WPT’s Raw Deal host and professional poker player Tony Dunst‘s latest Tribune Media syndicated column takes a look at one of the defining hands during the heads-up match between Will “The Thrill” Failla and Ken “Teach” Aldridge at WPT Legends of Poker. Excerpt below:
“I anticipated a slowly contested match, as neither player is known for a reckless or especially aggressive style. My expectations were shattered only 10 hands into the match when a huge pot was created.
The blinds were $200,000-$400,000 when Aldridge made it $900,000 on the button and Failla called from the big blind. The flop came down Jc 5d 2h, and after Failla checked, Aldridge bet $500,000, which was called.
The turn brought a 9h, and again Failla checked. This time Aldridge opted for a much larger bet: $2 million. Failla called.”
