With the board showing 10s8s5cJh on the turn, the player in the small blind checked, and Donavon Wright bet 150,000 from the big blind. The UTG+1 player raised to 510,000, and the small blind folded. Wright called.

The river card was the 7s, and Wright moved all in with a big stack. His opponent paused for a moment or two before he folded, and Wright proudly slammed down his KsQh on the table for a king-high bluff.

Wright celebrated loudly, at one point chanting “Big bluff. Big bluff. Big bluff.”

When there was a break in the chant, his opponent quietly but clearly said, “I had the same hand.”

Wright sat back down in his seat, and as he stacked the pot, he said, “That’s my last bluff of the day.”
