The smarter thing to do would of been to fold after the flop he just got lucky, he could of easily blew his stack on that one hand.
Yous could put it down to Phil being a genious and having the right "read" but I think he just got really lucky.
Then again the same could be said for jacksons play, he played it bad too.
Wow, that's a very amauterish comment to make- Obv. the whole tournament they have been aggresive with each other to come this point. No luck or bad play is seen here as you mentioned. They both had a read and went with it annnnd that read is nothing to underestimate! You don't need cards or bets telling you otherwise when you have a certain read!
Also there was no slowplaying here like you mentioned on Jckson's part. People usually call with monsters rather than raising small, so Phil knew 2nd reraise of Jackson wasn't strong but rather to push him off; he went with this read with other dinamics and it was correct. Therefore a brilliant play.
People need to think outside of the box. For the love of God, haven't you seen Durrrr's play this season on Hsp, how fantastic those small edges make up to?
