Reichenstein actually made such a bad call. On the flop you see a two pair. Would you bet 25% on a two pair? Even so on the river there was such a huge chance that malec paired the pair 8s on the turn and river and a card on the flop with his cards to get a full house. Did he REALLY think that Malec thinks "OH IM GONNA BLUFF ALL IN FOR 25 MILLION CHIPS AND THE TITLE WHEN THERE IS A STRAIGHT AND FULL HOUSE CHANCE ON THE TABLE." 1 of the worst plays of 2016 from reichenstein.
that bluff was so good and bad at the same time - he didnt knew if the opponent got nuts he couldnt fold and he also thought about the all in way too long, but then he talked himself out of the pot perfectly (but very risky)
I am glad the 6 came off too, the guy was a douche. But I do have a genuine question.. is it always slow rolling when you have Kings? Aces I'll grant you, no reason to think about it, but KK ? Surely there is a right to at least think about it for a second..
PokerStars is a joke, increasing the rake, five minute poker, Zoom poker, removing all the skill from tournaments, shortening blind levels from 15 m to 10m. Soon it won't even be a possible to profit anymore. not to mention Shady random generators that can be affected short-term by consciousness
I didn't like Malec's behaviour at first, it reeked of strength, but he didn't change it when Reichenstein told him that he was thinking about folding which was clever. After that, Reichenstein expected Malec to change his attitude with a big hand to make Reichenstein change his mind. By continuing with his antics, Malec made it look like he was happy with the impression he was giving.
It would give him full house with three A's and two 10's. That other dude wouldve gotten full house with three 10's and only two A's. So rajapakse would've had a better full house w 3 A's instead of only 2 like that other dude
Regarding the number 2 hand, that girl deserved the 6. It's not that I'm defending her because she's a girl, but slowroll like that deserves to be punished, Highly unethical and repulsive move by that beefy motherfucker.
