WPH #453: Folding Pocket KINGS Preflop?! [No Gamble, No Future!]

The action begins with Pollak setting the trap by just calling rather than raising. Cigliuti then decides to raise to $110 with pocket tens. When Eubank JR. looks down at pocket kings he decides to 3-bet to $420. Pollak then comes over the top with a 4-bet to $2,000, and Cigliuti folds. Whilst Eubank JR. is deciding on his next action Pollak decides to turn over both of his cards, revealing pocket aces. After a 40-second pause, Eubank JR. reveals his kings and decides to fold.

The players decide to rabbit hunt twice to see who would have won the hand had they managed to get all of the chips into the middle. On the first board, we see the 5d Th 2h Qs 2c, which is a blank for both players but Cigliuti would have won with pocket tens. On the second board, however, we see the 8s Kh 3c 3d 4c and Eubank JR. would have flopped a set of kings!

No Gamble, No Future began as a video podcast in January 2021 with Brent Hanks and Jeff Platt as the hosts. The show aired on Tuesdays across PokerGO’s YouTube and Facebook channels and they discussed poker, sports, and gambling. While the podcast was on break, No Gamble, No Future remained a popular PokerGO brand before it evolved into a cash game show to be aired on video streaming service PokerGO. The show features many prop bets such as winning with bluffs or cracking strong hands to encourage higher VPIPs and more action.
