Is that a standard play by Aldrige? Standard button raise 4 handed from Gilb, I can see the check raise on Aldrige's part to get some information on where he stands and I can see Gilb's shove there representing a big ace and having the 35% er with the 2nd nut flush draw. Not exactly sure how much Aldrige had behind so maybe he was pot committed already when he check raised? I guess this is standard the more I talk it out, but damn ballsy call depending on what kind of image Gilb had.

These were the stack sizes before the start of Josh's hand:Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 anteSeat 1. Joshua Pollock - 5,325,000Seat 3. Will Failla - 3.375,000Seat 5. Ken Aldridge - 6,850,000Seat 6. Jeff Vertes - 8,175,000I am not sure if Aldridge's flop c/r is standard, but once he made that raise and Josh jammed, the pot was about 7,050,000. It was about 3,600,000 more for Aldridge to make the call so he was getting just about 2 to 1 to call. He made the call fairly quickly so he probably already decided that he was calling a jam while Josh was tanking to the c/r. They've played quite a bit together over the last couple days so I think Aldridge made the call believing that his hand had more than 33% equity against Josh's 3-bet jam range on that flop. After that hand Josh and many others agreed that Aldridge made a good call.GG Josh very nice run.

Do you really think he believed that? :club:

Yes.
Josh thought Aldridge was the most difficult opponent remaining when they were 4-handed and said Aldridge was a lot more knowledgeable about the game than he looked/acted. Aldridge also has a bracelet and we didn't think it was a "zomg i has top pair I call" but rather a well-thought out call (even though it was pretty much a snap call when Josh jammed he had thought about his decision while Josh was tanking).

Aldridge actually probably should've won after Josh got KO'd. Will had a huge suckout vs Aldridsge. He caught a runner runner flush vs Aldridge's AA. Will floated the flop with nothing, no draws or pairs and runner runnered a 8-hi flush.
