Are Pocket Fives a "Big Hand"? Not to Greg Mueller
Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante
After some preflop action, Greg "FBT" Mueller moves all in for about 60,000. His opponent tanks for a while before he folds. Mueller tells him, "Show me a big hand, and I'll you my hand."

His opponent shrugs and turns over 55. That's when the controversy begins.
Mueller refuses to show his hand, saying pocket fives is not a big hand. His opponent argues that pocket fives are a big hand in that spot.
Mueller offers him a $1,000 freeroll, saying that if he polls 10 random players in the room, asking if pocket fives are a big hand. If five out of the 10 players called pocket fives a "big hand," Mueller would give his opponent $1,000.
His opponent says, "I think it's a real low-rent move to not show your cards after I showed mine."
The argument continues for a while, with neither player appearing to convince the other.
