I do not think so. That's a lot of money. Say he was beat with a boat and took that long to call nobody would have said anything. I think it was fine. Now if he had the boat and took that long it would have been a slow roll.
1) They both played for 10 HOURS (heads up), they were both visibly tired so reaction time may have been off.
2) Cynn did not have the nuts. So he had to take time to consider how many bluffs are in Miles range compared to value hands. He was losing to full house if behind.
3) When you have been grinding a poker tournament for 10 days and a $3.8 MILLION dollar decision is on the line you can take as much time as you need to make that final call. For the most part they both were playing pretty quickly during heads up.
I do not think he slowroll on purpose. But it was a slowroll. Rethink about the hand, how many players can actually think of folding the hand after that flop in a headsup situation? And he did check-call the flop to trap the check-shove on the turn or river. He took his time to make the call which is a good thing as a pro. But took that long in the situation where you will never fold is a slowroll no matter how you justify.
No not a slow roll. People say it was and some people say it’s exhaustion etc. Reality is that they’re the last two players for the Main Event and if anyone was paying attention whatsoever to the chip stacks, whoever won that hand would probably go on to win the tournament. It was a big hand and taking a couple of minutes to think about it was the right move.
It was a huge sum of money to call off with trips, I don't believe it was a slowroll. Also they were both fatigued from long days of play. It was the biggest spot of his life. He has to call, which is why he did, but he didn't like it. He was concerned his opponent had him beat as not many players would bluff off their stack for millions of dollars.
Cynn looked deliriously tired the 2nd half of that HU...I seriously thought he was considering his options. Honestly think he woulda insta snapped if it were the first hour of the HU and he was still fresh.
I am not sure that was a slow roll. He did lose earlier with three kings when he was out kicked. I don't know what took him so long to call. You can't really fold that hand there and would be an instant call for most players. I like Cynn and think he was just trying to make sure because it was such a big call.
It was definitely not a slowroll. There were many possible hands that beat KJ but there’s not much likelihood of a Cynn fold either. With so much money and a world championship at stake I think Cynn wanted to be 100% and think the situation through. It definitely was the biggest hand of his life and there’s nothing wrong with being sure. I certainly don’t think I would’ve taken much time but I can’t fault him or anyone in that situation for doing so. Both players were mentally and physically drained and analyzing the hand thoroughly was impressive. Congrats Mr Cynn.
