Lehmanski Tries the Triple-Barrel Bluff; Fails

Max Lehmanski (Day 1a)

Max Lehmanski led out for 4,400 on a flop of {q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}, and his opponent, Darrell Ticehurst, called.

The turn was the {2-Clubs}, Lehmanski fired out a second bullet worth 10,600, and Ticehurst again called.

The {7-Spades} completed the board, and Lehmanski emptied the chamber, firing a third and final bullet worth 36,700. Ticehurst tanked for longer than he had on the two prior streets combined before pulling out chips from his stack. He then counted how much he would have left if he called and was wrong - around 75,000 - and pushed the small stack forward.

Lehmanski rapped the table, signaling that Ticehurst was good, but Ticehurst wouldn't table his hand unless the German either showed his or mucked. Lehmanski flashed his hand for a second or two - it looked like {7-Hearts}{6-Spades} - and Ticehurst turned over {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a pair of aces.

He raked in the pot and now sits with 178,600 chips, while Lehmanski fell to 53,000.
