  2. Why is a guy who hates poker talking about poker hands

  3. What Klein did is fairly common in PLO too. Both players will obviously have Broadway and you can "float" and represent stronger hands with the right action and run out.

  7. How many value hands can klein really have here? JJ,99,KK would most likely 3 bet preflop… leaves us with 9 combos of J9, and 3 combos of 22(which he may decide to 3bet pre) – so 12 or so combos of value hands….

  13. That TV presenter cadence and rhythm is so forced and difficult to listen to for the love of the god just speak normally

  14. I think I would have put Klein on a house too. The way he came over the top of Croak's bet on the flop. Then continued to fire on the turn. The call on the turn after Galfond's re raise. Then, the 150K nonchalant bet ont he river after the boat came available.

    The old veteran played the Aggro flush draw to perfection

  15. isn't Glafond's turn raise too small ?? shouldn't it be like 110 k..??

  16. Now I remember why I stopped watching HSP back in the day. Damn that announcer is horrible (Not Doug, the other guy.) =P

  17. I wonder if Galfond's raise could've been a bit bigger here. Maybe raising 15-20k more than what he did.

  18. you should have mentioned how it's fairly obvious croak had a jack with his lead/call on the flop and sigh/fold on the turn. There's so few combos of full houses Kline can have.. basically 22, J2s, J9s.

    Reply
  19. i think galfond is more a plo player than a nlh player….or at least at that time…i think most of the other players usually played on poker after dark/ HSP they would' ve made that call…

  22. I don't blame Galfold for folding. Klein is prob folding most draws on the turn. QT is out of the equation cause he would have 3bet the turn. Any K doesnt make sense cause he would not donk bet the river for value. KJ wouldnt raise the flop. Phil has Q of spades in his hand so that eliminates a lot of combo draws. Klein played this like J9, 22 and maybe 99. Only bluffs are Axs and maybe T8. Im assuming Klein doesnt play wild like durrr or isildur. Tough spot but it's fold imo.

  23. East for me to say but I think it's a bad fold. if I am wrong tell me why otherwise what your video says.

  24. i tink i can win wsop bracelet doug but im broke 😞

  25. Heya Doug. One thing I noticed is that Galfond is holding the Queen of spades, which again reduces the number of flush draw combos Klein can have on the river. You mentioned the possibility of Klein having Queen high flush draws so it looks like that got overlooked – just a bit of feedback. Love the channel, keep it up.

  29. Great analysis Doug. The thing that most impresses me about your videos is how respectful you are to all players, even pros who are often disparaged and recreational players. You give everyone credit for being a thinking player, and even if you disapprove of a play, you never speak ill of the player himself. Your good example is appreciated.

  30. I would have snap called. His small bet size on the turn of only $28,000 made it seem like a blocker bet so he could get a decent price to see another card and make his flush……Phil Galfond should have just went all in when he saw that turn bet.

  31. I think Phil should fold flop. bet and raise in front, he has a straight draw on a flush board. there are way better spots. and the donk bettor can sometimes have flopped sets so he can get 3 bet which sucks. after he does call and spikes the nuts on the turn his raise size is awful. he's laying 4 to 1. he polarized his range with his raise so he should be raising larger. which incidentally would have won him the pot, even if the rest of the hand plays the same. his turn raise gets called and board pairs and donk bet 3/4 now it's an easy call. because of the turn raise being larger, J9 can't have called, you know he doesn't have KK because of preflop, why would KJ raise the flop? J2 seems unlikely, so it's either deuces full or the numerous flush draws which missed. Phil galfond outplayed himself here.

  32. i would think its not goo to call a straight draw with a flush draw present. at least not 3 way when someone is more likely to have a flush drawn and shallower stacked im assuming cause the straddle

  33. Surely holding the Qs makes Galfonds hand a fold.. surprised you didn't mention it?

  34. I love these. Keep em up! Thanks!

  35. 10:31 = "What else could you have called with" ?

    A flush draw Phil, a flush draw … ( with the thought to rep a House if the board pairs and he misses his flush )

    but, to be fair, even Antonio ( 9:57 ) thought Bill had called the turn with a set and then done the old – "I have to bet for value now that I've hit my House, in case Phil checks back.

    So Phil has to think "Did Bill call with a flush draw, or a scared set?

    So, we must surmise, that both Phil and Antonio didn't think that Bill had it in him to donk the River with a missed Flush.

    Oh Dear! – the Donked River is "always " a big hand!

    Ha ha!

    PS

    I love these videos Mr Polk ( Doug, if I may? ) – absolutely brilliant!
