I quite like this hand. Even though he showed so many tells he has nothing or forgot to watch the hand. Especially at 2:06. It looks he didn't even hide it. Love it anyway. And noone stretched the time...

Brad Booth super nice guy! Had a quick rise to fame in the poker community but then an agonizing fall as he was one of the victims of the superuser account on UB/AP, losing a large chunk of change.

I met Brad in 2008 and got to spend part of the day with him at the RiverRock Casino in Vancouver (he was living there at the time). It was great news this past week to hear that he is alive & okay after seeing some news articles about him being missing.

Brad Booth showed that he has a pocket pair, maybe even a set on the flop. It would be a difficult call. I think he planned this bluff regardless of the cards that came in on the flop. But if Phil Ivey had called this bluff, he could still have lost. Brad Booth could win even with such terrible cards thanks to a 20 % chance.

Phil Ivey is a great player, but it was a serious bluff.
And I guess it wasn't a little money on the table.

Great video clip! Hard to say unless you are ever in that situation yourself, but I feel like I'd fold like Ivey did. KK is a great hand preflop and I love a good Hero Call (who doesn't? xD), but I don't think the math is there based on Ivey's perspective. The problem is partly that KK hits nothing on that flop. Ivey could easily be facing Two Pair (most likely realistic hand I think if not a bluff), or even three of a kind. Those two remaining cards to come also worry me. I wonder if Ivey would have folded AA the same. Statistically so similar to KK, but with KK here I am sure Ivey considered his opponent having AA as a possible thought.

Back before brad became associated with all the bad stuff he is associated with (at least thats the word). Bet he wishes it was these days again
