Lots more about this on Phil’s Twitter

I will give DNegs credit for being open about his wins and losses. He has done a lot of good for the game of poker over the years.

Forgot that I saw Helmuth is crushing the Hu thing a few days ago and didn’t know where to post it.

I guarantee that situation confused us all when we started playing. Seems like totally standard new player confusion. It’s not immediately intuitive.

I’ve had to explain that same situation in family dime/quarter games usually with people not believing me that the 55 doesn’t win here. You’re more than welcome to come play in the games. Although usually hold em is only played every few orbits. Most of the time we’re playing some godawful draw or stud with every card wild and people making 5 of a kind and royals like no ones business. Or even some non poker games like burn it.
