Table Talk

Posted 6 minutes ago by FerricRamsium

The action folded around to the blinds, and Phil Ivey limped in. From the big blind, Bojan Gledovic was confused at the play and asked, "Did you raise??"

Ivey pointed to the three yellow chips in front of him. "That's three thousand here, and you have three thousand over there," Ivey smirked.

"Hey, you don't have to be mean to the guy," Barry Greenstein piped up from across the table. There has been plenty of good-natured table talk over there at Table 21, and everyone seems to be in a pretty chipper mood despite the high stakes.

Gledovic was just surprised to see a limp from Ivey, that's all. He knocked the table, and the two men checked the {5-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} {8-Spades} flop. Ivey bet the turn, holding a red chip in his hand and slowly announcing, "Five thousand," with another broad smirk. Gledovic quickly folded.

Barry spoke up again, poking at his pal Ivey. "Let me give you a little tip," he said. "You're supposed to be nice to the guy on your left who has more chips than you."

Ivey came right back: "Come on, Barry. Every time you have chips, you talk non-stop."

Greenstein: "Yeah, and you better believe you're going to hear me when I have more chips than you, too."

Ivey: "...Then it'll be the first time I've heard you in about six years."


There are smiles all around over there, and the table talk continues to be a source of entertainment for the lesser-known players there. And us, for that matter.
Excellent

Dan Shak is a guy who pops up from time to time, so we must assume he has a fair amount of experience.

The only thing I can assume is he is trying to push the guy off a better queen, which might have worked. But if that's the case, why not just push, if you're going to call his push anyway?

I just can't see investing so much time and trouble and money into a profession and then playing like this.

Unless I am missing something. That's why I'm asking.

Now to meet Blom and listen to him talk about poker, now THAT's something any poker player should be interested in.

You ask the question like people are supposed to be thrilled at meeting Obama. LOL. Maybe when you're from the U.S., don't know about that.

It's the complicated value-bet bluff. A player so bad makes a bet that he believes is a value bet, but all he is turning his hand into is a bluff.
