      Twicet takes the inititive with a semibluff on the flop and continues on the turn. The pot is big enough to get stacks in when he hits his backdoor straight on the river.

      40 BB (2 handed).

      szuru tries to float his opponent and turns the heat up when a scarecard hits on the turn. As he continues the bluff on the river, TwiceT would have a hard time calling even if he had a better hand than bottom pair.

      Hand Information
      60 BB (2 handed).

      Winning some showdowns certainly do help in winning heads up matches. Both players had 3 outs to scoop on the turn, and TwiceT hit his.

      Hand Information
      60 BB (2 handed).
