Savelyev Wins the Pot Like a Candle in the Wind

Dmitry Savelyev

Derek Lerner raised to 2,800 in the hijack and was called Dmitry Savelyev in the small blind as well as by the player in the big blind. On the {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop, it was checked to Lerner who led for 4,300. Savelyev came back with a check-raise to 10,300 which got the big blind out of the way. Lerner waited for a bit before he flicked his cards into the muck which gave the pot to Savelyev.

After the hand, Savelyev said, “I had a really good song going, Candle in the Wind, I had to win” and Lerner asked Savelyev if that meant he was bluffing. Savelyev responded by asking Lerner why he keeps on making him out to be a bluffer and the big blind noted that he hadn’t seen Savelyev miss yet. Lerner chimed in again saying Savelyev did bluff and Savelyev said he just wanted to know where he has at and would have folded if Lerner re-raised. In any case, Savelyev took down the pot to hit the 300,000 chip mark.
