Epic night of poker, 12 hours at the final table. Crazy how Merson kept his composure for so long.

Can see balsiger being big in the next few years, and 3.8 mill is a good starting block

Yeah crazy shit.. Started watching at midday, left for work at 2, got home 11:30 and couldn't believe it was still going.

Merson was cool as a cucumber. Didn't see him make a bad play all final table.

Finally catching up on the final table play...curious on peoples thoughts on Koroknai's exit...the 5 bet ship of 80BBs with KQos into Merson who snapped it off (for all but 2million/4BBs of his stack) with AK.

Blow up by Koroknai?
Loose call by Merson?

Initially I thought it was a pretty ugly move, but looking back at how inactive Andras was, his image was super fucking tight, and I actually think that Merson calling that size bet with only AK, for more or less his whole stack is pretty fucking ugly...he must have had some solid read on Andras as what else could you possible be thinking you're ahead of? It repped such a monster hand, so what, you're hoping it's only JJ or QQ and it's a flip? You put him squarely on AK and think it's a chop? Either of those thought processes aren't exactly attractive to call your whole stack off with.

Wonder what it was that let Merson know he was so dominatingly ahead to snap it off so quickly? To me, the flow of play and Andras's image screamed that AKos was crushed

The later in the tournament is...the value of Ak and Aq go up....Aces-queens pairs are just super rare. Play them like aces as they have way to much flop equity too waste at a late stage of a tournament. Early stages...yes definitely not a snap call but final table....ship sip ship

Yeah, deft was the right call and a good read to snap-call it so quick, just mulling it over...Andras was hard out trying to rep KK or AA, so kudos to Merson for calling it...did feel a little thin though, like a flip was the absolute best case scenario you're hoping for

Up to the 11th hour of play now...madness they're still 3 handed...Balsiger finally gets huge double up to chip lead, 2 hands later all the chips go back to Silvia as he luckboxes 2 pair and a straight and it's all back to square one...so epic!

So calling AK for 76 BBs in the main event is "value goes up later in the tournament?" .... I think you are referring to the later stages of the APL Sunday $50 high roller when they have 15 min blinds going up exponentially. The call with AK in just about any spot for 76BBs is uber bad. Just as the shove with KQ is in that spot no matter what your image is. But I hate the call more. NOt in that spot, not in the main event. can pick a better spot than that.

meh..with peoples ranges so wide in today's modern game your value range needs to increase to include AQ suited+ otherwise you'll get run over. It was obv based on read as well....i doubt he would have "snap" called against a Steve Gee 6 bet but against Korok who has shown to be spewy, its a pretty easy call. I believe Korok thinks he was shoving for value and not as a bluff and Merson soul read all of that

And Merson is a Supernova Elite cash game player and not a spewy tourney player like Heinz or Cada so it all adds up to him knowing exactly where he was at all times....probabaly out him on something along the range of Ace 10o etc

FT software plays nicer imo

And I don’t know what it is, perhaps it is just shitty luck/variance, feels well beyond just that though...I used to be quite profitable on FT, yet cannot for the fucking life of me get anything happening on Stars, the Fish Play VS Reward ratio is just atrocious

AIOF of 8 3 2 with A8 vs K8...binks the turn
AIOF of 9 4 J with KK vs A9...binks the river
AIOF with flopped straight...blinks flush on the turn

So consistently losing the hands I should be winning a good 70% of the time, it's beyond a fucking joke...and it's always to fucking fish morons with 35 percentile ranks, no ROI, ITM 6% of the time if they're lucky...3 hands later they've donked them off to someone else and are busto...in the fucking eye, Pokerstars, right in the fucking eye!

FT just need to bring out a mobile app and Stars can then get the fuck out, will never play on that piece of shit site again

Also profitable live last 5 out of 6 outings at Crown, but on Stars? Nope, not on your fucking nelly does anything that should hold, actually hold...the amount of times in the last month alone AK has been out-binked by AQ/AJ et al is fucking ridiculous!

Played in the Aria 1pm $125 tournament last week. Sitting just outside the Ivey room next to Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey and Jean-Robert Bellande

120 starters, 10,000 starting stack and 30 minute blinds.

16 players left with top 11 in the money, called a 15BB shove (UTG) with pocket 6s from the BB. He flips over KQ and hits the K on the flop.

Next hand was the SB and called all in. Would have made the final table with a decent stack if my 6s had held up.

Dont like the 66 call...especially that close o the money..especially as shover was UTG. 99+ ATs+, Ajo+ seems about right. Antes?

