What did Phil Hellmuth, the godfather of poker, do to spark fire at the US Poker Open?
At last month’s $25,000 No- Limit Hold’em final table at the US Open , the 16-time WSOP bracelet -winning poker godfather had a thought-provoking game, opening Qd4h.
In this game, Foxen used 9s4d to open the pot all the way to $125,000, while Phil Hellmuth directly 3-bet the pot to add to $350,000, and then All-in after the opponent made a 4-bet squeeze, Seeing that everyone is clueless, and finally won the second place in this game.
After the game, it caused a wave of heated discussion on Twitter
Many people took to social media to express their opinions on the hand, and some took a swipe at Phil Hellmuth’s game, but it wasn’t the first time he’d chosen to play it in the past week. Crazy to start with such a weird hand.
The rationality of holding Qs4d bonus points in hand
Looking at it all, this hand does have its legitimacy. Phil Hellmuth also opened with Qd4d in a game last Monday. In this game, he went all-in for $3,200 and his opponent was 50,000. Knife started the game. Such a huge starting hand gap made the opponent retreat and had to fold to end, which also made this hand Q4 an alternative symbol of the godfather of poker .
WSOP team unprofessional sharing:
It’s true that you can criticize Phil Hellmuth for calling and adding with such a weak hand, but don’t forget that it takes a lot of experience and grit to start a hand like this, and to deal with it depending on the situation of the game. In order to play with this kind of hand in high-end games, after all, in high-end games, not ordinary people can easily bluff with weak hands.
And will the godfather of poker continue to maintain such a recent wave of Q4 operations and continue to show everyone? Let’s look forward to the next competition! !
