WPH #461: QUADS & $270,000 In The Middle! [BRUTAL Poker Hand]

Fireworks were bound to happen when Sam Trickett rivers a full house against Dan Colman’s quads in this high stakes cash game. But can Trickett find a way to not go broke?

Jonathan discusses the merit on using specific hands to lead with multiway, particularly on flops that you think will get checked around at a high frequency. He also discusses how you should look to raise more when you are playing deep stacked with hands that are strong but have an easy opportunity to be outdrawn.

Jonathan talks about what he believes the optimal river raise size should have been for Dan Colman considering Trickett’s range to bet into multiple people, bet big on the turn and continue for half pot on the river. It will be strong full houses/straights or bluffs that would fold to any raise size. This is why Jonathan believes Colman could have used a larger raise size and still been paid by all of Trickett’s value hands on the river.
