I do not think is normal for a player like Antonio Esfandiari to pay all in for an nine or for a king. It is very strange this hand because is poker live not online. I do not know what rules is for this poker after dark but we are talking about a very large amount of money. Professional players did not call all in a big amount of money for hazard.

If you have the money, why not calling this one right? Smile
He was up for a straight with two cards, and as he said he gambled and he got it.
What about chances here, percentage and all that Smile
It is called luck.

it's about the amount of money, is too much money for call. For this reason (9, k or hazard) it is called Dumb Call... Smile

So for less money, it would have been a less dumb call, calling at that point an all in while chasing?
Flop someone goes all in and you call, that hand with his cards?
I wouldnt.
But i am not a professional player either way, nor playing at these limits Smile

dumb call because these players pay all stack for a winning card. I hate this players because they are the ones who ruin your dreams...

After playing online for several years, I don't longer wonder about this call. People there make much weirder calls Smile But in this case I think Esfandiari called mostly for spectacular reasons, if there wouldn't such calls in such kind of TV shows the amount of viewers would be lower.

He has a double belly buster, and with that action at the flop he can be sure to not spilt the pot if he hits his straight. So against two opponents he is priced in, as he can't face another big bet at the turn 'cause the stacks are already to low.

yeah one can question whether this is just a hand to generate more buzz for the show or has esfandiari really lost his brainz for a second. in terms of percentages its not a good call to make, but on the other hand winners anot be judged.

I really thought that this was a very dubious call and i would never have done it. It proves that, no matter how good a player you are and Antonio is one of the best out there, you do need to get lucky as well

Did Antonio have a bigger stack than Cheadle and Tilly did? It was certainly a loose call but his QJ had roughly 27% equity when all the chips went in the middle. He knew he wasn't drawing dead on the flop.

when I see such distributions in poker tournaments ..... and especially when well-known players are playing this way my attitude to poker is changing .... I'm starting to think that the ability to play does not really need to be in poker, but it all depends on luck ... I know that this is wrong, but this feeling

The funniest news about Antonio Esfandiari I have read so far is that he was disqualified from the PCA Main Event back in 2016 for peeing under the table. Big Smile Big Smile

Dumb call indeed. This shows that bad players are not only in online poker. For the money I had to put in the pot, it was a clear fold.
But you see that he is not interested in money, because his reaction was as if he had earned a small sum. And he did not think so much about calling.
Maybe she should have played the hand twice!

ha ha .... after that I will not be surprised at all from this obviously crazy person ..... if he allows himself such crazy acts then his game in this hand is a usual thing for him ..... maybe of course. ..... no ..... it can not be justified ..... it must be checked for normality ... and I know the result

I have never heard of this incident before.
How hard was it to leave the table for a moment, to go to the toilet?
That was rude and disgusting. Their decision disqualifying him,
from the tournament, was a right one.

I read about it and it is very ugly what did he do Antonio Esfandiari. It was a bizarre thing. I think he bet someone that he has the courage to do so. This option is possible or he wanted to revenge the owner of that place. It is hard to believe that he could not stand up and find a wc.

Maybe it was going well, and he thought that if he got up he lost his luck XD
I am playing sometimes and I think that. hahaha, "cabalas"
I think the decision to get him out of the tournament was good, it's a lack of respect. I have also seen where players have been sanctioned for going to the bathroom and not waiting for the break (they are sanctioned not by playing a couple of hands).
