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!

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!
