This is a discussion on Was Cary Katz getting 'cute' with aces at the 2019 WSOP Europe High Roller? within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Cary Katz doesn’t always make poor decisions, but maybe he did this time?
What should or could he have done differently?

Cary is a Professional so i am in no position to criticize or say he is 'Cute'(even though i am better looking than him...lol).
How about how i will handle this hand of his.
Surely with Aces on SB, facing a mid pos 2.5x preflop raise, i will definitely wanna 3bet that in order to ISO play him, given the BB is still waiting eagerly for my option.
Without my position advantage, i will check-raise or mine-setting on the rainbow K74 flop. Even if Villain check back on flop, surely i HAVE to add pressure on the turn by betting at least 1/2 to 3/4 pot given a straight and flush draw available.
Lastly, even if i did everything Cary had done until the river, facing that 460,000 bet, i will 3bet-fold for sure.
Even if you crazily open 56 preflop which hit a straight or JQd(mid-pos range) to get your flush, i have to raise the river.
Anyway, this report doesn't indicate if Cary's Aces include that Diamond, if yes, i will surely 3bet just to represent i have the nut flush.
Anyway, i will still stick to my preflop 3bet with Aces.
