WPH #481: Chris Moneymaker CRUSHES This AMATEUR Poker Player!

Join Jonathan Little as he reviews a poker hand played by the legend himself and the reason for the 2003 poker boom! It’s Chris Moneymaker, yes that’s his real surname.

Jonathan discusses how it is important to know your preflop ranges so that you do not get into too many tricky spots! Playing a hand like JTo from early position facing an early position raise should be avoided! Jonathan also believes that Moneymaker’s call from the small blind with QTo is a little too lose due to it being a 3 blind game. Moneymaker now has 2 players to act behind him that could potentially squeeze him out of the pot.

When you are playing in multiway pots you do not want to use a large bet size because it indicates that you believe you have a range and/or nut advantage which is extremely hard when there are so many players in a pot.

Jonathan also breaks down the thought process that you should have on the river in a multiway pot when you hold the nuts. There are certain ways when playing out of position that you can maximize your earnings. In this particular instance Jonathan completely agrees with Moneymakers check on the river as he is likely to make more money this way rather than if he were to lead.
