You don’t have to be a high-roller to appreciate this hand breakdown from one of the nose-bleediest players in the online game. Doug “WCGRider” Polk may not play one-house/two-house live, but in his own elemenet – the online arena – he’s willing to take on anyone at anytime. This includes one of the most feared names in the game Victor “Isildur1” Blom.
In this post for the Full Tilt Poker Blog, Polk gets put into a pretty sick spot holding a couple of aces and facing heavy pressure. It’s a candid analysis of his thought process and a detailed breakdown of how he read the hand. Incredibly interesting and informative stuff for the up and coming poker player.
“Is my opponent the type of player that is willing to put in 300 big blinds, at the highest stakes, against a tough opponent, on a complete airball?”
So, take a few minutes and read the hand history and see how Polk makes up his mind on what to do in this incredibly tough spot — it’s well worth it. It’s all here on the Full Tilt Blog.
