1. This was just a $4 180 man final table but could anyone explain this play. I tend to get irritated on some calls I get, but I dont understand this at all. Makes him chip leader though. Seriously, if there is something I do not understand please explain Candacemans action

  6. sometimes u just "feel it coming"

    or maybe he had good read on dealer?

    or he has one of those sweet, yet rare, card predicting softwares

  7. Yeah but its the final table. Im seriously wondering what the deal was, he must have some ability to make it that far. If doing nothing but playing good cards. I have had quite a lot of my semibluffs called when people have no pair or draw, when the should have folded on the flop. It happens enough and I lose enough to wonder if I dont recognize something. Does he have enough of a read to know the guy was bluffing and was willing to race with one card left? was it an aww hell call because he invested so many chips?

    I didnt really think anyone would have an answer, it just blows my mind though.

  8. Bdubs.You forgot to give him the "It was suited" out to start the hand.

  9. who is truly the donk here. I would say A6. What was the A6 thinking he was going to win with this hand. The other guy had suited connectors and A6 re-raised with a 774 board with no pair when the other bettor could have had a 3rd 7. so who is really the donk in this instance. But the turn brought him an inside straight draw, which if it hits would have busted A6 anyways so what's the difference.

  10. This one is easy. I've seen it a hundred times. The guys gets up to use the bathroom and the cat walks on the keyboard. Simple enough.

  11. WEll the A 6 is making a play at least the other guy is calling with nothing and no real draw. But whatever.
