Jason KOON with the NUT FLUSH in a $25,500 Poker Tournament!

Texas Holdem Tips Video Source & Information:

A mouth watering $1,095,740 was awaiting the winner in this tournament! In this hand, the two biggest stacks tangle in a spot that could be disastrous for either of them with 7 players still left, 5 of which had smaller stacks.

Jason Koon, who has built a huge name for himself as one of the best tournament players in the world, takes on Niklas Astedt. Astedt is a crusher in his own right having amassed over $8,000,000 in tournament winnings on GGPoker alone!

When the nut flush meets a boat, for sure all the money is going in, right?

The stakes were bumped up last weekend from $10,300 to $25,500 as part of GGPoker’s Spring Festival and it attracted all of the big names in the poker industry.

  1. What would YOU do with J♠ 9♠ on the river?

    Your Stack (LJ): 4,545,927

    Their Stacks (CO): 4,537,427

    Pot: 894,000

    Board: Q♣ J♣ 9♣ J♦ 8♣

    You check, CO bets 480,000

    A) Fold

    B) Call

    C) Raise to 1,400,000

    D) Raise to 4,545,927 (all in)

  2. You keep mentioning that the shallow increase in payout incentivizes people to "not lose all of their chips", and I'm wondering what the thought process behind that is? I would think that a shallow payout structure makes players more ambivalent to getting knocked out because they'll still make a good sum relative to the next level. Is that bit of advice specifically for big stacks, or for all players at the table?

    I suppose a counter to my argument is that you want to be MORE aggressive when there is a more SEVERE payout jump between places for a few reason:
    – Other players are going to probably be over-folding due to the higher stakes and you can take advantage of that
    – Winning some coin flips and chipping up gives you a fighting chance of hitting the top places with the much larger payouts instead of starving out in 4th-7th for marginal returns

    I imagine being aggressive in these steep payout structures means you either do terribly or really well, but overall make more money on average. I'm just curious why that logic doesn't also translate to a more shallow structure? By this logic it seems you'd rather get 4th-6th a bunch than get 9th then 2nd then 8th then 2nd. Averaging the payouts from placing 9th and 1st consecutively vs 4th and 5th consecutively, both formats still definitely favor going big and sometimes falling flat and other times winning big.

    I'm sure there's something I'm missing, so if you or someone else would be able to explain it to me that would be very helpful! Thanks for another fantastic video!

  3. I'd prob bet around 2/3 pot for value against flushes, trips, straights (or two pairs like AQo, if they are calling really light?). fold to big raises (bigger FH and straight flushes), and think that someone wouldn't choose that spot to bluff since I definitely could have the nuts if they didn't. small raises would be crying calls from there, I'd say.

  4. This guy treat's 96k like it's peanut's… No buddy 1st place isn't around 1M… It's approx. 1,1M!

  5. Before any action I am checking. Once he bets 480k I would most likely call that. Understanding that there are still 7 left and I dont want to get into any fight with another big stack – just yet.
