    "he may not know what running it twice means but if Vanessa asks, it's bad"
    that's pure comedic gold. RIP Norm.

    The Mercier bluff was actually a great hand all in all. Gabe said it best. A great bluff and an even greater hero call.

      @LA Raine Jason played the hand too strong so it looked like a bluff to Ivey,everything about it looked like he just was trying to force the hand to be over,even the pre flop play looked like a squeeze and his Mannerisms didn't help either,a guy like ivey has a mind that works like a computer and analyses all these things because he's a monster

      @MrRondonmon of course it adds up, the pot is 212k if he flat calls, with 100k behind. if he actually had AA how is he going to fold the turn to an all in bet on any card? the jam is standard, he is not slowing down lol yeah maybe if they both had 700k stacks.

      My favorite Doyle quote was when Botez asked him on PAD: Doyle, if someone calls you a nit, is that bad? "I wouldn't know, I've never been called one."

    • antzooma

      he started the hand with 390-400k and won a pot of 818k, your calculation seems to be wrong

    • Sean Kiesling

      @LION TAMER no, he saw under Doyle's name where it said "all-in 340,000" that's how much he had left by the river

      LION TAMER Year ago

      @Sean Kiesling there was probably a side bet he collected on, because he's Doyle Brunson

    • Sean Kiesling

    The all-in move by Vanessa Selbst was one of the worst moves I've seen. Ruffin's eagerness gave away that he had a strong hand, but she still didn't lay down her hand. Unbelievable.

    • Mitjitsu
      Mitjitsu 18 days ago

      @evadecaptcha Yes, when you make plays like that you never want to be drawing dead should your opponent call. A hand like A4s would make a lot more sense to do it with. However, what made it really bad was that there was still another player left to act.

    • Mitjitsu
      Mitjitsu 18 days ago

      Boneta's one was a lot worse. As there was still another player left to act. Also, there's a very high likelihood he's up against KK/AA, and the board is too connected for any for these hands to consider folding. It the board was something like 248 then you could rep a set more credibly.

      She’s the worst player EVER

    • William Patterson
      William Patterson Month ago

      Yeah she let all the hands in with just a call and overplayed it after the flop. How eager he was to raise had to get her to thinking what would he do that with. He’s not doing that with A9 and besides JJ and 1010 that’s all she really beats there besides a flush draw. Don’t think he raises with that either but it is easier to breakdown a hand than playing live as well. From her point QQ was hidden well and he may have been overplaying pair and draw.

    Recently got some big interest in poker and I'd always known that Norm was a big gambler, but man, hearing him commentate some poker games is awesome. Genuinely great to hear his voice here

    • Pez
      Pez 16 days ago

      Unfortunately they had him on a such a tight leash though, he was so safe and toeing the line, that it ended up making it hard to listen to by the end. It was Norm's voice, but it really wasn't Norm at all. It was more like someone reading a cookie-cutter script in a Norm impression.
      They had a such a goldmine fall into their hands and they completely wasted the opportunity by neutering him like they did. I honestly don't know why they even went to Norm in the first place if they were not going to allow him to be even slightly himself.
      The commentary went downhill rapidly when they split the Gabe/AJ dynamic and, unfortunately, it kills me to say it, but it went even further downhill when they brought in Norm to do it. He honestly could have saved the entire show if they just let him be Norm. Instead, it died immediately after.

      I don't even think Phil's plays were that bad. He was just up against a bigger flush whenever he had a flush. Seems more like bad luck than poor play.

      @Paul Anthony , welp...could not have said it any better. Its the reason why Hellmuth usually has the lowest buy-ins and stacks in High Stakes cash games. While its the majority of his backers monies, Phil's bankroll is rarely not even close to 50% of his stack. I do give Hellmuth credit, he does know how to sponsor himself and "over" promote his poker skills. But usually in big High stakes cash games, he is the fish.

      I think he thought Chan had TT or something and he had 2 overs. Limping AA after multiple limpers is so old school and trappy it's almost impossible to imagine for a lot of people.

    • Clyde Rembrandt
      Clyde Rembrandt 6 months ago

      That's not always a set. Could be a pair with a straight draw, possibly a straight draw without a pair, an overpair to the flop, or a total bluff. Johnny is well ahead of the range of hands that could be betting like that.

      The funny thing is that laak hand was close to face up. Flat's and see the pot odds to flat smiling knew he was putting 21k just to flop a set. In that spot 3's or 2's doesn't change nothing and could be a monster pot for Laak.

    • Jonny Hicks
      Jonny Hicks Year ago +4

      @AcesHunteRRR yeah Chan played this like a true pro. Flatting the original raise was risky but I guess his instincts told him Negreanue would squeeze BB a bunch and he's good enough to fold his hand if the board comes sketchy and players start piling money in the middle. Also if he hits a set no one will ever put him on AA so credit to Chan for setting this up

    I remember the Hellmuth Ivey hand from years back. Hellmuth was on massive tilt from the hands before. I think he was down $50k or something after 3 hands with AJ or better. No way anyone gets away from a Jack high flush draw and open ended straight draw on that board, in that kind of mood, after raising pre-flop.
    The Rolex hand is a hilarious classic. Vintage Chan. I feel Doug Polk could have mustered a fold against Ruffin though.

      James Walker 3 months ago

      It had nothing to do with being generous. Chan didn't want the variance risk of Boneta getting lucky on him. Then after offering to go twice he realized that if he just went 3 times, he could pretty much bank a 90k profit minimum everytime, as Boneta will never get 2/3. He'll still usually win it all, but this way he guarantees himself a big profit on the hand.

      Being overly aggressive jump started her success, and eventually caused her to crash as well.
      Being too aggressive rarely works out, in the long run.

      @Unad Euabreese trust your read? Chan was shouting AA from the rooftops in an era where people would still limp/3bet AA. If chan isn't calling without a set, he'd never be able to defend vs a single shove on that flop.

    Big mistake by Vanessa. You don't go all-in on a player that insta-re-raised you out of turn. Like Norm said, that's a red flag! You're opponent likely has you beat... and in that situation, my guess would be by a set or two pair.

      Agree with Mercier point. He’s never going to be 3-betting that flop with overpairs so doing so with a bluff wasn’t optimal.
      That being said, the Vanessa play was horrible. I’m not really in favour of ‘live reads’ generally, but the guy is an old man acting out of turn, looking nervous and 3-bet min-raising a flop. He just never doesn’t have a set lmao

    • Joel

      @One Day At a Time I don't even understand how he acted out of turn. If Antonio had checked originally and Ruffin bet then I'd understand him not knowing Antonio was in the hand. But he literally called a bet from Antonio. Did he forget how his $17k got in the middle in the first place? lmao
