He then decided to take some shots at bigger sngs with rather disasterous results. The turn brings another 5, giving Gus his quads and Daniel 6s full. Good starting hands in Hi-Lo might look like this.
An 8 of clubs hits the river and Antonio gives up. During the last few episodes of Season 4, Patrik Antonius and Sam Farha had been butting heads for a while.
The last time they clashed — it resulted in the biggest pot in High Stakes Poker history at the time. In this hand, Sam gets his revenge. Greenstein opens up the pot with A-J to 4K. It comes out A-J-K, all spades. Farha makes the call again and the river blanks.
This is what happens when two gamblers, with a lot of money go up against each other. Against anyone else, Antonius may have won the pot with that river bet but against Farha and with the history between the two, it ended badly for the Finnish superstar.
Daniel Negreanu — Brilliant Benyamine. The flop comes out with two spades. He leads out for 20K, Brunson calls with his overpair and so does Benyamine with his straight draw and smaller flush. The turn brings a Queen of spades completing both flushes as well as giving Brunson top set. Benyamine checks, Negreanu value-bets 28K, Brunson calls and then Benyamine makes his move.
He check-raises it up to about K, and in doing so squeezes Daniel in between himself and Brunson. Negreanu, clearly frustrated and very confused folds the best hand, and Doyle, getting roughly 3: Upon realising he folded the best hand, Negreanu slams his chips down frustratingly.
What a brilliant play. But this was only the beginning. Esfandari folds A-Q out of pure respect for the two veterans and Gus takes the flop heads up with Negeranu.
And what a beautiful flop it was , giving both players a set. The turn brings another 5, giving Gus his quads and Daniel 6s full. Tom Dwan sure shook things up when he arrived in Season 5. Before Dwan — big pots usually involved big hands vs. Yes, the infamous Isildur1. And last we have his most recent foray into the high stakes cash games. When isildur finally does go completely broke he can charge admission to ride the rollercoaster that is his graph.
It looks so smooth because the guy puts in more volume than any player in the world. He shipped over a million last year at middle stakes alone! Hrmm what do we have here? Some small stakes, some more small stakes, some more small stakes, oooh a tourney bink and Main Event final table!
Cada followed that up with some failed shots at bigger games. According to his graph it didn't work out very well for him. He then continued to grind those same online tournaments.
The Cirque de Soleil billionaire had a brief and incredibly costly love affair with nosebleed online poker in Just a drop in the bucket eh Guy? What's even more surperising is that he's playing nosebleed PLO and he's never had a downswing worse then 10bis.
Those are the top ten we've found. If you've got one that's even sicker drop a link in the comments below. Phil Galfond graph Is pretty bad ass making k 5 months later loosing It then afterwards not loosing winning 5mill one of my role models In poker. I'm witnessing this happen as I type this.
And this is especially encouraging for people who just start playing poker. Hardware, software, gadgets, etc; like poker, but from the future. I appreciate the contribution, but let's be honest, there's no skill involved in that hand. Now if the guy folded his aces, then that would be one of the sickest!
The 72o bluff is amazing though, I can't believe I forgot about it when I wrote my original post. I think this is my fave Patrik Antonius vs Phil Laak. Originally Posted by chopitup.

Am interested to hear some thoughts on the 64 vs 96 hand from earlier, doesn't Sauce basically give up on the turn?
So he basically gives himself a 6 outer although only 3 of those were good in order to have any shot at winning. Originally Posted by JoeDiego. Anyway here are some sick hands! Last edited by SmokeyJ; at In person the sickest one was at a home game. It was a NL game and there was a straddle.
The blinds fold and he forgot about the straddler and he flips his cards over and reveals A-Q. The straddler decideds to call. The flop comes Then the straddler shoves all in and the exsposed cards guy calls! The straddler has for 2 pair but it comes running A-Q to give the guy who exsposed the cards the hand.
It was so sick. It was like he think that I think that he thinks type hand. There is nothing "sick" They are just gambling. Originally Posted by kuj0. BB code is On.
