I'm just curious about your thoughts on this tournament andthe heada up. For those who were watching, you think that Wheeler went too far with his trash talk or that was quite a tactic and a way to show his dominance?
For me personally it was the later even though he didn't win at the end he showed a good poker. Although you may say that I am his funboy a little bit. Haha.
HU Wheeler tried to outplay him. But Sow didn't miss a flop and easily called him down.
Had there been more pots where they both missed I think Wheelers aggression would have won out. But it just ended up that he bluffed off half his stack, getting frustrated and then made a pretty dubious decision to shove at the end.
That was very interesting heads up, I didn't watch it live I watched replay. Wheel was pretty rude, but I don't know why but I liked it. He seems like regular poker living player, I don't like players with glasses hats and etc.. it was very funny deal.. hosts were in shock by the wheels reacting but he cut a lot of time say directly what he want. A Sow was scared accepting a deal, but he might playes for all of his friends didint invest in him and they decided :-). Sow didn't respect wheel but he didn't him too.. really funny game love it.. but I must say that I don't like when there is deal involved. It ruins all the tension in head up.
for me Wheeler has much more poker skill than Sow. in last hand when they shove and wheeler look Sow have KK, wheeler said "run so pure" agree that sow hands almost always comes on the flop.. but have to admit sow play very calm and always in control.. both player just amazing.. sorry for my english
I thought Wheeler would take it because he has more skill and experience than Sow , but there's the luck side in poker for sure , Sow got some big hands and also he was very calm , controled the game very well and kinda deserve it .
