to the flop of {K-Hearts} {8-Spades} {2-Diamonds}. Brammer check-called a 12,000 Menache bet before they both checked the {2-Hearts} on the turn. The last card the pair saw was the {4-Diamonds} and Brammer snap-check-called a 20,000 Menache bet.

For a long while nobody moved until Menache finally turned over {J-Hearts} {10-Clubs} for jack high and Brammer quietly scooped in the pot with ace high {A-Spades} {Q-Clubs}.

Hand 2

Brammer raised to 6,500 on the button and Menache called in the small blind. Once again the pair shared a flop and it was {A-Spades} {2-Spades} {2-Hearts}. Menache check-called a 10,500 Brammer c-bet before we saw the {5-Diamonds} on the turn. This time Menache made things very interesting with a 60,000 check-raise, after Brammer had sent him a 27,700 double barrel.

Brammer just stared at Menache, with a quizzical look, and after a period of time in the tank decided to fold his hand. Menache showed {8-} {8-}.

"Were you bluffing?" Asked a confused Brammer.

"Dunno…maybe," replied Menache.

"Would you have called if I would have moved all-in?" Asked Brammer.

"Dunno…probably," replied Menache.

"Then how could you be bluffing then?" Asked Brammer.

We didn't stick around for the third, "dunno."
