    This is getting ridiculous. This early in, and he's made 2 final tables. And he's that good looking. Life is rigged.

    Clearly spending any time picking a tie is illogical if you want to final table WSOP events.

    If you're running it on firefox that is the problem. Chrome is by and large the best browser now.

    Max winning the allin, dead on turn. Squarely in second place now. It's cool to watch something poker related while playing.

    Max is getting unlucky with the spots he's trying to pick. He 3bet Q2 over aces just now.

    so only some of us are famous?

    Not my place to criticize the master but Max seems to be playing a bit too loose, and it's hurting his stack.
  29. #29
    I think he needs to lose less chips and win some more

    Max in last place sadly. I don't understand how he can shove A9s in with 19BBs, I hope he's not frustrated that he's getting no hands whatsoever.

    double up

    Yeah, I mean, I don't get it it either, but I don't think there's much of a chance of that.

    Not the best call there by West, but good for Steinberg. Imo West was going on a read of tilt to make the call with KJs because now he's dead last.
  37. #37
    AJ < 66 on JT6r and out..
  38. #38
    And he's out . A set-up basically, Max AJ other guy 66, flop TPTK and set.
  39. #39
    Yah big setup hand for sure, no folding JT6 board with AJ, when so many draws can be raise/calling.

    GG Max!

    it was 6k/12k with a 2k ante 7 handed, so its essentially 11k/22k if there were no antes. I could just raise I think it's better to just jam. It was A9o btw
  42. #42
    Ok if you put it like that, it's 10BB and understandable. That's probably also why you were doing 48k (4BB) preflop raises, I wouldn't dare to do that out of fear of looking too weak.

    It sucked you ran so bad, but big congrats on the second FT at the WSOP

    Max - were you close to shoving the A8o that you 4x ep and Silverman 3b you LP with AK? There were so many spots railing that final table where in my head I was like "Wow I can see myself doing XYZ"... that spot I would have def been tempted to jam. I really think the ability to turn off any "non-believer" tendencies in tourneys is huge... which I need to work on. Esp given how tight the table was playing.

    Also some other spots where ppl were "pot controlling" hands.. but really not pot controlling, because they were just outright folding to one turn bet was also surprising to me. Spots I definitely would have called one or two bets after checking the flop.

    GG Max, that was awesome to watch. I agree with Stax. You playing and danny commentating was awesome.

    It was a genuinely tough spot but I had basically decided not to jam from the start but just wanted to think about it. It was one of my first 4x raises and I didn't think anyone was going to 3bet me light... yet. Especially Silverman who had clearly just decided to nit it up.

    The sizing postflop is less "pot controlling" and more "normal" for live tournaments. As you saw, I don't do that bullshit. I think I do pretty well.

    The commentator asked Danny why you tend to open larger than most. Danny really only touched on the fact that by doing so you feel you are more likely to get a HU pot, rather than a multi-way pot. What other reasons do you have for opening larger than most in the later stages of a tournament?

    To me it seems like you were playing looser than most, and it just seems logical that the wider your range, the smaller your sizing should typically be. Were you just looking to create extra dead money that you could pick up with your postflop edge?

    Unlucky Max, good run and was great fun watching you playing and listening to the commentary

    Really enjoyed watching this.

    How does the 30min. delay commentary with holecards revealed affect your play? ie. if or when you know villain is say 3-betting wide & he now knows you know, etc. etc.

    A bit off-topic but I also really enjoyed the HU with Bax taking it down (even if the gutters kept coming in).... especially liked that raise on the river with 86 vs Q7.

    Just let me know if you are looking for a protégé Max. I figure a new tie per hour should be an acceptable rate. If you give enough lessons you might earn enough ties to always have a new one at the final table.

    It's actually not even close, super +EV shove. The math can be surprising to a cash game player.

    Can you explain what the math is to make this +EV?
