Jacks vs. air. The hand that the kids were talking about last week involved Doug Polk and Alec Torelli. Polk's 8-6 (suited) were up against Torelli's pocket Jacks. The two clashed during a session of $25/$50 NL at the Bicycle Casino outside Los Angeles. The table was streamed for Live at the Bike, where the two involved in a pretty sicksational hand, in which Torelli made a sick-sick hero call on the river.
Polk discussed exactly what happened in one of his latest videos. He gave a thorough and detailed explanation of his decision making on every street with rags. If you're a beginner or advanced player, this bit of cash game strategy discussion is something you should not miss.
