Re: The poker thread

Was a tough call from O'Dea with A9off... He was at best 60/40 versus the bottom of Lamb's shoving range (well, or a 70/30 vs an ace rag) and still had enough chips to wait for a better spot imo...

O'Dea had a hard time to recover from the hand vs Heinz (aq<qq) where he lost most of his stack, 2 barrel bluff was thin even against such an aggro guy...

hmmm yeah, he'd probably be pretty 'whatever' about that lamb hand compared with the blow heinz landed seeing how strong he came into the final table... most in the tennis scene here know o'dea reasonably well as he's a better than handy club level player, his team playing in the 6 team premier league a few years back in which lower level pros have a knock in...

I have not followed it as much this year but this is certainly better than the Duhamel and Cheong shove fest of last year

Re: The poker thread

The best player won.

Horrible shove by Lamb with KJo on hand 1. Of course he had tons of fold equity, but Staszko was nitty so bad spot imo.

Interesting headsup, few mistakes by both players (apart from the huge mistake by Staszko raise folding his nut flush draw when he had a huge chiplead).

Negreanu tweeted that he spotted tons of tells from both players, will have to rewind some of it to check that.

Re: The poker thread

So the Big One for One Drop ended last night. One Million Dollars buy-in tournament, first time at the WSOP.

Congrats to Esfandiari who shipped 18+ millions for the win. Hellmuth finished 4th, which again proves that he's a hell of a tournament player.

Re: The poker thread

Hellmuth gets flack for his attitude and arrogance but he really is a great player.

Esfandiari played great in the end though. Glad he won the big one.

Re: The poker thread

Hellmuth shipped the WSOPE main event. 13th bracelet. Definitely the tournament GOAT. Congrats poker brat.

Re: The poker thread

You can't win 13 bracelets on luck. Other players have a hard time adapting to his unorthodox style imo.

Re: The poker thread

He is a good tournament player I admit. Online, he would get crushed (on cash).

Re: The poker thread

Hellmuth is not good at cash game. I don't think he ever plays online poker, and the cash game world is owned by online sharks. Anytime he tried to play at the high stakes games he got crushed.
