Episode 5 of the 2018 Triton Poker SHR Series in Jeju has now been released, and while we don't see Tom Dwan in this one, one round had produced one of the most extraordinary hands fans will never see too often - for one thing, the stakes were incredibly huge at $1,248,300 for the entire pot after the players were done betting, and the other is because the cards battling are Aces vs Kings vs Que[...]   Read more » Triton Poker Episode 5 of SHR Short Deck Cash Game produces Amazing Cold Deck Poker Hands

This format plays more like Omaha than the 52 card version of Hold 'em. Lots and lots of multiway hands. So hitting the flop becomes more important. Maybe one cause of Dwans problems. His greatest stregth is outplaying one opponent, and he will rarely have a chance to do this here.

I cant say that I understand this format of poker and never heard about him!I see that they remove some cards,that combinations for winning hands are different!flush beats full house and other things are much different and you need to watch every card,epsecially when you are new in this type of game!

Very interesting situation where this big pot is with so good starting hands from three players, aa vs kk vs qq, not every day you see this. And also i nit understand where episode 4 is because tom dwan lost in first three episodes but nit kniw what happens in episode 4

If it wasnt for all the big names in this game, i dont think that it would have many viewers.
More would follow with a less popular format like omaha hi/lo Smile

What decision there to fold his hand, with the other three players holding monster hands Smile And of course aces won, but with a straight, if im not mistaken.

Yep, the ace completed the straight, but he would have won without that, as the other players didn't improve their hands. And this games are held for the asian market, where the preverences for certain game types may be different from europe or the us.

This is the sort of hand you might see in a really cheesy poker movie. I do not think that i have ever been involved in such a hand and it was nice to see that the pocket aces held up for the massive win

I did not watch episode 4 but i noticed that Tom Dwan is no longer at the table. Probably lost and quit to buying other chips. An interesting hand between AA, KK and QQ and won the best pocket. The other players were not lucky to catch a King or a Queen. It's a beautiful show but not so impressive. If other famous players would play it would be very interesting.

Honestly it adds nothing for me in a form of fascination. I really don"t get these new formats because it adds nothing to the already established things within the game only changes up/tweaks minor things.

This format just leads to more action. With a lot of the duds removed, the chances of getting a playable hand have increased. Just look at the amount of players seeing a flop there. But of cause one could just play PLO, if a lot of action is what one wishes.

A free ticket would have been the only way for me also, to try and play this game,
in a real money tournament.
I would even consider playing this game for fun money also.
Where is the point anyway, playing a game that you dont like,
when you play for fun only Smile

I guess this is more a format for cash games, than for tourneys. As the is a higher chance that there is a flop, and therefore rake for the house. So i would be surprised to see free tourney tickets for the variant at any online room.

It does not matter in what format it is, we are not professional players who play there. The important thing is to watch and learn something good, if we really want this. It's interesting how those Asians play. They are more relaxed ( maybe it's from wine ) but the atmosphere there is pleasant.
