SO! I was just on Facebook and saw this video on a CardsChat post which has generated quite some comment and I got to wondering how you guys in the forum would play this hand.

If you dont have Facebook, or cant open this video....here's how it went.

CANDIO ($13.225,000 chips in 6th place) 5s7s raises to $385,000
CHEONG ($26 million chip and chip leader) AcAs raises to $1,125,000
CANDIO calls $740,000.

The pot is now $2,630,000,

Its 20% v 80%

The Flop comes with 5c, 6h, 6c.

Its 13% v 87%

CANDIO checks
CHEONG bets $1,550,000
The pot is now $4,180,000

CANDIO raises $4.4 million.
CHEONG shoves ALL IN
CANDIO calls ALL IN

The pot is now $26,830,000

The TURN comes 8s.

Its 23% v 77%

The RIVER comes...yup you guessed it..... 4c.

Have a look at CANDIO's reaction....hysteria!

bluff gone bad, then gone right.

My only surprise is that Candio seemed surprised that Cheong had Aces.

How would I have played this hand? Pretty much the same way that 99.99% of us would have played it (which is not the way Candio played it). I guess that's why the Pros are the Pros.

Candio played very badly, he had to lose another pre-flop, but he was very lucky)
