Tony admitted he had a 'brief moment of weakness' and said he lost his 'composure' after the final hand. However, on July 15th, 2018 Tony issued this statement through his Twitter account...
'I just wanted to respond to some of the things that were being said last night after my HU match with Johnny. I appreciate people being understanding and open-minded about a situation where we were both delirious and battling our hearts out.'
They are "buddies in action" that shared the final table and headsup WSOP Main Event Final Table. I mean how many people on the planet know how they feel ?
They even have facial hair - I almost fell off my seat !
I can understand Cynn's trepidation....you have a plan to last beyond your opponent to win headsup...hours and hours and hours and !wham! you flop top trips ??!!!!
Even worse.....your opponent is betting into you.....what's going on here Cynn must have thought....am I hallucinating.....brain tricking me into what I want to see so the body moves chips in the middle and I can go to sleep !
I am soooo tired, am I misreading my hand? Are there really 2 kings on the flop ? Why is Tony betting? Bigger King - Pocket 55 ??? Maybe flush draw? Right?
So tired and now you feel like you are being set-up for a really big dumb loss on international television ROTF !!
And poor Tony had to endure what indeed was a slow roll - but that's because these guys' brains were moving that slow!! No malice intended....I believe.
I don't blame either of these guys for their reactions.
Uneven facial hair on Tony....everyone is super excited that it's over.....Jonsten's rep doing her thing...."poor" Cynn has to hold up the bracelet.....and you can just see how reality has not sunk in yet for the champion.
Tony might have been steaming some but he can be proud that his play in that last hand was ok. He just had the misfortune of being up against a monster with his good hand.
Take 2nd...enjoy it.....and know that you will go down in history for being on the receiving end of the biggest money slow roll to date.
Good of him to say but Cynn knew it took longer than it should have for him to call. He even said "I'm not slowrolling you". I believe he was just thinking it through and not intending to slowroll but he's never folding there.
Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
