How did they all fold also weirdest hand I ever saw in my life? 99 with gutshot straight flsuh suaully has a ton of equity, top top last to act is pretty strong though a tough call.

pretty terrible folding a set, she for some reason didn't want to take a 60-40 flip and would just rather chipping up with small pots.
there was like 28 left with flat pay outs so very limited icm

After listening to her logic for folding on the flop I can't figure out why she didn't fold pre.

99 guy has action behind and is facing a 1million chip jam in to a 600k pot. Perfectly reasonable fold. Could basically be drawing dead.

Set fold is bad though. Tons of equity even if she's behind..

Only the AhKh, or AhQh (MAYBE) is a hand that she's behind given the pre-flop action. Super easy jam, should be way ahead of an overpair the vast majority of the time. She's more likely to run into top set than the made flush, and far more likely to run into hands with the Ah in them such as AhKnh. Super easy jam, as she's ahead of that range.

Sorry for being out of touch. Does she make a living from playing poker?

Probably makes more from her Winstar sponsorship and TV gigs than she does playing tournaments. Not dissing her playing ability but the reality of playing tourneys for a living. Unsustainable long term but for a very few.

Nits are gonna nit but I don't get why folding pre is not a consideration.

I'ts not nearly the worst fold ever, but her call pre was pretty poor IMO. She justified it by saying she had 55 bbs or something so she can cold call a squeeze. She should be thinking about the stack to pot ratio going to the flop, and the risk of one of the players behind rejamming. I've seen this type of play quite a bit in televised live tourneys, people cold calling 3bets/4bets with stuff like TT/JJ/AQ where they should fold or jam.

Terrible call preflop. Just don't cold call 3bets or squeezes. That is some absolutely basic strat even 2nl donks know. Postflop is cringeworthy but hey, it's live poker

Do people like Maria Ho? I get that she is a decently looking gal in this so very heavily male dominated pass time so she will get a ton of media attention but is she that popular?
