This guys are completely "nuts"! Dwans bluff is something out of the sky, never seen anything like that, Ivey waiting to see till the end and then he quits the pot because he didnt got a flush... god, must be a very sick person inside, how can he handle this much pressure?

Old stuff but it's indeed really good stuff Big Smile If you ask me tom dwan durrrr always did the most insane bluffs out there!

Sometimes he managed to trick it's opponent with that look of his but again he also lost big many times.

I think we all miss those poker days when big cash games were played pretty frequent, i think it will take some time before we'll see that kind of madness again.

Great hand but it kind of teaches idiot play. Amateurs see this and think playing low connectors and bluffing with air is standard play. Surely it's more trouble than it's worth, when two poker giants decide to lock horns for no reason. But it's great tv and I suppose that's what gives them their reputation and gets them lots of sponsorship.

That bluff was amazing, I remember it!! He's lucky Phil Ivey didn't hit anything though Big Smile

8-9 or an up and down straight draw was pretty much the only hands Ivey could beat there!

The first one was pretty standard, I think I would do the same playing vs Tom "82s or better" Dwan lol Smile The second one was good though.

Dwan needs a medal, every year he is getting better so sick, and still at the beginning of his poker carreer. have all faith in him, have no clue where it ends for him.

Well I guess he decided to shoot his 3 bullets: Flop Turn and river
If Ivey had something ( pair or strt)he would have probably raised because of the flush draw danger. So I guess one could fire 3 times. But still very brave. Especially because of his loose reputation.

Masters of poker!!!! You are the best guys!!!! Smile

Yeah I saw this.

Awesome stuff - a necessity of the game and yet so many people think that's how every hand is played.

Newcomers all start off bluffing like crazy. Great if you're at the table.

Thing is Dwan knows Phil is as likely to be bluffing with nothing as he is, so he has to bluff harder to get his money. Really insane.

these guys don't think of the money that much - until they cash out.

But you could see that pot really shook Dwan, his voice went squeaky lol and he went white lol. His motionless expression nearly didn't work.

i really thought that ivey was going to call there,would have took some guts though!
durr is relenless when he gets going and you never know if he has it or not.
 39andyac23/05/2012 19:05:22 GMT
This was very interesting! indeed you could here in his voice that he was bluffing! it reminds me of pokerstars Tongue there most players are bluffing to Smile

Old news or not some of us haven't been around or playing long enough to have ever seen this and I'm glad it was posted. Very gutsy playing on both players part. I just couldn't do it! I don't want to give up $5 let alone some ridiculous amount of cash.
