WPH #499: He MEGA TILTS After Doug Polk Does THIS!

In this poker hand at The Lodge Card Club, Doug Polk, aka ‘WCGRider,’ is flexing his speech play skills in a bid to manipulate Mike D. The question is, will his silver tongue do the trick?

When you have a tough decision, and your opponent starts talking to you, it is because they are trying to talk you into what they want you to do. When an opponent speaks very clearly, they are usually not bluffing, but if they struggle to put a sentence together, they are more than likely bluffing.

Doug Polk ‘WCGRider’ is the owner of The Lodge Card Room along with Brad Owen and Andrew Neeme. Doug has over $9,500,000 in live tournament earnings and 3 World Series Of Poker (WSOP) bracelets, including a win in the $100k Super High Roller for $1,600,000.

Not too much is known about Mike D, but he is introduced as an amateur poker player who has played a few times at The Lodge.

In early 2022, poker professionals Doug Polk, Brad Owen, and Andrew Neeme joined forces to acquire a controlling stake in The Lodge Poker Club & Card Room, which happens to be the largest poker establishment in Austin, Texas. This exclusive poker club, accessible only to its members, boasts an impressive array of amenities, including over 80 poker tables of cash games and tournaments, operating round-the-clock. Additionally, The Lodge provides an inviting ambiance with 40 large-screen TVs, allowing poker club members to enjoy sports entertainment while playing poker or while relaxing in the cozy waiting area. The live poker stream includes commentary from Skull Mike and Slick Rick, who have been long-time regulars at The Lodge. They provide viewers with strategic insights, complemented by a perfect blend of humor.

The Lodge Live Stream has had a variety of different poker players coming to play on stream, these include; Doug Polk ‘WCGRider’, Alex Foxen, Dan Cates ‘Jungleman’, Ben Lamb, Bill Perkins, Brad Owen, Andrew Neeme, and Nik Airball.

🔍 Pre-flop:

Everyone folds to Mike D in the small blind who looks down at A5 of clubs, he opts to call the huge $400 double straddle. Doug Polk peeks down at A8o in the big blind and follows suit with a call. Next to act is Alex in the under the gun straddle with K4o, he senses weakness from his opponents and raises to $2,400. This doesn’t deter Mike D or Doug as they both put in the call as they head 3-way to the flop.

💸 Flop – As 4s 2s

The ace-high monotone flop is incredibly wet but no player has a spade. Mike and Doug check their top pairs over to the preflop aggressor Alex, who fires out a continuation bet for $3,300. Both Mike and Doug make the call to see the turn card.

💣 Turn – 3s

A fourth spade arrives which gives Mike D a five-high straight, he checks again over to Doug who also checks. Alex chooses not to double-barrel this turn and checks to see a river.

🌊 River – Tc

After a ten comes on the river, Mike D has the chance to scoop this huge pot with a straight if he can get to showdown. He checks for a third time to Doug, who knows that his pair of aces probably isn’t good, fires out a big bet of $11,400. After Alex swiftly folds, the action is back on Mike D. As Mike D looks like he is about to throw in the call to win a pot of almost $40,000 Doug opens his mouth! But what does Doug say? Will it encourage a call or a fold from Mike D?

WPH #498: Could YOU Make This Fold???? [Game of Gold]

Have you ever wondered how chess superstar Alexandra Botez would fare in a poker tournament? Well, here’s your chance as ice hockey legend Deryk Engelland puts her in a tough spot on the river!

When you are playing in a large pot and you have a short stack you should be aware that it is usually the best play to shove all-in with a poker hand that is likely good but very vulnerable to being outdrawn.

Alexandra Botez is a 28 year old American-Canadian chess player, she became a five-time Canadian National Girls Champion and won the U.S. Girls Nationals at age 15. Recently, she has appeared on both poker cash games and tournament poker streams, one of her first appearances was on the Hustler Casino Live stream with MrBeast, Ninja, Phil Hellmuth ‘The Poker Brat’, Tom Dwan ‘durrrr’ and Alan Keating where she won over $500,000. She has over 1,430,000 YouTube subscribers and over 1,200,000 Twitch followers.

Deryk Engelland is a 41 year old Canadian former professional ice hockey defenseman. Engelland played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames and Vegas Golden Knights over his eleven-season career in the National Hockey League (NHL). Throughout his career, Engelland was best known for his physical play and fighting abilities.

The 2023 Enclave Celebrity Invitational was a $50,000 freeroll hosted in the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 72-entrant field included celebrities, content creators, professional athletes, business leaders and professional poker players. With the likes of Alexandra Botez, Josh Richards, Bryce Hall, Nik Airball, Pierson Wodzynski, Nick Austin, Andre Drummond, Princess Love, and many more battling it out for the $50,000 prize pool.

