*laugh*

in the 2008 WPT event that Van Nguyen won (yay for the first female to ever win a WPT title), there was a hilarious moment where Van hit a pair of 7s on the flop and put Ethan Ruby all in on his short-stack when he had an open ended straight draw.

ethan ended up folding, which i felt was fairly questionable based on the chip stack he had compared to Van as the chip leader. What was hilarious was that after he folded, the WPT essentially did a "rabbit hunt", where the next cards to come were dealt by the dealer to a hidden cam which revealed that Ethan would have missed his straight. And after those cards were revealed, the commentators congratulated him, saying, "well, it's clear now that he made a good fold there!" or something similar to that.

which made me laugh out loud. i hope that the people that take comments like that to heart sit down on my table.

Clearly, skilled poker players make decisions based on future information.

How else can you play every hand optimally?
