This has been mentioned before but I don't see how it's possible.
Viktor is obv a good player and has to assume the woman is committed here, he wouldn't shove here giving her ~10 to 1 on a call with absolutely no equity in the pot if called.
When the woman was debating a call or a fold she looked at Viktor a couple times (trying to get a read or something, lol) and he looked her in the eyes a couple times with this smirk on his face. Like he was thinking "lol, you're actually going to fold ?", and laughed a bit at her while scooping the pot.
Why would he put her in with air if he thought she wasn't going to fold?
if she c/r 30k on the turn leaving 10k behind she should always be calling, the times she is not calling should be less than 5%.
viktor cant profitably put her in with 56o here, hence why I am struggling to believe that this is what he had. If that is the case, he has made a clear -EV play, something a player of his calibre should not do.
Thanks, makes a lot more sense... action seems to be as follows
pre flop Blom raises button and Mercier calls in SB.
Mercier donks the flop (AcTs9c) and Viktor flats with A4o
Mercier checks the turn (Jd), Blom bets, Mercier c/r leaving her a tiny amount behind, Viktor doesn't believe and sets her in with TPWK and she folds.
Really don't know what Mercier had but seems she played this hand the worst she could have.
