Ivey is about as cool as a gambler could ever be.

Doesn't give a [censored], wins effortlessly, doesn't cry when he loses. He really is "The Man."

That was a hell of a read he must've had on Howard.

[/ QUOTE ] did you watch the show? Ivey saying this is the worst call ever? not wanting to show the hand down? He obviously thought there was a very good chance he didnt have the best hand.

I don't think Ivey had any great read. He just felt obligated to call due to amount invested and pot odds. It was a crying call hoping Howard either had the flush draw or he had thoughts of challenging Jamie Gold's legacy as best bluffer ever.

Just watched the west coast feed. I think you're right. It was a crying call. Lederer's poker face was so bad that hand, and he was trying to talk Ivey into folding. Lederer knew Ivey was close to calling, but was giggling and trying to talk so non-chalantly, considering the money in the pot, I didn't think it should of been that hard a call.

Still a great call by the best. It amazes how much Phil Ivey intimidates his fellow world class players. It just seemed to me Lederer was intimidated that whole hand versus Ivey.

QFT

IMO he is like one of the few gamblers I look up too. Him and Patrick prolly the only 2 in the world.

Hellmuth's awesome. Ferguson is so bothersome; I would get furious with him at table.

SPOILER:





How can Ivey call with middle pair, no kicker against a nit who raised preflop, bet the flop and then 3-bet all-in over his raise?

[/ QUOTE ]

You talking about the last hand? I don't think HL is considered a NIT heads up. It isn't like he did that ten-handed!

Just click on the picture. Yesterday they had Friday's episodes listed as Thursday (so we got to watch the last episode before it aired. Nothing looks different today on the site (no Friday listing), so one of the episodes is missing.

That last hand was nuts. The blinds must have gone up twice while Ivey was making up his mind. That was a hell of a read he must've had on Howard.

Now that's funny.
