The example i'm using below is from the PAD with Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, cool Finn Patrik Antonius, Ilari ‘Ziigmund’ Sahmies, Howard Lederer and Eli Elezra
I think phil ivey and others where doing it to undermind Tom Dwan's aggressive play And get Tom confused on his reads because the props change how that player who is prop betting on how he plays his hand. What we saw that night what we learned of that night with them on poker after dark was priceless.
We saw how veteran poker players handle aggression at the highest levels in live play . Real gritty stuff . It was amazing ...
