WPH #505: Would YOU Believe Rampage Poker?

Rampage Poker is no stranger to monsters, be that monster pots, monster hands, or monster punts! Playing on Hustler Casino Live during a game of ‘Win The Button’, Rampage flops trips in a four-way pot and is delighted to see Jibrael lead into him; how will the poker vlogger win the maximum from this amateur player?

When you have a medium strength hand you should try your best to control the size of the pot by using smaller bet sizes. You do not want to unnecessarily bloat the size of the pot as you will often find yourself putting in a lot of money with either the worst hand or a hand that is very vulnerable to being outdrawn!

Ethan Yau, a.k.a Rampage, is a popular YouTuber and poker player. He has over 280,000 subscribers on YouTube and has won over $2,300,000 in poker tournaments, including a $900,000 win in a December 2022 World Poker Tour (WPT) High Roller at the Wynn.

Jibrael Hindi is introduced as an amateur poker player from America. He is a lawyer and professional bodybuilder. He has played over 10 times on the stream, mainly playing $25/$50/$100, but occasionally going up to higher stakes. He is over $69,000 in profit on Hustler Casino Live.

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 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 most notable poker players to have appeared on the show are Phil Ivey ‘The Tiger Woods of Poker’ ‘RaiseOnce, Tom Dwan ’durrrr’, Phil Hellmuth ‘The Poker Brat’, Chris Moneymaker, Doug Polk ‘WCGRider, Garrett Adelstein ‘Gman’, Tony Guoga ‘Tony G’ and many more.

The table is playing ‘Win The Button’, which means the player who wins the previous hand will be the button for the next hand.

🔍 Pre-Flop Action: Starting from under the gun and yet to win a chip during the stand-up game is Mike X with KQ of hearts, who opens to $300. It folds around to Mariano in the small blind and decides to call with 64 of hearts, prompting Jibrael to join the action with pocket sixes from the big blind. Rampage, also yet to win a chip during this round of the stand-up game, calls with Q8o in the straddle as they head to the flop four-way.

💸 Flop – 8d 8s 2h: The flop comes with two eights, which is gin for Rampage. After Mariano checks from the small blind, Jibrael takes the initiative in the hand and fires out $1,000. Rampage calls with his trip eights, while Mike X folds his two overcards and backdoor flush draw. Mariano quickly folds, leaving just two players that head to the turn.

💣 Turn – 2c: The turn brings a second deuce, creating a double-paired board and giving Rampage a full house, ensuring he will scoop the entire pot. Despite this, Jibrael makes an interesting choice to continue his aggression with his two pair and bets $3,000. Rampage, with eights full of twos, makes the call as they head to the river.

🌊 River – Jd: The river brings the jack of diamonds, adding another overcard to Jibrael’s pair of sixes. Undeterred, Jibrael bets $3,000 again. Rampage, still holding eights full of twos, now springs into action and raises to $20,000. Jibrael doesn’t immediately throw his hand into the muck as he notices Rampage is still in the stand-up game. Will this extra bit of information cause the bodybuilder to make a huge mistake? You’ll have to watch the entire poker video to find out!

WPH #504: He Said “I CALL” & FOLDED! [Brad Owen Is SHOCKED!]

Nobody likes to feel like they have been angled or hustled at the poker table, including poker vlogger Brad Owen. In this crazy hand, Brad’s opponent leaves his fate up to the flip of a coin! But might a careful choice of words have been a cunning way to trick the poker pro? You decide!

When playing deep stacked cash games and you have a draw to the nuts, you generally do not want to fold, even when facing a huge bet that may not give you the correct odds to continue. If stacks are deep enough and you are playing against a loose opponent you will have great implied odds to double up should you hit your draw.

Brad Owen is a World Poker Tour (WPT) ambassador and co-owner of The Lodge Card Club in Texas, he is a very successful YouTube poker vlogger with over 715,000 subscribers. His YouTube channel has had over 174,000,000 views. Primarily a cash game player Brad has started playing more poker tournaments since the start of 2022. His lifetime total live tournament winnings are over $790,000. His biggest cash for $152,266 came in December 2023 when he finished 7th in the $50,000 WPT Alpha8, during the WPT World Championship at the Wynn, Las Vegas.

The Bellagio poker room is a stylish 7,000 square feet space that houses 40 tables and two high-limit areas, the most prominent of which is the Legends Room – an exclusive two-table enclave named to honor poker’s greatest players. This room was previously known as Bobby’s room, named after the legendary poker player Bobby Baldwin.

🔍 Pre-Flop Action

With blinds at $5/$10, Brad Owen raises to $30 from middle position with K8 of spades. Both the small blind and big blind choose to call, resulting in three players heading to the flop.

💸 Flop – As Th 2s

Both blinds check to Brad, who has flopped the nut flush draw, he fires out a standard continuation bet of $50. The small blind now reaches for chips and throws out a check-raise to $200. After the big blind folds Brad decides to call with his nut flush draw.

💣 Turn – 3h

The 3 of hearts on the turn isn’t a spade that Brad was looking for. The small blind continues his story, putting out a nearly pot-sized bet of $400. Brad, who still thinks he has the correct implied odds, makes the call, hoping to river a flush.

🌊 River – Js

The river jack of spades completes Brad’s king-high flush, giving him the nuts. Now, the small blind decides to slow down and check. Brad, after some deliberation, decides to bet $1,200. Will the small blind make the call? He resorts to flipping a coin to determine the fate of his $1,200. But was this a ploy to angle Brad & try to get more information? Watch this poker video to find out and make your own decision!

Filmed in Seoul, South Korea and hosted by experienced poker broadcaster Ali Nejad, Game of Gold combines high stakes poker with survival reality TV. Over the course of the 12 episodes, the sixteen participants competed across various poker formats, including Sit & Go’s, Heads-Up games, Indian Poker and a standard tournament poker game.

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.

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?
