Triton SHR Series cash game were happening latetly and there were some massive pots. Buy-in to the game was KRW 1,000,000,000 (around 900,000$), and the blinds 3,000,000/6,000,000/6,000,000 (2,700$/5,400$/7,100$). Among the participants we have got players like Tom Dwan, Paul Phua, Mikita Badziakouski and Sam Greenwood. After few big pots what happened was the second biggest televised pot in the history of poker.

Now we are on to the biggest hand that took place in the whole series.
Paul Phua in the UTG decided to straddle for KRW 12,000,000 KRW and surprisingly he got AA. Dominik Nitsche joined in with KQ in the cutoff and he raised for 30,000,000. Tom Dwan was in the big blind with AQ and he re-raised to 120,000,000. Paul Phua raised yet again to 320,000,000. Dominik Nitsche folded and Tom Dwan analyzed the situation for a few minutes before announcing all-in for KRW 1,288,000,000. Paul Phua was waiting exactly for that and called. The pot was KRW 2,615,000,000 that is $2,353,500! Durrrr quit the table straight after the hand was over.

Watch the hand here:


It's worth adding that this was the second biggest pot in the history of televised pokera. Previous record was in May this year at Triton SHRS in Montenegro. The buy-in for that game was 1,000,000 euro. Record pot was €2,090,000, that is about $2,469,335.

With the straddle its like a less than 100bb stack 5bet shove with AQo which isn't automatic but is something you have to do sometimes. Also the 4bettor is the one who posted the straddle, and is certainly a player who is capable of goofy stuff and doesn't care about money. However from what I've seen he isn't particularly aggressive. Also the timing seemed bad to shove here. Paul bet Tom off of a couple other pots and was already up huge for the session. He doesn't seem like the bullying type and will mainly make huge moves when he's stuck or bored.

Boring
These games lost their glamour when it's common knowledge these guys play bigger when cameras ain't rolling

It's like 100 bigs deep with extra dead money

trying to play optimally against Paul Phua would be a big mistake

hes just doing so poorly with AQo. Esp vs someone who seems like the type of fish to overcall 3bets instead of 4betting.

Not really It's a marginal fold in Snowie in terms of EV
And it jams hands like A2-A6s at some frequency when I put similar stack sizes in and ante instead of the extra blinds (same dead money in the pot) And Snowie's a nit usually hah

This is a BvB spot guys you have to remember

And CO ranges will be pretty much as wide as normal CO
Yes he has more people behind him but you have them OOP on you and a lot of dead money, I open the same range pretty much on straddle tables if not wider in late position
and he just 2.5Xed on CO ranges will be wide here

As I said
Boring nothing to see here
I miss the times of HSP when everyone was super deep
Regs played with their own money for TV (not sure, but I assume staking and action sharing wasn't as widespread)
And it was the biggest game by far you knew about
(+Gabe Kaplan baby! Way better than has beens like Nanonoko commenting)

I haven't even been watching these, probably won't even though they are on youtube
Think one time Dwan went into the booth was the exception

real question is whose money it was

It seems to be not very profitable in the long run to play those kind of hands. - Gus Hansen

I play at regular mortal stakes, it’s just from what I’ve seen watching all the Triton cash games. There’s a fair amount of insane over-aggro play, and I’ve seen Paul make that sort of play before but the timing just didn’t seem right for it here. Obviously I can see that he has AA though.

They're not boring at all, especially with Antonius and Dwan playing

if it was like SB just 5bet jamming AQo over a cold 4bet from BB, that's seen as bad by pio/monker. Sure, low suited aces are a different story and make popular 5bet bluff hands in pio. i don't really understand snowies results. They seem to differ from pio/monker esp in early position 3b/4b spots.

Still -EV there but by like 3big blinds (300bb/100) it says
just sayin that that ev gap can be bridged if you think the guy's too loose
