Yes you are ranting. Don't show this again. The following table shows the wins return for Double Bonus. Retrieved 13 July There are 10, possible straight hands and 10 distinct ranks of straight under high rules when using a standard card deck.
Morgan quickly calls the bet and Dwan folds. Morgan calling and not raising tells me he's open ended on a straight, has 4 to a flush or hit top pair. Any low pair just to see the flop gets folded. You're asking to get drawn out on with very little to risk with a straight and flush possible to come.
The turn comes 8s. Morgan calls quickly again. Morgan calling quickly tells me he did not hit the straight flush. He would have either raised slightly or if he's slow playing he hems and haws a little for show to try and extract more money from Smirnov on the river.
I would also rule out the 7's full or 8's now along with the straight flush for Morgan. I'm thinking he hit a jack on the flop for top pair and had the Ace of Spades as well for the nut flush draw, but with a pair on the board and betting coming from Smirnov he thinks it's possible Smirnov has a two pair or three 8's. The River comes Ks. Smirnov bets , with his four 8's. This is now just under 1,, from Smirnov in bets, but he's played scared all the way through and he's given up the opportunity to put all the pressure of a call on Morgan with a very large or all in bet and given Morgan the chance to do the same to him.
You never want to be in that position. It is a horrible feeling and you almost feel powerless. Morgan takes just a few seconds and calls "All In" for about 3. Smirnov finishes what he started and again plays week and folds after thinking for about 2 minutes. Morgan outplayed Smirnov all the way through. And to put the icing on the cake of weakness, Smirnov shows his quad 8's for some horrible reason. If he is that honest and he had the Straight Flush, he admits it.
From everything I've read there were no hole cameras at the table, which will make this hand go down in history aa the most amazing hand ever. Even if Morgan comes out sometime in the future and says he had the straight flush, there will be people who will say he's just saying that to be nice.
