He has the 3rd nuts... in a final table where first is over $200,000.

Even though most people would raise or ship river the flat isn't TERRIBLE... hes just being cautious but hey... you know there IS a slight possibility he has j8d or 99 and we've seen crazier shit happen ;)

So... Mitspucke starts with 57bb? and raises just over 2xbb. Dollysz with 43bb? as the big blind calls the extra blind and a bit in a typical defend.

Dollysz misses the flop and checks against the mid position raiser to see if they follow through, thinking they may be ahead if they hit a K or Q later on.

Mitspucke flops a monster and wants to allow Dollysz to improve a bit for more value and so checks behind.

With the third diamond arriving, Dollysz stabs with less than 50% of the pot as if to say, 'maybe I didn't hit a flush or even a straight, but you need to pay to play'

Mitspucke hopes that Dollysz has hit the straight or the flush but wants to see if they can get a bit more into the pot and so simply calls, which can also be seen as a float with a similar hand to that of Dollysz.

With the river bricking, it looks like Dollysz thought they could represent a straight or a flush and so made a 'please call me' bet of about 33% of the pot. It also leaves Dollysz with a reasonable stack left to play with and looks relatively strong.

Mitspucke obviously knows they are ahead of the straight and flush, but may have been worried about the two hands that beat him, unlikely as they may be. And if Mitspucke had actually raised for value on the river, what would they do if Dollysz came back over the top? It is the Sunday Million after all and there is a hell of a lot of money at stake. So the simple call, while looking a little gutless, is the safer bet just in case Dollysz got luckier and also eliminates any bluffing opportunity that the raise opens the door on.

I think that they both played the hand quite well to be honest. Granted I can't afford to be playing tourneys like that yet, but I would imagine that level of thinking to be required of anyone who hope to be successful by maximising the good spots and minimising the potential bad spots that sneak up on us all.

+1, i just said this in not so many words

Jesus why do people have to shove the fuck out all the time, poker is a gentlemans game and as such playing like one brings rewards - and PS always has these set up hands going all the time, so i think the hand played well

and bazeman - sod off

i wonder how many sunday million tables you guys have sat at......he increased his stack by 50% and the other guy lost 33% of his

on any other table where there is not so much at risk i would agree a value bet on the river is the norm, but here the hand played fine, you have no idea what he was putting the other guy on, could easily have been thinking 99 or j8d's - why not? see it all the time online

looking at these one off hands in isolation is so tilting, makes no sense talking about it really

So what im getting from some of the responses is dont raise the river because this is a bigger buy-in tournament and villain MIGHT have J8dd or 99 WTF??! If youre not raising the river here dont even register for this tournament. In fact, dont register for any tourney. Youre just throwing away money.

No, the analysis is wrong. Not raising the river is really bad. There's so much value to be had from straights, flushes, worse boats, trips, etc.

You are looking at the hand in isolation. And in that instance, yes the river should be bet for value. Pretty much a no brainer with no pressure. However, this player was clearly out of their depth and pressured with the money jumps of the Sunday Million final table and seems to be aware of their limitations. Watching the replay, you can almost see Mitspucke squirm when making decisions.

I'd like to know what people think of Mitspucke's play on hand ten when they held 99 on a board of 76x6 and made a sensible fold.

lol

It is a case of seeing both the forest and the trees. I don't agree with the play made, but I can understand why he did it. And I daresay quite a few people without that fancy $1m badge could out think themselves in a similar way should they make that particular final table.
