VIDEO: Seiver Explains His Bluff Against Reinkemeier at the Big One for One Drop Final Table

Posted at 23:30 2014-08-19 by PokerNetwork Staff

You remember about that unbelievable fold featured in last week's Big One for One Drop coverage? If you missed ESPN's episodes about the final table of the largest tournament ever held, then you should probably want to check out the videos first.

The hand

If your workplace does not allow videos, let us quote our previous live report post about the hand:

Blinds: 300,000/600,000/75,000

Hand #13: Scott Seiver raised to 1.2 million from the hijack, Tobias Reinkemeier defended his big blind, and the flop fell {4-Clubs}{q-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Reinkemeier checked, Seiver bet 1.5 million, and Reinkemeier called. The turn was the {j-Clubs}. Reinkemeier checked, and Seiver moved all in for 6.825 million.

The German tanked for the better part of three minutes before standing up out of his chair, then sitting down once again. Reinkemeier hung his head over the back of the chair — he's sitting in it backwards — and cocked his head as he stared down Seiver. The two exchanged light words, then both chuckled. The tank continued for a few more minutes. Reinkemeier did his best to get anything he could out of Seiver, but he didn't budge.

Finally, the clock was called, and 55 seconds later Reinkemeier folded, saying he had aces.

"There's NO way you had aces!" Seiver objected.

Reinkemeier pulled his cards back and indeed revealed two aces — we believe they were the {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades} — and mucked them once again.

Seiver showed the bluff with the {k-Spades}{10-Spades}.
