Deuce-Four works down under

The first thing I found when logging onto Twitter this morning was Kevmath alerting me that The Mighty Deuce-Four had won a key hand in the WSOP-APAC High Rollers tournament. I quickly looked up the live updates (here) and found this:


As I write, Cheong is heads-up for the title, with the chip lead.

Isn't that basically the same hand as in the final match in "Rounders" when Mike McDermott figures out KGB's tell?

Yes. The hands and flop are identical (in rank anyway). See comments on this post:

I read an update on the pokernews app, and later found it here http://www.pokernews.com/news/2013/04/philipp-gruissem-wins-2013-wsop-asia-pacific-50k-high-roller-14752.htm, where it was referred to as "the mighty 4 2" (sic)

Thanks. Weirdly, that story says that the 2-4 on the A-3-5 flop made the "second nut straight." I wonder what the author thinks the nut straight would have been.

Not sure if they changed the report, but it says he made the second nut straight. This is also wrong as he made the 3rd nut straight after 6-7 and 6-2
