Opalikhin Calls Vela's Bluff

• Nível 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Aleksei Opalikhin

Four players went to a turn for the second hand in a row since the resumption of this seven-handed final table here in the $5,300 PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event. This one went to the river.

On a board showing {10-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, Michael Vela made it 175,000 and got two folds, but Aleksei Opalikhin called with {6-Spades}{5-Spades} and he was right to do so.

Vela drops a little, while Opalikhin (pictured) continues to read very well indeed.
