In Doug Polk’s first video since partnering with Poker Night in America, he reviews a hand played by Phil Hellmuth, aka the greatest poker player of all time (source: Phil Hellmuth).
Hellmuth begins the hand by declaring he will ‘‘3-bet light’’ if entrepreneur Kelly Winterhalter raises, before doing exactly that with 7-4 offsuit.
Yeah, you read that right, Hellmuth 3-bet with 7-4 offsuit.
Is he trying to get his opponent to make a costly mistake? Or is he setting himself up for failure?
As always, Doug Polk has the details.
Seems like the beginning of a wonderful friendship between Kelly and Phil.
Check back tomorrow for more video content from Doug Polk. See you then!
