I'm with you there. I think he just was tilty from all the beats he'd been taking up to that point. Time and again flopping the best and getting run down.
Yeah he's got a good hand, but what's making this move here? If Gus had flopped a set with Daniel, both of those hands beat his, 9's full or quads. If the 8 really did help him, then he's probably got 8's full, still ahead of Daniel. Doesn't seem like a move that you'd make with a straight on a paired board at all. What would he be expecting to call that's worse? And after the action does Gus think he's getting FE? Probably not, but I don't play with Gus much either, so I couldn't know for sure. Anyway, if we assume Gus is making this bet because he thinks he's got the best hand and we have a worse hand that can call, the range of possible hands is full houses and quads, and once we get to those, we're behind.
