    You really do need players like Hellmuth, Tony G and Daniel N to play. I don’t care if they win or lose, they bring excitement to the game. The constant trash talking. It just works for folks who watch.

  • Connman 8d
    Connman 8d 3 years ago +14

    12:50 Looked like a perfect spot for a check-raise from Barry. You've got a hand that has good to great equity but no showdown value and your opponent is likely barreling with air or betting a single pair. It is unlikely that a check-raise gets called here and even if it does you still have a great chance to hit your draw and you have the option to barrel your bricked draw on the river and make a believer out of someone. Calling here is just too passive of a play and not only does it make it difficult to extract value on made draws but it also eliminates bluffing options on the river.

    • Chris Groves
      Chris Groves Year ago

      While It’s a good spot for a check raise calling is certainly not a bad play since you have some equity no matter what and have great implied odds. Barry green stien is an excellent player. He is TAG from in position he just plays a little more passive out of position which is often the way to go.

    this concept is pretty cool or was pretty cool. but it wouldve been better if they did it to where the loose cannons played for a final table with other loose cannons and then had them play it out against each other.

      important to note, old Daniel. Nothing personal but I really can't stand watching him nowadays, all the fun and excitement is out and it seems like hes taking the game super serious. He is already one of the top live earners, I dont get why he seems so frustrated and unhappy

  • Dylan Harcey

    These people are okay but the first two loose cannons had tougher and more interesting opponents in my opinion.

    • Dylan Harcey
      Dylan Harcey 6 months ago

      Yeah, I would agree with those two in particular being solid opponents. I mean, they all are pretty good I just thought that the whole table overall has been more difficult for other cannons. Still less interesting that Hellmuth or Negreanu in my opinion.
      She still did well against some kf the best in the world so that says something.

    • TheSherlockHomez
