    You can't call someone a thief or liar in public without 100% proof.The moment it was known that he was wrong and caused a disturbance and calling someone a cheat he should of been removed from the game. The problem is the game organisers ignoring it.

      You need to be certain if you think someone didn’t ante. If you suspect cheating then strong suspicion should warrant an investigation. It’s like a hand I watched where an Asian guy went all in and the guy deciding to act said I’ll show you a card if you show me. The Asian guy said I might show you but he was bluffing and all in so he had no benefit from showing the guy debating his turn a card. He obviously is never going to show him a card and the guy waiting to act turns his cards over and then gets very upset that the all in refused to show any cards. He said, “I said I might show”. He didn’t speak English well and he was forced to show which made it an easy call as he sees the bluff. Was a disturbing decision by the floor man and absolutely gross from the accuser because once he saw the hand he knew that the guy would never have shown but he threw such a fit that they sided with him. Poker players can be the biggest children I’ve ever seen

      They literally showed the replay and he did ante So the accusation was totally wrong

      Aaron Smith 3 months ago

      I disagree about being removed but do believe he should have had to sit out 5 minutes and then if anything but an apology is said then he gets another penalty. To keep saying I don’t know for sure was prettty bad. I knew right when he said that he was wrong

    Friedman is wrong at so many levels even if he's right.
    - You never disrupt a hand
    - You report to the floorman

      @dopewars ZH Think about what you are saying. You are saying never accuse someone of cheating unless you are absolutely sure. This is how cheaters propser. You have to call it out and if you're wrong then you're wrong. Better safe than sorry. Better to be wrong and clear up the facts than let potential cheaters get away with cheating.

    • abysmalvoid
      abysmalvoid 9 months ago

      Of course you disrupt a hand if you think cheating just took place. The most wrong thing in this video, and it's not even close, is threatening serious physical violence because your feelings were hurt.

      I think when you threaten to batter someone because you don't like how a game of poker went, then you are the one making a fool of yourself. Difficult to top that. We should be praising Friedman for highlighting what he thought was a discrepancy.

    • John Reilly
      John Reilly Year ago +4

      Imagine what would of come of this if Friedman had said that to someone like Phil Hellmuth, Tony G., Mike Matusow, heaven forbid Doyle Brunson. Friedman wasn’t wrong in questioning Lissandro if he thought that he didn’t ante he was wrong in directly accusing Lissandro multiple times and not dealing directly right away with officials. It’s only when Lissandro after even politely telling him not to accuse him of robbing the pot again that when he finally told the kid he’d kick the shit out of him that Friedman panicked like a bitch. Guaranteed Lissandro would have taken this kid outside after day was done if he hadn’t stopped & kid knew it.

  • chody

    I'm not even a pro poker player, but the reaction at 1:57 is a big enough tell for me that I'd probably believe Lisandro believes he threw his ante. Dude looks genuinely hurt.

    To be quite honest, this is why I quit playing. It started to become a regular occurrence where a player at the table worked any angle just to upset another player. In the old days, they didn't put up with it. If you accused someone of stealing or cheating.....that's a problem right there man. That'd be considered the first swing.

      @Arran Vid Blinds are not antes... And Lissandro was on the button...

    • Arran Vid
      Arran Vid 9 months ago

      @Brooks In no-limits Texas Hold'em Poker, you have the big blind and the small blind. Both have to put their chips in before the game starts. The small blind puts half of the big blind. I don't know whether Lissandro was big blind or small blind, but he was one of those two therefore he was forced to put a certain amounts of chips in. He did put the right amount in, as shown by the camera, but the other player, Prahlad, accused Lissandro of not putting the chips in...which would be cheating. Prahlad was wrong.

    • Commenter
      Commenter Year ago +2

      @DMac740 the clue that it's needling is the way he kept it going. And going. If it was about the chip he would have made his comment and that would have been that. Repeating it thirty times didn't serve any legitimate purpose in relation to the accusation. But once he saw Lisandro reacting the way he did notice how he got quieter and calmer about it and how he structured his comments to keep at him every few moments with timed pauses. Then saying he didn't trust him. That he "knows how it is". Then how he told the floor that he was threatened, like an innocent child who couldn't understand why. His agenda is very clear. And it wasn't his place to do any of that and he knows it. He's not the ante police. AND he was wrong. There was no basis fire and of it. I think he knew he was making it up. But most of all, playing poker professionally, I see this kind of routine often enough to recognize it. His tone of voice was designed and intended to annoy the guy. And when he was told what was on the video he didn't apologize. He's just kept insinuating the guy was untrustworthy and that even if he hadn't done it this time it didn't really prove anything. He didn't say those words but it was in his tone. There are guys who do this kind of thing constantly in one way or another. Not this accusation specifically but the same attempt to upset someone, whatever it takes. There's no mistaking what this was if you see it often enough.

      @dezignateddriva Unfortunately some players get away with petty moves like "forgetting" to post ante or making short-changed splash calls for way too long Not because they are so slick or not being picked up on, but because of "etiquette". Cheating is not the worst breach of poker etiquette. Accusing someone of cheating is. It's the gravest of insults. Even a vague suggestion quickly escalates into a real situation. As this clip shows.
      So even if these moves get noticed many players will still be reluctant to point them out.

  • Septic Womb
    Septic Womb 4 months ago

    Friedman could easily have gone about this by just asking something vague like, “Is there an ante missing?” He could have requested a check without accusing anyone specific. Counting the pot before it was scooped would’ve shown the missing ante. Even though an ante was actually missing, if you’re not 100% you can’t accuse someone specifically or go at it so aggressively.

      It’s mind blowing how you can assume you know he’s doing this on purpose with absolutely no evidence.

      I believe it was just popularity and effenciency of the BB Ante, but I could also see this really reinforcing the push for BBA. I never liked regular antes: consolidated antes are SO much better, saves time and headaches.
