Event 21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em


Noah Vaillencourt started the day with a yo-yoing stack. Getting up big, then getting knocked low, but it seems like he has found his groove. Recently we saw him raising a bet of 7,000 to 22,500 from late position against his opponent on a {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} board. A call was made and both players got to see the {4-Clubs} appear on the river.

Vaillencourt's opponent checked, and he opted to fire out a pot sized bet of 44,500. Action flipped back to the early position player who took his time deciding what he wanted to do. He measured out the bet, eyeballed all the chips in play, and when he finished doing that he did it all over again. Eventually after a substantial amount of time had passed Vaillencourt's opponent folded.

Vaillencourt immediately grinned from ear to ear and showed the table a {A-Spades}. Was Vaillencourt bluffing? or was he bluffing with the best hand? We do not know, and neither does Vaillencourt's opponent.
