The Winning Hands!
Monday 22nd – 8d-8h – this is probably the most pivotal hand in Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier’s career, he made the call with this hand when he was in a heads up session with Hafiz Khan. His hand won and it gave him the much sought after Triple Crown.
Tuesday 23rd – Ah-4s – This hand was actually a losing one. It occurred back in 2004 when David Williams actually finished as runner up to Greg Raymer in the WSOP Main Event. Each player actually hit a full house, except Raymer’s was better with his pocket eights.
Wednesday 24th – 7c-5c – This hand originally started out as a bluff by Victor Ramdin but it eventually led to him beating Joe Hachem for a tournament win of $500k.
Thursday 25th – 4h-4d – This hand netted Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov $1,500.000 million against his fellow Team Pro Daniel Negreanu in the PCA $100k High Roller. His opponent actually held pocket fives which were busted by the Russians pocket fours.
Friday 26th – Qd-Tc – Randy Lew managed to take down his biggest ever score during the APPT Macau to the tune of $3,772.000 after seemingly being written off as just an online player that could not cut it live.
Saturday 27th – 7h-Ks – This is the magical hand that turned Chris Moneymakers satellite qualification into the WSOP Main Event into a huge $2,500.000 payout as well as a bracelet and a world title.
Sunday 28th – 3d-2d – This is the new PokerStars Team Pro Isaac Haxton at his best, he used this hand to successfully bluff an opponent on a board that was paired, which eventually made his opponent fold.
