You're new here, as I am, so I'll be as diplomatic as possible. A bunch of us are trying to get to the 50 post threshold to be eligible for the FR's again, but I still try to be as accurate and insightful as possible.
Shark was talking about his first experience playing live, so comparing it to Fulltilt is irrelevant. Shark read draw, when the player already flopped the nuts, with 8 9, not 7 8.
It turned out to be a classic HU coin flip situation, a pr vs. two overs. This is a common strategy, albeit usually reserved for late tourney play. That's one reason "why what player stayed in the hand preflop."
I apologize if this comes across as a flame, I don't mean it to be. As a noob to the site myself, I go to great lengths to make sure my responses are germane to the original post, and accurate.
To the mods, I hope I didn't overstep any boundaries, just trying to help.
