re: Poker & kenny tran/tom dwan/esfandiari sick collusion
Stupid thread. Srsly.
The convo has nothing to do with the hand. Tran is asking Dwan 'Durrr, I'll do 15 pushups for $500, how many do you think I can do?' He is issuing a side-bet challenge here for Dwan.
Antonio, who is in the middle of this convo (literally), most likely overhears Tran and blurts out '37' Why? Who knows. Maybe its because its the size of the bet by Laak, maybe it's just the first number that popped up. Reguardless...Antonio isn't in the convo. Tran is talking with Dwan.
Now Dwan, who is a bit confused by Tran's engrish ask 'What did you say?' To which Tran replies 'I've been up 2 and half days, how many push-ups do you think I can do?' Dwan just gives of a random number of '68'. If you listen closely, Tran says 'I can't even do 30 right now.' Why? Because he has been up for 2 days and he is probably very fatigued. If Tran is side-betting Dwan on how many push-ups he can do for $500 and 2 days of no rest, Dwan is gonna say some unlikely number Tran mostly can't do.
There is no coded, secret collusion dialog going. It's typical HSP side chat while a hand is going on. To think otherwise is just simply retarded. What are going to do when Tran folds K2 and the flop is K 2 K while Atonio is still in a hand? Tell Dwan if he joins the KKK he'll get a free boat? It doesn't make sense, just like your over-analysis of this video.
...Crap. Now i just over-analyized OP's post.
