Not really a smart move. Player just gave away to much info. He had a straight, and could not have a flush. Made it easy for the opponent. Opponent could even fold a hand like a set or two pair, if he had this type of hand. Even worse, he knew his small flush was good, and he could extract more money.

That was a very bi and silly mistake. If he hadnt done that, the outcome could have been way different, with him losing less probably.
The moment he showed that three, the other player knew he had not a flush and that his seven high flush would win.
Lets see if he is going to repeat this move again in his life Smile

Reporter should be ask him what was his reason, lol. Never hear player show his card before the hand finish. He is very rich maybe, so that huge amount of money is nothing for him, so he donate it Smile Smile

Actually I do not know what he wanted to do but the joke was very expensive, let the other follow his game, are things that happen, but the letters are for yourself is the essence of the game, let's hope the lesson learned

of course this is a very stupid action ... maybe the player wanted to intimidate the opponent but he did not succeed .... very often the excessive bravado comes out as a result of big problems .... it is necessary to be more modest in their actions ... and then it will be possible better

When you do not have data about this player, you can not know what's in his head. Maybe he thought his opponent has a straight, make a bluff or maybe this man has memory loss. there are other options such as headache, stomach or boredom. It would be best for someone to ask him what happened there.

An interesting decision by Mr Bitcoin Yoda (incidentally, what a fantastic name). You wouldn’t find your run of the mill Joe sowing a card at such a stage of a game, regardless of the stakes, in my humble opinion and experience. As it is, Mr Yoda is now becoming world famous, even if he hadn’t previously been. Nice strategy don’t ya think!

I cannot see why anyone would want to show a card at anytime of a hand. When he did show the card, it did become a very good opportunity to make a bluff and i can see the reason why he called after the big raise

This is a mistake that not even new players are making.
And playing a live game at this level, it means he is not new to this.
Who knows what he was thinking and ended up doing this move.
Maybe he was absolutely sure he would win the hand ?

He had flopped the nuts, and may have been under the impression that he would be ahead, even if turn and river changed the picture. But we don't know the action on the earlier streets, so are in a limbo.

probably just so he thought ... when in the hands of a good card, then not a very strong player thinks only of his good card and does not suppose the thought that the opponent can have a better map .... this is certainly a big mistake .... and in eventually he paid for this mistake ... Big Smile

Here is the possibility that he thinks his opponent has a straight, and he paid too much for that hand. The respective player who pay considered at that moment a 3 or a bluff. Probably the player who won the hand is a great bluffing player. Things like this hand can happen.

Bitcoin Yoda may not be wealthy for so long if:
- he keeps playing this way, showing off cards randomly helping his opponents to make their decisions easily
- bitcoin crashes a couple more time in the near future...
