...Whats wrong with this? He has a monster of hand preflop that beats everything except AA which Farha happens to have. I think this is a great strategy because it makes it a bit harder for your opponents to read you.
The strategy that your talking about that happened before the reraise bye sammy well Im not annoyed bye that . Im bothered bye the way he act's when he wins and when he looses AND IN THIS CASE WHEN HE REALIZES HE IS BEAT ! because after sammy reraises HE IS NOT USING STRATEGY LOL !!
the second he realizes he's beat, he gets completly upset and begging Sammy to cut his losses. what a tool. he deserved to lose his last 185k
...Actually, while Jamie might suck at playing poker-he is great at talking his way out of trouble. If you're familiar with Gold's antics at the WSOP, he was able to talk his opponents to folding or calling. Im thinking Farha had that in the back of his head because Gold was giving mixed signals-acting weak and telling Farha to check, but then saying if Farha goes all in he is going to call. The fact Jamie is saying "I'm putting you on Aces", showing he has a good read of the situation but then tells Farha he has him beat. His cold call of Farha's 100K bet probably worried Farha into thinking Jamie might have a set at this point. I think in the end, Farha thought he had the best hand but was a bit worried about the small chance Jamie had had him beat. It was already a $400K pot but would cost him another $200K to see if he had the best hand or not if he bet. I think he decided to play it safe.
Actually it is jamie's very words that gives his hand away ! "I'm putting you on Aces", Jamie says right after sammy reraises , "you have the aces sammy?"
Gabe Kaplan and I both realized that Jamie gave his hand away . and the whole table knew also. Especially sammy and antonius (The laugh by sammy and patrik at 5:17
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_CVonp7SQs&feature=related#) ) He wasn't talking himself out of trouble he was talking himself into trouble.
You can't out hustle a hustler , especially one who's better than you
So who on cc would do what sammy did and let jamie off the hook ?
...This is probably easy for you to say because you can see the hands, but try playing it from Farha's seat. You have about $200K invested into a pot with an opponent who has been verbally telling you he has you beat, you can bet him off of the hand, and has been very active. True, there is a chance you have the best hand and can win $400K from your opponent, but if you're wrong, you're down $400K yourself. That's a lot of money to lose with just a pair.
It is easy for me because I would of had aces and jamie would do like he did and shout out you have aces sammy !!! lol and I would of chuckled inside knowing he has ks. Its very simple and I think your looking into it to much and coming up with more than what it is. Jamie got caught opening his mouth and then patheticaly tried to mix up begging sammy to check and then saying I have to call I have a monster lol..

Sammy and Antonius the very next hand had a million dallor pot and sammy was on a HEART DRAW !!! So your 400k scenario doesn't apply .
But It still doesn't matter because jamie told sammy without knowing that he jamie had ks That simple . Sammy is all about image when the cameras are on him. He looks a million times better bye letting jamie off the hook .
A MILLION TIMES BETTER.
