Gediminas Uselis raised from the button to 600,000 with Ah4d, Jacob Ferro called from the small blind 9c8c, and Selahaddin Bedir called from the big blind with 9h2h.

All three players checked to the turn on a board of 10d5s4h, Ferro checked, and Bedir bet 850,000. Uselis called, and Ferro check-raised to 2,100,000. Bedir folded his 9h2h, and Uselis called.

The river card was the 9d, Ferro bet 1,500,000, and Uselis used two of his Time Chips to tank for more than a minute before he raised to 6,000,000, leaving himself just 200,000 behind.

Ferro used two of his Time Chips to tank for more than a minute before he folded his 9c8c, and Uselis took the pot with his Ah4d.

Wow. Ferro bluff-raised the turn with nine high, then rivered a pair of nines and got bluff-raised by Uselis.
