    Oh noooooo.

    This is so extremely brutal given how close the players at the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event are to the end.

    Timothy Su will start Friday’s action third in chip count with 34,350,000 thanks to this stunner of a win over Sam Greenwood, who finished in 45th.

    The video below starts at the flop — Greenwood has pocket Aces and Su has 10-9 offsuit. The flop is Jack-Queen-4, giving Su two ways to get a straight with either a King or an 8.

    Greenwood bets 1.8 million of his 15M-plus chips and Su calls. The turn is another Jack and Greenwood bets 3.5M this time. I would assume he bet pre-flop, so Su might know he has pocket Aces by this point. But he shoves all in anyway, knowing he has over 29 million in chips, a risky but smart move given his stack.

    Brutal. Just so very brutal. Su hits his straight with a King and Greenwood goes home.

    Guess what shows up on the river? Watch below:

    AA is a painful hand to work
    GOLD is the Money of the KINGS, SILVER is the Money of the GENTLEMEN, BARTER is the Money of the PEASANTS, but DEBT is the Money of the SLAVES!!!

    The hand was 10, 9 off suit. Not suited. How’s that change the hand? Was your simulation ran suited?

    So you would fold in that situation?

    No second thoughts?

    AA holds up 31% of the time if all players remain in a 10 handed game

    True. I haven’t watched the hand, Will in a second. But I make people pay to look at my bullets. If they pay the premium and I lose, I can live with that. Money was in at the right time and I was “unlucky” like some will say.

    I don’t play for cheap looks when I have quality ass. Lol

    Hahahaha so? All 10 players stay in? All the way to the river?
    Nothing even close would ever happen.
    Fake stat.
    I'm actually very surprised it's that high.

    The bottom line is this guy can at least sleep at night cause he didn't try to get cute with it.
    He did what he was supposed to do, made the guy pay to draw, got his money in good, and shit happens.
    Draws do get there sometimes.

    That was brutal. When I get AA I. Super aggressive for the most part. Easier saying he did this and that. But god damn, it was brutal. One thing I’m learning in this game is bad beats can and will happen........a lot. Lol

    I’m still learning but love this game. We always remember the suck outs. I need to log my live play some how.

    So? Just thought it was interesting stat. No need to be a cock. Play with a bunch of nits all the time and it’s irrelevant of course, but I usually play in loose home games where half of the river stragglers are on a draw

    Well it came on the heels of your claim that you lose more money than you win with AA.
    So it seemed like you were using it as some kind of supporting evidence.
    Given your propensity to twist and misrepresent "facts" to bolster your positions, you can see how I might draw that conclusion.

    No need to be a cock? You’re a cock on here 100% of the time. Are you the old Worldnumberone? It something like that.