Neither player cashed in this event.

Freeroll – 2023 Enclave Celebrity Invitational – Results

1st: Qiyu Zhou ‘Nemo’ – China – $20,000 2nd: William Pulte – U.S.A – $10,000 3rd: Chris Grove – U.S.A – $5,000 4th: Brandon Marshall – U.S.A – $3,500 5th: Nathan Webb – England – $2,500 6th: Joey Hamilton – U.S.A – $2,000 7th: Manny Kess – U.S.A – $1,500 8th: Chase DeMoor – U.S.A – $1,000 9th: Steven Markowitz – U.S.A – $1,000

🔍 Pre-flop:

Deryk Engelland limps in with K9 of spades for 20,000 from under-the-gun +1. Following suit, Jessica Canseco in the cutoff takes a similar approach, limping in with K8 of diamonds; Nathan Webb is next to act in the small blind and completes with A8o, Alexandra Botez checks her option with AQo in the big blind and they go 4-way to the flop.

💸 Flop – Kc Qd Tc

Webb and Botez check the extremely connected flop to Engelland, who fires out a bet of 35,000 with top pair and a gutshot straight draw. Canseco, with top pair and a backdoor flush draw, makes the call, while Webb folds from the small blind. Botez, with second pair and a gutshot straight draw, decides to stick around to see the turn.

💣 Turn – Jc

The turn brings in the flush which now also gives Botez the ace-high straight; she checks again to Engelland, who bets 75,000 with the bottom end of a straight. Canseco folds her pair of kings, but Botez decides to just call with her straight.

🌊 River – Js

The board pairs on the river, and now the value of Botez’s ace-high straight shrinks even more; she checks for a final time to Engelland. He bets 90,000 with his bad straight which is enough to put Botez all-in. Back on chess superstar Botez with the A-high straight, she will surely call….right?

The rounds increased in amount, until the fourth ‘mystery’ round, where it was unknown how many gold coins were on offer.

WPH #495: ANDY STACKS Is FURIOUS!!!!!!

Is this an unspoken rule of poker streams that should just never happen? Andy Stacks is furious at the newcomer Eric who is gracing the popular Hustler Casino Live stream for the first time. What are your thoughts on what happens? Is Andy right or wrong?

Henry is introduced as a financial professional and has become a regular poker player on Hustler Casino Live. Eric was appearing for the first time on the show and had been invited by Saya Ono, little more is known about him. Andy Stacks is a well known professional poker player & GGPoker Ambassador originally from Taiwan who currently resides in Los Angeles, United States. Over the last decade, Andy Stacks has established himself as one of the most recognizable faces on live poker streams playing regularly on ‘Hustler Casino Live’ and ‘Live At The Bike’. Andy is known for his calm and quiet demeanor at the poker table and was given his nickname “Andy Stacks” from the monstrous towers of poker chips that are almost always in front of him.

Hustler Casino Live is a full-scale, high-value poker production. Close to a million dollars was spent transforming the casino’s high-limit poker room, the Crystal Room, into the set of this new state-of-the-art live poker show. Hustler Casino Live looks more like coverage of a TV broadcast sporting event and appeals to those beyond the poker community. Unscripted and unedited, they host regular poker streams such as ‘Max Pain Monday’ and ‘Thirsty Thursday’. Some of the notable poker players to appear on the show have been Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan – durrrr, Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker, Doug Polk – WCGRider, Garrett Adelstein – GMan, Tony G, and many more.

The Hustler Casino was founded by the late Larry Flynt. It has been operational since June 22, 2000. It is located in Gardena, California about 25km south of downtown Los Angeles. It has poker, table games, and slots.

This high stakes poker hand took place at the Hustler Casino Live casino in Los Angeles, California.

🃏 Preflop: The action starts with Henry who opts to raise with K9s from the cutoff, Will defends his big blind with QJo. Eric in the straddle looks down at pocket jacks aka the Jiggities and decides to 3-bet to $6,400. Both Henry and Will decide to call as all three of them head to the flop.

🔥 Flop – Kd Kc 9c: Henry couldn’t have really asked for a better flop as he cannot believe his eyes as he flops a full house! Will, who has a gutshot, decides to check to the preflop aggressor. Eric continues to tell his story of strength with a small continuation bet of $6,000. Henry correctly identifies that this is a spot that he should slowplay and elects for a call. Will folds in the big blind.

💪 Turn – Jc: The turn is an absolute disaster for Eric but he doesn’t know it as he now hits a full house too. Eric now thinks he is laying the trap as he decides to get tricky and check. Henry quite rightly wants to keep building a pot and sends out a bet of $15,000. Eric makes an easy call. He doesn’t want to scare his opponent away in case he is bluffing as he believes he has the hand locked up!

