    This is so gangsta

    Hand #48

    Thomas Cannuli opens the button to 400,000, and Max Steinberg defends his big blind. The flop is 432, and both players check. The turn is the J, and Steinberg leads for 325,000. Cannuli raises to 1,250,000. Steinberg reraises to 3,800,000, and Cannuli tanks for several minutes, then folds. Steinberg shows T9.

    Max Steinberg - 11,870,000 (74 bb)
    Thomas Cannuli - 11,390,000 (72 bb)

    IDK if a tell was needed.

    Steinberg limped UTG, C-bet a flop that smacks a calling range... or a UTG limping range.

    The final board was straight city.

    The only reason to bet on the end is if Steinberg had 2-pair. I don't think he's getting value from anything else.

    How much of Steinberg's range is 2-pair OTR, vs other straights and his folding range?

    I kinda think it was Steinberg's value to lose OTR. He had the nuts. He's in the same boat to get value from 2-pair hands, maybe, but he's def getting called by all the straights.

    Not sure what Max's UTG limping range is, though I know he tends to open limp more than most..I assume hands that don't want to be 3-bet along with some monsters.

    behind you with an axe
    At a live game last night someone whipped out a phone and was commenting on how the game was going. I didn't even know max was in it but it was pretty cool hearing some random mention him and how well he was doing and I'm like max? I know that guy! (kinda, in an Internet way) which was pretty cool.

    GTFI. Great job.

    Hopefully that chip leader transfers his ridiculous run good to Max in November. Really looking forward to watching.

    congrats max you deserve it. Great job on the stream this year also. 5x open at the ME FT one time?

    Ah...glad to hear from you. I figured you were out of poker or else you would have been one of the big coaches/RIO instructors or something by now.

    Sick! Congrats dude. I saw something about a check for $1mm, and figured you had bubbled the FT. I guess since every Nov9'er is guaranteed at least a million, they just cut everyone a check?

    I think they pay everyone the prize for 9th place.

    First eliminated in November doesn't get any more. Everyone else gets whatever is owed, accordingly.

    I get that everyone wanted Negreanu to make the final table, but I don't understand the sentiment that this November 9 will be worse than previous years. Like, if you're interested in poker, this is a pretty cool final table.

    Max is a legit BOSS and a bracelet winner. Also, the fact that he got his entry via DraftKings is probably great for poker. I second the notion that it's awesome that he wore a suit at the table. Maybe that'll help him run like Zinno.

    McKeehen is a total pro and a great player, for him to get through another 6k+ field at the WSOP is pretty awesome.

    anyway, CAN'T WAIT.

    p.s. Negreanu donked up his bustout hand, it's a pretty clear shove pre vs. someone opening like 90% of hands.

    Agreed with the suit comment. Look like a boss, play like a boss. I like the classy look.

    Soo....if you took the 10 worst-played hands over the past 3 episodes of the ESPN coverage, I'd guess that Daniel Negreanu had about 7 of them.

    Ditto and can add the following:

    Played beer pong with him

    Knocked him out of a private FTR tournament in Vegas. Disclaimer, it might have been Danny and whichever it was they were distracted because they had to go to the airport to pick up the girlfriend.

    Had him correctly peg my hand once in another tournament in Vegas.

    I dunno, Neuville (the old dude) made some pretty horrendous calls when he got a ton of chips.

    Is there a stream anywhere online? I can't find one.

    Following the ESPN text is kinda junk.
