Wait...you mean to tell me that there were two nines and an ace on the board...and the guy who folded had pocket aces?

There can't be a player like that in the entire universe.

The greatest read I've ever seen in a major poker tournament was by Carlos Mortensen.

He folded an ace-high flush when the board paired on the river...to a bettor who only bet half the pot.

Moneymaker's bluff back in the day was awesome/lucky...haven't those two since...

Yep - and to many pros out there, he ruined their game as they knew it.

Moneymaker sucked out time and time again during that WSOP.
I don't play poker much, but watch the WSOP every year, and there's a "little Moneymaker" in a lot of guys out there.
