    What is your first impression of Loose Cannon Massimiliano Martinez?

    • Damoinion
      Damoinion 2 days ago

      Years after the fact.
      So far he seems a solid player but I can't help that every time I see him talking, I get a visual reminder of a particular VERY NSFW hentai webcomic!
      (No, I won't link it here or anywhere associated with YT)
      Very distracting.

    That's not fair. Not every loose cannon has Phil Hellmuth at the table. How are they supposed to make profit? :D

  • joshykel
    joshykel 2 years ago +141

    Hellmuth obviously tried to bully the loose cannon, even talking at him as if he couldn't understand what Phil was saying. And obviously the cannon could tell Phil was bluffing and felt confident enough to call. Great read and great call. Brunson always says that the math and statistics of the hand will always lose out to gut feeling and being able to read people, in this case he was right.

    • Switters
      Switters 2 months ago

      @joshykel First you are misrepresenting the quote. He is talking about a specific situation. Second, Doyle is great not for his poker playing ability, but for his impact on the game itself. So quoting him as an expert and trying to brute force a few logical fallacies onto someone else is mind blowingly dense. Keep your appeal to authority my guy, and don't try to get on your high horse when your riding ability seems questionable.

      @Mystery Fan you have any other suggestions on where the show is now? would love to rewatch the original seasons, and get to watch the new seasons without having to pay such insane amounts. For that price I'd rather have paid and gotten just s7 as a permanent download

    Praise to the loose cannon for making that call. He totally got it right and I think most players/pros would never make that call. He knew Phil was bluffing but man that was a great call 😂

      especially now that so many of the shows are behind insane paywalls. I get that they cost money and they don't get ad revenue like they used to when poker was at this insane level of popularity. But charging almost 3 times the amount it cost for many streaming services is outrageous.

      "Max might have a vampire truth that he tasted and just said 'I'm going to go with that truth'. Because I've met fellow highlanders, vampires, whatever, once in a while and they have a taste. They know. It can happen. I'm giving him credit for the possibility that he's a mutant genius. I'm just giving him credit. Max, I'm saying even though that's bad long-run poker I'm opening the door to the possibility that you're a mutant genius."

      I mean, there is a significant difference between calling with top pair than bluffing. That was actually a good bluff, guy was just sticky.

    • Kupferdrahtful lol

      Calling is very different to betting, you can be betting 3 high and it can be the right play

    • Jester Azazel

      Essentially he's mad he can't bully him by having more wealth to work with. Hellmuth is such a bad sport.

  • Ross Arnold

    Calling Hellmuth raise best move I’ve seen on this show
    Even laak coming over and saying I wouldn’t have called that shows it’s boldness

    • Elliot T
      Elliot T Year ago +2

      I mean... it's ballsy, and most people would fold. But it's such fucking backwards thinking whenever Phil is on the wrong side of a decision.
      "He bet 15k with a pair of 10s. And he called 60k... with a pair of 10s".... well, yes. Obviously you sensed weakness, which is why you interpreted his lead out as a blocker bet instead of ensuring you don't check behind. But perhaps he sensed you were bluffing? Which you were...

  • Mr anonymous

  • Alex Laslau

    In the beginning when he said he is confident in his game. I believed that. He looks like he knows poker. The closest guy to this one was the actual Cannon dude guy who was also a beast:D

  • joshykel
    joshykel 10 months ago +1

    Upon reflection after seeing that 10 9 hand that Martinez called with, I understand what Helmuth was saying, but honestly this is THE BEST cannon easily. and not just for that gutsy call, but just his style of play as a whole.

  • David Byzewski

    • Westhood Qualzini
      Westhood Qualzini Year ago

      @Im Bory your saying I’m super new to poker when all the pros in this video disagree with you and say the most basic shit ever. God I hate smug people like you who thinks they know it all

    • Westhood Qualzini
      Westhood Qualzini Year ago

      @Im Bory his point about that being horrible in the long run was proven when the loose cannon paid hellmuth off with his 5 full house a couple hands later calling with ace high.He tried to make a hero call again. Sometimes you just to tip your hat to the other player and let it go even if he is bluffing. Thats not a call you should ever make when your a loose cannon and 100,000 on the line. Hellmuth made a great raise and he made a even better hero call. That’s why hellmuth was upset dealing with your original comment. Oh your but your an expert. Yes master you know everything when your saying the most poker normie basic shit ever. But yes master call the bluff master

    • Im Bory
      Im Bory Year ago +1

      @Westhood Qualzini God, you are really new. Thats not a call you make "in the long run" its a in the moment call because he had a read lmao. Sad that people like you even comment on this stuff.

    • Westhood Qualzini
      Westhood Qualzini Year ago

      @Im Bory hellmuth made a good raise there it’s just that the loose cannon made a good call in that circumstance and hellmuth was frustrated because more than likely that raise should have made weak top pair fold there. You only beat a bluff there but you can’t make a hero call every time. I’m explaining this to you because I genuinely think your poker knowledge is lacking. I genuinely think that with your responses. But again your going to listen to none of this and fire back with insults

    • Westhood Qualzini
      Westhood Qualzini Year ago

      @Im Bory oh yeah there you go. If you think calling a river reraise with a pair of 10s with a weak kicker will win you a lot of money in the long run go ahead do it. But no only do you disagree with me you disagree with the pros in this video. He made the right call in that circumstance but the point hellmuth and laak were making was you can’t assume every time your opponent is bluffing and you pay off your opponent on what should be a standard fold

    Laak calling Max a vampire is hilarious. Max has been around for a hot minute before even coming on this show and many knew him before coming on this show. They follow rankings in other countries as well because they all play the same circuits not just in the USA but the major countries. I've seen Max play several times before this and he's a decent poker player and it's no big secret some play a lot more aggressive overall than others and Italians are some that play aggressively.
