Re: "9 high like a boss"

Benger was pretty out of line in the elimination hand.

UK players seeing someone with that result play there comp?? Bringing so much people into the game. Unlike most pros the guy is humble however hard that is to imagine. Even after that results he is cool with just grinding 2/5 and 1/2.

All the players on his table episode 12 can do 1, episode 12 really pissed me off, Bleznicks dig saying I will stake you for the 109 rebuys, oooh the arrogance. Mathew Moss proved himself a true **** aswell.

Ok so the tanking, that I agree with and I do think will is nave to that fact. I mean if everyone tanked like him it would be a big problem and he should see that for sure....

Talking when someones making a decision is perfectly fine and a big part of how poker was in the good old days, I would like to see it come back! everyone should talk, a battle of wits aswell as math and fundamentals

Just my 2 cents but I haven't watched this new episode yet as I am in the UK so not uploaded yet haha maybe I will change my mind
Good on him for going back and grinding, that is awesome. Listen, I hate Bleznick and he's a cheating tool & I don't know Moss but Kassouf just really went over the line a lot so it's really tough to see thru the bad parts to see his humility.
Table talk is fine but incessantly talking while someone is trying to think is not cool in the least. A little banter and tanking is fine but he took it to really bad levels.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

Through 12 or whatever episodes that obst hand where he folds on the river was the worst played hand we've seen

Re: "9 high like a boss"

The hand tonight. Qui Nguyen raised naked bottom pair on the turn, Obst had a gutshot straight flush draw. River made a flush for Obst and trips for Nguyen, Obst check folded.

I know him personally and he's a great guy.

Either 1 of 2 things. Either he played Kassouf like a fiddle to induce a shove (which he did) or that clip was after 5 minutes of Kassouf yappin his beak when Benger had said nothing.

Don't care...if Kassouf was taking too long, Benger can call the clock, not launch into personal attacks. Kassouf is a pain in the ass, but he was doing nothing wrong besides wasting time. So - call the clock.

Kassouf was right - Benger let him get under his skin. He lost it.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

I've lost some of the respect I had for Cliff Josephy watching this coverage. Even disregarding the Kassouf stuff, I think he's come across like a bit of a pompous ass.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

I can't stand Kassouf, but when Benger told him to "check his privilege" I felt a massive wave of cringe wave over me. That hand in real time actually took over18 minutes and most of that time Kassouf was badgering him so I think he must have got frustrated.

The use of a SJW term at the main event of the W.S.OP is depressing as hell.

Re: "9 high like a boss"

I honestly would have rather seen kassouf go busto than win the tourney myself. That was such poetic justice for someone who was just being a douchebag the entire tourney to a bunch of different people for no reason. Hope this dude gets a nice long track record of bubbling final tables after being a time wasting d-bag.


edit: I will admit saying "check your privilege" to will is super lame. but after kassouf has been badgering him for 15+ minutes, I can feel some sympathy for benger.
