Wow! Could you EVER make this play?

May 29, 2013

We’re used to seeing some extraordinary plays in our major series like SCOOP, but sometimes a player does something that takes our breath away. Step forward Sami ‘Lrslzk’ Kelopuro, who pulled off a masterstroke during this hand in the $21,000 SCOOP High Roller.

As you watch the hand play out below, keep in mind that this is a heads-up contest, both players have a wide range as a result – and both will be suitably aggressive. What would you do in Kelopuro’s shoes?

Yes, that was Shaun Deeb commentating on the hand for “That really should be talked about as one of the greatest hands of poker… those hands you always hear about,” he said. “That is poker on a level I’ve never seen.”

Coming from one of online poker’s tournament legends, that really is saying something.

So, a round of applause to Kelopuro, one of the best players to have come out of Finland. We bet mrGR33N13 will be feeling a little, er, green when he watches it.
