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.

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.
