The hand lasted just 29 seconds, but it was time enough for online player Rosiepod to claim one of the largest pots ever seen at Betfair Poker.
After calling a series of what were later revealed to be aggressive bluffs by competitor sincero, the rounder won a $207,000 pot.
Rosiepod made a king-high flush after the flop and proceeded to call sincero's bets until both players had contributed more than $100,000 to the hand. The final bluff from sincero would cost him more than $60,000.
"He knew that if Rosiepod called he'd be beaten; it was a gutsy play," said Betfair spokesman Oliver Bowen.
"On the other hand, from the way sincero was betting, Rosiepod must have been concerned about the only hand that could beat him - these stakes are not for the faint hearted."
Such high-stakes play is becoming a regular occurrence at Betfair Poker, the company said in a release. Pots in excess of $150,000 are common for players and, with a maximum rake per pot of only $1 at the $250/$500 No-Limit Hold'em tables, there is a lot of value for the big pros, it said.
Some of the high-stakes players at Betfair Poker include Bennyboi, Doooom, Duhfin, Erik1234, Hijay, kunkku, LoisLane, lolmenot, sincero, -secret- and The Slayer.