If shover was SB that 66 is bottom of value range. Unlucky either way adn congrats on the deep run

Hadn't seen this, totally agreed...one thing to shove 15bbs with 66, but calling is super weak completely praying for them to be holding two overs and it's a flip...this call and out next hand means you had at least 20bbs, right? Why call off so much of your stack with 66 from an UTG shove there? Terribad, did you really think A5 or lower was a possible part of his range?

Unlucky the flip didn't hold, would have put you in a great spot, but still don't think it was a good call

1. He was actually in middle position
2. MP with 15bbs is a shove with any two cards
3. I'll take a 54/46 "flip" all day long if it means guaranteed top 3 position

I never miss a chance at getting some good value. The bubble is the perfect chance to extract value, everyone sits back getting eaten up by the blinds. I made what turned out to be a good mathematical play, I've done it before and will do it again. Yes its not perfect and it will mean plenty of bubbles but I think my 22% ITM record (10/20 table tourneys) speaks for itself.

I never miss a chance at getting some good value. The bubble is the perfect chance to extract value, everyone sits back getting eaten up by the blinds. I made what turned out to be a good mathematical play, I've done it before and will do it again. Yes its not perfect and it will mean plenty of bubbles but I think my 22% ITM record (10/20 table tourneys) speaks for itself.

actually yea your right...villain would have to be shoving 14%+ which is reaonable (33+,A4s+,A8o+,KJs+) for 66 to be profitable. Good call!!!

My recall of villain's position was a bit off cause I skipped breakfast and lunch, so it was 24 hours since my last meal and was running on red bulls and root beer!

Don't necessarily agree that 15bb's from MP is a shove with "any two" cards...you still have to have a hand with good all in equity unless you're a complete maniac, saying any two is a bit wide...you already had chips in as the BB so OK I guess, but it's pretty marginal imo..if you're sitting on 25+bbs you've got plenty of time to find a better spot than to call off 75% of your stack praying for a flip...you could so easily be an 80% dawg

Could have just as easily had A2, A3, A4, A5, 44 or 55. $3K first prize was far too tempting than creeping in with a min cash.

Final table of an NPL deep stack event a few years ago. MP pushes with about the same, I think for 30 seconds in the BB. Then call with my 44. She flips over A2 and I double up and take out 3rd place.

Seriously, only complete donks shove A5- for 15BBs from MP, was he a complete donk? Sure, perhaps from CO/Button of blind on blind, but MP on a full table A5- shoving is awful...could have easily been 77+ pair and you're crushed and crippled...

I would fold... It's a big call to make with 9's and you'll be crippled if you lose out.
I'm feeling like he's got a big pocket pair or possible AK with that shove.

You got enough stack to find something better.

Something better? he's committed his whole stack and we've got an over pair!

You gotta play it like you know you're gonna win. If you think he might have A high you need to call, you can't fold your way to victory.

I play K high flush exactly the same as A high, middle set same as top set. If you get knocked out by that 0.5% hand so be it.

One more guess and I'll post the result.

It's blind on blind in an un-raisd pot, zero chance he has either a big pocket pair or AK...sure, he's in the blinds so playing post-flop OOP, but no one fails to raise AK or 1010+ there.

It's a damn ugly spot, he could be a bit donky and trying to protect his 7X, but I think it's highly likely you're up against 2 pair...outside chance he's got a low set or he's got 56 for the straight and has played it awfully and will miss value when you fold

Call if the guys stats are awful and he loses lots of money as he's got 7X and thinks top pair is the nuts...if he's got good stats and makes money, you're behind, fold (or he's bluffing you with squat)

Nup, slammed it in. Only fear was a very very unlikely 56.

Seems like the future of online poker in Australia doesn't look too good if Abbott wins the election according to this article. You wouldn't think it would be a big priority for the government, though.

Lol at limping 99 pre..pretty bad..99 is a premium..most of the time its a 3/4 betting hand. Unless your plan was to trap in a weird way? If so then follow up on your plan and overcall. Villain would be pretty happy to pile it in with A7 here considering how you underepped your hand

As played that is the easiest call ever. +1 to raising preflop though.

Why raise? Only two limpers so the field is nicely thinned out and I can see a free flop, would have definitely raised if there were 3+ limpers.

Who is four betting with 99s? Best case scenario you're in a race. The object of good poker is to get it all in ahead everytime, and not just 52:48 but 70:30 ahead.

Pocket nines is a good hand but it’s still a speculative hand. A raise might win a small pot however limping will win the really big pots that you need to win tournaments. Flop a set and take down the whole stack of Mr top pair top kicker.
