  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • To err is human.

  • Come and cry on my shoulders.

  • To err on camera is entertainment!

  • Oops!

  • They say you should learn from your mistakes.

  • Well, we put five big ones from the expanded PokerStars

  • archive, so maybe you can learn from these guys' mistakes

  • instead.

  • Sam, please, don't bluff.

  • When you're convinced you're beat,

  • it's tempting to make cards at showdown.

  • But in the Barcelona Main Event in 2010,

  • Giuseppe Pantaleo learned a valuable lesson.

  • So two big stacks go to the flop.

  • And the flop is queen high.

  • Nothing for either player.

  • This is a fairly safe flop to continuation bet.

  • This only hits a queen and the club flush draw.

  • He can bet and take it down.

  • Or he can think about it and check back.

  • The queen comes on the turn.

  • There's also a third club.

  • And Lizano feels like he can steal it.

  • Giuseppe slowed down on the flop.

  • Jesus is going to take a stab.

  • 230,000.

  • Again, Giuseppe's going to think about this.

  • We saw him happily float against Chandler DeVries.

  • Yup.

  • And it looks like that's what's going to go on here,

  • Giuseppe has a cunning plan in store.

  • He's going to float this turn with nothing

  • to try to win this pot on the river.

  • They both have the same hand.

  • Queens and deuces with a jack kicker.

  • The aggressor will probably win this pot.

  • Lizano has not shut down, he bets a second time.

  • And Giuseppe's reaching for chips.

  • It looks like his plan is falling into place.

  • He's going to raise Jesus off this chop-pot.

  • Makes it 790,000.

  • How much?

  • Jesus thinks Pantaleo is on the steal.

  • Can he find the courage to re-raise him?

  • Well, Jesus can't possibly call this river raise.

  • He could only be good if Giuseppe

  • was calling his turn bet with a complete air ball

  • to bluff the river.

  • To win, he needs to re-raise.

  • He's called!

  • Immediately!

  • Well, it's going to be a chop-pot.

  • Whoa!

  • Pantaleo's just mucked!

  • Giuseppe just forfeited the pot by mucking hand

  • and it would have been a chop-pot.

  • Yeah, but you don't think someone's

  • going to be calling you with the same hand, do you?

  • That's exactly why he mucked!

  • I can't believe Lizano called there with jack high,

  • and I can't believe he just mucked!

  • I had the jack high, too.

  • Yeah, I saw it.

  • You saw it?

  • Well if there's one lesson to be learned,

  • never muck your cards until your opponent's hand

  • has been revealed.

  • Bluff called off a chop.

  • Yes, that actually happened.

  • At number 4, Neil Farrell blasts off in full Farrell-do fashion

  • on the bubble of the 2014 Barcelona Main Event.

  • Olly Price calls out to the big blind with jack-8.

  • And we're going three-way to the flop.

  • Top set for Lamprecht.

  • Hey, all right, you flopped a set,

  • James Woods from The Hard Way.

  • He checks.

  • Price, who has nothing--

  • And this is weird.

  • --leads for 13,500.

  • Most folks are never leading anything here,

  • but Olly's no slouch.

  • My guess is that this is part of an overall strategy we're not

  • privy to yet.

  • Farrell calls with ace high.

  • Not surprising, Olly's lead usually isn't very strong.

  • Lamprecht it is going to want to raise here,

  • but I'm not sure he needs to.

  • He's basically got a lock on this hand against even really

  • strong ranges.

  • He's made it 36,500.

  • Gets a fold from Price.

  • I'd be far more surprised to see Neil call now.

  • He pretty much has bottom of his calling

  • range to the original bet, let alone this one.

  • Isn't that right, James Woods from Cat's Eye?

  • Call.

  • Well, I guess we're going to turn.

  • Now and James Woods from Videodrome

  • looks kind of sick about it, I don't know why.

  • Ace of hearts on the turn.

  • Puts a flush draw out there.

  • Should be a pretty easy shove for Lamprecht,

  • he's got about half pot.

  • All in.

  • There he goes.

  • Ooh, piece of candy.

  • And I guess Farrell feels he's getting a good price.

  • He might think he has the call and he probably hates it.

  • Could just be dead.

  • This could be fun.

  • Calling on the flop was probably the worst decision by a Farrell

  • since the movie Phone Booth.

  • But I like Phone Booth.

  • This is not going to buy this Farrell a new house.

  • He calls.

  • Do I have to show?

  • Ha ha.

  • I did not think you would have that.

  • It's on TV.

  • And Neil Farrell is drawing dead.

  • Lamprecht will double up here.

  • I would've lost all this stuff, you couldn't even

  • shove it anyway, that's fine.

  • Nice hand.

  • And kind of lucky too.

  • What a bizarre hand.

  • Oh, bad news, Farrell-do.

  • Gotcha!

  • At number 3, it's another hand from Barcelona.

  • Maybe it's the heat.

  • In the Super High Roller in 2014,

  • Martin Jacobson did a Neil Farrell.

  • We're going three-way to the flop.

  • And that flop has a 4 on it.

  • A set for Colman.

  • What's Martin doing?

  • He should be checking here.

  • This is bad timing.

  • He leads the flop for 77,000.

  • I like a flat call from Colman, because they

  • think Martin's donk leading this flop with a bad hand way

  • more often than a good one.

  • So Dan raises, he probably gets two folds

  • way too often, which you don't want,

  • you want Martin to keep bluffing.

  • Colman does just call.

  • And Seidel folds.

  • We'll never know what he had.

  • 10 on the turn.

  • Jacobson now with a gut shot.

  • Martin's probably never going to get a fold here

  • unless the board runs out so badly for 4's that it

  • makes his hand actually win.

  • He's betting again, which is just 9% equity.

  • 155,000.

  • There's not much more reason for Dan

  • to fold now than there was on the flop.

  • 7-8 out there.

  • Once again, Colman just calls.

  • 627,000 in the middle.

  • One card to come.

  • And that card is a king.

  • A set of 4's are good.

  • Yeah, I don't think Dan's ever folding.

  • Hopefully Martin just gives up.

  • All in.

  • He bluff shoves!

  • Or he just blasts off.

  • Probably not going to work.

  • Quick call from Colman.

  • And Jacobson's out!

  • Yeah, you probably got me, huh?

  • Let me just calmly take a second before exiting this 50K

  • tournament.

  • Nice hand.

  • Martin Jacobson, the eternal bridesmaid
