After Dwan had raised on the flop, he could no longer fold that hand.

Both players played the hand perfectly and it was good to see neither of them bottle it because of the sums of money involved.

After that flop all the money was always gonna end up in the middle - fantastic entertainment and none of that run it twice bull either.

I don't feel sorry for Greenstein... He cracked Durrr Aces on a donk play and now Durrr cracked his Aces... and this time the math wasn't idiotic, just a 50/50.

what happens if they run it twice. do they deal two turns and two rivers. who wins then? I've never heard of this

I think the slogan "math is idiotic" kind of sucks, they could have come up with a better phrase than that..."Ship it Crucial"was so much better.

awood88, run it twice is the turn and river is dealt twice and if they both win one than its a split pot, if someone wins twice than he wins the pot. I think running it twice favours the losing hand but I'm not sure.

Yep it does, I like Barry's style allways running it once. Running a 1 mill pot twice is like running 2 500K pots imo. "Destroying" the idea of high stakes poker if they chop the big pots in peaces they might as well play smaller amounts. But it's all fun to watch so who cares Tongue
