The “Pay Off Wizard” Phil Laak can read the tells of his buddy, “The Magician” Antonio Esfandiari. Antonio bets and Phil, after turning his 10 high flush over, reads him wrong and calls, only to immediately read his buddy again and realize that he has been slow rolled. Even before Antonio shows his winning ace high flush, Phil pushes the pot to the magician claiming no need to see his cards; but the rest of the players lay down side bets on whether Phil is incorrectly reading the magician.
How would you have handled this game? Would you have been the pay-off wizard, turning your cards over and pushing all your texas hold em poker chips to the magician in your group? Or are you the magician?
