Poker Video of the Week: Is He Really Considering a Fold Here?

Europe’s largest casino – the King’s Casino in Rozvadov - has recently partnered up with 888poker and as part of the celebration there’s a cash game festival with a star-studded line-up.

It’s called Celebrity Cash Kings and among the players are big names like Max Altergott, George Danzer, Igor Kurganov, Jesper Hougard, Thomas Bichon, Leon Tsoukernik and Liv Boeree.

But it was Tobias Reinkemeier who made the move of the week, as you will see.

We’re at the German-Czech border on the TV stage at the King’s Casino, where a series of high-stakes cash games is taking place this week.

There are both PLO specialists like Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Ronny Kaiser and Ismael Bojang and NLHE experts like Kurganov, Reinkemeier and Altergott.

In the first session the players agreed to play blinds of €50/€100, which resulted in several pots over €100,000.

There were plenty of interesting hands in this session and it’s well worth watching a bit more of it. However, there was one hand that simply stunned us.

And Then It Really Happens

Involved in this hand are Reinkemeier and the King’s own reckless and extremely loose amateur Scott Hanna. Pre-flop, Reinkemeier holds pocket aces while Hanna has his usual T-6.

Then the dealer opens a flop that doesn’t look very good to poker’s best hand. Reinkemeier – winner of more than $10 million in tournaments and all-time leader in the German money ranking – c-bets and gets rid of Tomovic, who was also involved pre-flop.

Hanna, though, finds an open-ender and comes along. There's already about €10,000 in the pot and the 5 on the turn doesn’t seem to change much. But it’s also not a very nice card for the aces.

Now Hanna takes the lead and bets €1,100, giving the world-class player on the other side of the table astronomical odds of 10-1. Reinkemeier surprisingly goes into the tank and, after a while, you start thinking “is he really considering a fold here?”

And then it really happens. Reinkemeier takes terrific odds and the best hand to produce a fold.
