I am not sure if this is already in a thread somewhere but seems like harrington25 is confused by the play of the hand. Hand is at the top of the article. Does he just think its a donk call or is he really suspicious of something else?

The chat shows me dwan has a career in politics ahead of him. He was obviously getting baited and did not let the conversation spiral downward.

We don't know what Durrr had from that article as the above guesses it was most likely a full house with Q9. But Q9 on that board is 3rd nuts(I think) with QQ and 1010 beating him. Just calling the river with 3rd nuts in omaha is ridiculous?

I did not see this can you point me in the right direction. The link to pokertableratings shows the hand but not Durrs hole cards.

WTF harrington25 wins the pot when his opponent just calls the river... and he is bitching about it?

We need to know durrrr's cards to have any intelligent discussion, but raising bottom boat (for example) in Omaha is far from automatic, even heads-up.

Maybe durrrr can tell from his bet sizing and bet timing. Or something.

If something was actually shady durrr would've folded it and not called. Kinda captain obvious...

Unless Durrrr could see Harrington's hole cards and also knew that full tilt support randomly checked the mucked hole cards of high stakes players for anomolies e.g. folding the third nuts to a river bet.

Folding the third nuts would basically prove he was superusing whereas calling leaves it open to debate.

Apparently durrrr had what he considered a showdown hand, based on his read, so he showed it down (i.e. he just called).

For a value raise to be correct here, you have to be confident you are ahead, AND that your opponent will call with worse hands, AND that you won't get bluffed off the best hand, AND that you won't pay off better hands.

That's a whole bunch of ANDs.

FYP. If he had folded, this would actually be an interesting thread.

Point taken, hammer time. But I think it's really unlikely something's going on fwiw. I don't even know much about PLO and get the transition of similar NLHE spots where calling with a v good hand > raising and it's durrr.

harrington does not think there s something shady going on, as mentioned in the article. He s just impressed as hell imo!

If he had folded nobody would have known he had q9 and there would be no discussion

Harrington pots the turn and bets less than pot on the river. Clearly with this discombobulated geometric pot growth he is representing a scared KJ. If he is repping KJ he either a) has KJ, which he folds to a raise, b) has much better, against which Q9 is losing, or c) has much worse, which wont call a raise.

Harrington mangled his bet-sizing and astute poker player Tom Dwan latched onto it in an instant and made the correct range-based call.

Only scummy Harrington knows the whole cards. Observers can't see them. It's just assumed it was Q9. After his minbet when durrrr d/c and then his phony apology/compensation added to this chat, he's coming across as a giant dbag lately.
