If you know anything about Poker, even more so, Texas Hold'em . . .
Maybe after watching this . . .
You'll be laughing like a sick idiot . . .
Just like me.
This guy decided to tape himself playing online, doing play-by-play.
Not only is this guy on a tribute YTMND page, but this guy exists beyond the realms of YouTube videos of Party Poker and other internet nonsense.
This man played at a WSOP event.
Anthony "Tuff Fish" Guetti Takes a Bad Beat at the WSOP.
Apparently this man is talented enough and/or financially set enough to compete in such events.
Regardless of actual quality of player, this man is a patron saint for all those who get stuck in the pooper on hands that go to shit.
Maybe the lesson is . . . it's okay to fold. Pray you know when.

Also, upon further further review
Is how he starts saying (ostensibly) what cards are on the felt, and gets it totally wrong:
"Queen, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen."
Which is one more card than actually shown, and there's also no mention of the 4 that's on the felt, plus the mystical addition of a queen and a ten.
And he wonders why he loses.

strategy? poker gods . . . i'm due
I saw a couple other vids before this . . . and he was actually guessing ballpark on some hands what the other people had.
If it wasn't for the fact that people only called him pre-flop, maybe if they would have raised there would have been a pocket pair against him in there . . . or not, depending on how those people play (or maybe they know he's crazy so they just play calling station?).
After the flop, he was probably unwise to think that the 4 flush only applied for himself, clearly. By the turn, with the possibilities, he's got it made, but the people are still sitting in there with him. For what reason? They paid 40 to get there.
Even blind to the game, 2 people against . . . at that point he had about a touch over 50 percent chance to win the thing before the turn . . .
In this case, however, he seemed to be a bit slack-jawed and just ready to throw the chips out there . . . maybe so, percent on the turn went up to a bit over 90 percent . . . but the way he was reacting, it's almost like he was practically willing this thing to happen to him, mistaking poker gods to deem him due or something.
I think he went in too deep on his committal on the turn. Raised 10 pre-flop, 2 callers, bet pot, 2 callers, total in there was 120 and he had 121 left . . . with all that out there, bet-out of 100 really committed him no matter what was out there against him. Not a feeler bet, nothing.
The guy against him didn't have much stack, either, not much more on the table. When his opponent busted out the all-in, to do that on nothing would be a hell of a foolish player. Knowing nothing else but that island . . . to see an opponent do that . . . go all-in . . . "Tuff Fish" was right there, but the operator didn't connect the call in time for him to switch to the fold button.

Guetti may be the guy.
My amateur take on the game . . .
Very rarely does the perfect storm happen.
It's almost never going to be you with a royal flush, in a big stack, with 4-5 other guys with nice stacks holding hands you never want to fold (flush, straight, another straight flush). You know what I'm talking about . . . where you're the nuts and you know it but there are other outs making people some strong 2nd bests . . . and they start jumping the shit right in there for you to take . . . from all sides.
And this guy, Guetti? may be the name . . . the guy doing this vid . . . he doesn't apparently understand at times (going tilt) that when people are over-betting or raising dramatically, it's not always because they're bullshitting you . . . and it's not always because they have the best hand. Depending on situation, obviously.
He just seems to lose grip on his awareness at times, and those are the times that produce this comedy gold.
I'm an idiot (straight, straight flush, royal flush?!?!?) . . . but so is he. It's just awful when he goes on tilt.
