  1. I hate seeing people slow play and “trap” aces and kings you have a one pair holding what are you doing

    1. I’m only going to be checking back aces if I know my opponent tends to play a wider range of hands that can easily crack aces. but as soon as that turn card comes on I’m leading out with a bet probably 2x pot to try and really deny equity from a flush draw because of how vunerable aces become in that spot.

    2. Better to get your money in early when you know youโ€™re ahead. If they fold they fold but you win the pot and you wonโ€™t go broke

    1. tbf I think the “only” (but still crucial) mistake during the hand was the check on the turn.

    2. I agree but it probably worked out that he lost the minimum. I doubt Kaverman is going to fold on the flop and then definitely not on the turn.

    3. @@RANDOMAUSSCHAFFHAUSNchecking on the turn in this case actually was ok. Lost him the least amount possible. Usually though in that spot checking is the worst play.

    4. I was planning to say the same but you beat me to it! AA is too weak to slow play. make them pay to draw

  2. I know he went home that day thinking all night โ€œwhy would I not be on any street after the flop with acesโ€ฆโ€

  3. Pretty sure he actually lost minimum this hand. ATs never folding pre and probably mandatory to take one off on flop with over and backdoor str8/flush draws. If they were both big stacks depending on where it is in tourney this can kinda make sense

    1. I was also thinking
      Still a bad play overall, but maybe he has some rule to just call the aces and fold if any substantoil pressure is applied.
      People always being like “fish! fish!”, but he is the one playing some high roller torunament as a big stack while we comment his play on one particular hand that we have no idea about the reasoning behind ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. That’s why we call Fish ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Get pocket aces but always check?? Big Fish ๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. When “Memories” hit my ears for the very first time it brought tears to my eyes. That one resonates with me on soo many levels. I cannot believe I just found these guys.. but I’m beyond greatful that I did! Thank you TM โฃ๏ธ

  6. The possible worst thing you could ever do with a big stack and the best starting

  7. These are the two big stacks remaining and there’s no reason to bloat the pot. Kaverman can three-bet pre-flop, but against the other big stack and being out of position, the move looks super-strong and Watson will nearly always fold.

    At an earlier stage, this hand plays very differently, but ICM considerations dictate a safer play.

  8. Just fold your aces pre flop ๐Ÿ˜‚ if you gonna check every street
