Poker is a game that requires extreme concentration, a sharp memory and honed bluffing skills to get ahead of the competition. In these next 5 videos, we’ll see absolutely none of that, as we take a look at the 5 stupidest fails ever seen in pro poker.
Baumann vs Balkin - You Lost Bro
Players Baumann and Balkin find themselves in a neck and neck game, which was so close that apparently both players couldn’t decide on who’d lost. In an embarrassing move, Balkin gets up to celebrate a little too fast, heading over to his supporting friends, who don’t hesitate to tell him to sit right back down.
Schwartz vs Butteroni - Schwartz’s Ill-Advised Tips
At the 2015 World Series Poker event, Schwartz was taken to task over giving player Butteroni some tips on how to play; whilst Butteroni was in a separate game against Negreanu. Because of his interference, the hand was dismissed and both players lost on the chance to win the pot.
In a later hand, Schwartz gives Butteroni a little more advice, calling time on Butteroni after only 2 minutes. What started as a petty payback for Schwartz, becomes one of the most awkward minutes in poker history, where the entire table turns against him and lets him know he’s wrong in the most passive aggressive way possible.
Tony G vs Hellmuth - Hellmuth Finds Out About Bluffing
Etiquette and competition come to a head in this hand between players Tony G and Hellmuth. When Hellmuth temporarily forgets that a big part of playing poker is: bluffing. After Tony G tells Hellmuth that he hasn’t looked at his cards and is playing a blind game, Hellmuth takes that as a good sign he’ll win the hand, only to be informed when he loses, that...
Hellmuth doesn’t take the news well, and is incredibly offended that he’s been lied to. Hopefully, it’ll teach Hellmuth a thing or two about taking people’s words at face value next time he plays a game where lying convincingly is often the key to success.
Alfredo vs Vincente - Double Fail Ends In A Twist
In this utterly stupid game of poker, player Vincente gets the fails off to a good start by not paying attention to the game and mucking his cards early. Apparently he thought everyone else has already folded. Upon realising that his competitor Alfredo hasn’t left the game yet, he goes back on that decision having already revealed his cards to the table. Alfredo looks set to win the game, having all the information he needs to make the perfect play, yet shocks us by one upping the earlier fail as he goes all in with a hand that has a 0% chance of winning. Apparently his memory isn’t as sharp as it once was.
MoneyMaker vs Pellegrino - I Thought It Was Your Turn
In one of the most confusing hands in a poker tournament, Chris MoneyMaker is waiting for his opponent Pellegrino to call his hand. During this time he goes for a stroll, chats to the camera guy and fidgets with his chips, before sadly informing Pellegrino that he has to call time on him, only to discover it’s been his play all along. Pellegrino had already made his play 5 minutes ago and had been patiently waiting for MoneyMaker to get on with his turn. It was worth the wait in the end, as MoneyMaker goes all in and takes the pot.
