Sickest River Play Ever
I was told this hand is on 2+2 but I couldn't find it. Forgive me if I get one or two details wrong but the river is the most important part and its siiiiiiiiiiiiiik
I am not allowed to reveal the hero or villain. Neither is me. Both are very good online high stakes pro's, one of them extremely well known.
5 handed 25/50. Villain raises to 175, hero calls in position with 65hh
Flop Q 9 5 two diamonds. villain bets $425, hero calls.
turn 2s, villain bets $975, hero calls.
river Ad, villain bets $2650, hero goes all in for $4040 total, villain folds (!!)
Hero's explanation was that by shoving the river instead of calling, he forces out the very bottom of villains calling range for that shove. so for instance he would fold slightly better hands to his pair of 5's, or so the theory goes.
i think this is a highly interesting hand and i'd be interested to hear what the leggopoker gurus have to say about it