🚀 River – 2d: The river card changes nothing in their relative hand strength. Eric decides to check again, praying that Henry fires again. His prayers are answered as Henry shoves for $48,500 into the $62,500 pot. Eric snap calls and is shown the terrible news, his full house is no good!

WPH #494: Brad Owen BLASTS OFF With 72o!

Popular poker vlogger Brad Owen finds himself playing in a high stakes cash game and the 72o game is on! If he wins a hand with 72o then every player has to pay him $200 which is a huge $1400. Can Brad find a way to win with the worst hand in poker??

Get exclusive access to PokerCoaching’s Advanced Cash Game Course and much more over at https://PokerCoaching.com

Brad Owen is a WPT ambassador and co-owner of The Lodge Card Club in Texas, he is a very successful YouTube poker vlogger with over 700,000 subscribers. His YouTube channel has had over 172,000,000 views. Primarily a cash game player Brad has started playing more tournaments since the start of 2022, his lifetime total live tournament winnings is over $480,000. His biggest cash for $125,000 came in May 2023 when he came 4th in the $5,250 WPT Main Event in Los Angeles.

Ivey’s Room, located at Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, was established in 2010. Named after the legendary poker pro Phil Ivey, the high-stakes poker room quickly gained a reputation as a hotspot for professional and high-stakes players. Over the years, it hosted some of the most intense poker action in Las Vegas, attracting renowned players. In 2019, the room underwent renovations and rebranding as “Table 1.” Although no longer carrying Phil Ivey’s name, it remains a prominent venue for high-stakes poker and exclusive gaming experiences. Today, Table 1 at Aria continues to offer a luxurious and private poker setting for players seeking top-level competition and service in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

🔥 Brace yourselves for jaw-dropping action at the Aria Hotel & Casino’s legendary Table 1 in Las Vegas! In this $25/$50 cash game, poker sensation & popular vlogger Brad Owen unleashes an audacious play with the infamous 72o, the worst starting hand in poker.

🎉 The 7-2 Game: It is important to note that this table is playing the 7-2 game. Any player that wins with this hand and opts to show the table will collect a $200 bounty from each player, this creates extremely fun dynamics at the table as players will play extremely aggressively with this hand rather than just making the standard fold preflop!

🃏 Preflop: Brad Owen opens the action under the gun with a raise to $200 with the not so beautiful 72o. In an ideal situation everyone would just fold preflop for him to collect the easiest $1,400 of his life, but alas in a high stakes poker game that rarely happens and in this case he picks up two callers from the cutoff and button.

🔥 Flop – Qc 6d 3c: It’s very unlikely you will hit a good flop when holding the 72o and that is no different here as Brad flops absolutely nothing. This doesn’t slow him down though as he has his eyes on the $1,400 jackpot. He continues his story with a half pot bet of $400. That forces the cutoff to fold but unfortunately for Brad the button decides to stick around for the turn card.

💪 Turn – 8h: Brad Owen now only has to get through one player and continues betting this time for just over 2/3 pot as he fires $1,110 into the $1,575 pot. His prayers are not answered as the button calls once more.

🚀 River – 5s: The river provides some promise for Brad as he now has a card that blocks some straights. He decides to fire the third barrel and opts for a $1,700 bet. Will his opponent fold so that Brad can triumphantly reveal the 7-2 bluff and collect the $1,400 prize from his opponents? Watch this poker video to find out!

🃏 Pre-flop: With blinds at $1,000/$2,000 and a $2,000 big blind ante, the action kicks off with Robl who decides to make an interesting limp under-the-gun with his pocket queens. Tsang senses weakness in the hijack and opts to raises to $10,000 with his KJo. Xuan in the big blind looks down at A8s and decides that the price of poker needs to go up even further and bumps it up to $45,000! Robl now opts for the tricky limp-raise and fires it up to $120,000. Tsang sensing a trap decides to fold but Xuan came to gamble and decides to make a questionable call!

🌈 The Flop: 9s 6s 4s The flop is the most beautiful flop for Xuan as he has now flopped the nut flush. He decides to check in flow to the preflop aggressor praying that Robl will bet. His dream comes to life as Robl opts for a small 20% bet of $50,000. Both players are fairly shallow stacked after the pre-flop action so Xuan decides to put the rest of the money in and sets Robl all-in for $138,000. Robl who is now pretty much pot committed makes the call as the pot swells to a huge $529,000. He is quickly delivered the bad news but will the run out of the board help him ship over half a million dollars? Watch this video to find out!
