to be fair, only 86 people entered and about 90% of the field were pros, so it was odds on to have a table like this. I don't understand the strategy of the game at all though, have you read some hands that have been played?? It seems a jack low is treated like the nuts with people willing to shove or call all ins with it then stand pat.

Also had on person raise, someone else push all in for a huge amount, then someone else call that with original raiser folding. The caller stood pat and flipped over q-low, which was good enoguh to beat the hand of the person who pushed and drew one.

I understand how triple draw works, but don't get the strategy of this single draw lark at all

without doing all the math of seen cards J v 1 draw AQK 4(3/4)prs v 6 lo cards J is about even. Maybe it was right move in the situation.

Yeah, this. A pat jack is a favourite over a hand that's drawing in single-draw.

Real shame this isn't getting filmed :(

Mike The Mouth did a masterful job of winning that bracelet! Heck, he even called a big bet by Barry Greenstein with a K high and won the hand since Barry's one card draw gave him a pair of 8's.

Sounds like Mike's got a hold of himself, hes lost a TON of weight and won his prop bet. I think hes out of debt, has a positive outlook on poker, and is playing the best poker in his life. Congrats Mikey and good luck in the rest of the events.
