SPOILER WARNING – each season of High Stakes Poker offers us with a hand that will probably be talked about for years and that is the newest.
If you aren’t watching the newest season of High Stakes Poker on PokerGO, the present’s trailer promised a hand for the ages and this may need been it.
With stakes at $200/$400, Phil raises from early place to $1,100 with Q T and is known as by James Bord holding 2 2 and Polk on the Button with T 7, the blinds fold.
The flop is J 9 8 giving Polk the 2nd nut straight and Hellmuth the nut straight.
Bord bets $2,000 into the $12,900 pot, Polk raises to $7,000 and Hellmuth rapidly goes all-in for $97,200. Bord folds.
No insta name from Polk and he clearly knew he was in a nasty spot the second Hellmuth put his chips within the center. In his personal phrases “I’m either dead or you have a ton of equity against me” signalling that Polk felt Hellmuth had the nuts, or at the least a set/huge flush draw that would outdraw him.
The different gamers on the desk began making aspect bets on who had one of the best hand and Polk even confirmed his hand earlier than folding to try to elicit some form of response from Phil. But after about 4 minutes Polk did certainly fold the hand in what might have been one of the best laydown within the present’s historical past.
