    Default Brian Townsend Hand

    Recently saw this hand in Bt's blog and his comment was he couldnt find a fold. Is this a big spew 99.9% of the time? Granted I'm not on Brians level but I can't see how this is ever a call.

    Wanted to see it as cards so i can mull this over privately...
    - Luck of the draw & player observation will always rule the day...
    - For every strategy employed there is a counter strategy to balance...

    Durr was commiting himself to hand but if it's heads up poker i'd say there would be some bullets fired on a few boards with these two.

    When DUrr re-raises, he has to at least put him on a flush draw or trips, so he is weighing that up against his straight draw. At that moment, he has $13k in the pot which represents 1/5 of his starting stack. So he is not really pot-committed at that point.

    No he isn't his range is far weaker than that. He only kr trips is rubbish.

    I'd imagine one of his major worries about the hand other than the FD was also being over-wrapped. That would have been my major concern. Though he obviously deems himself to have significant equity vs his opponents range to continue.

    My thoughts exactly, and without flush outs wouldn't this be a fold?

    It's HU
    It's against Durrrr
    Effective stacks are approx 110bb

    I don't think any player at the nosebleed HU PLO games are ever bet-folding that flop. Pair + Wrap = money goes in.
