Have you ever played a hand that was perfect from a theoretical standpoint but the wrong decision in a given moment? The following hand between Doug Polk and LSG Hank at Hustler Casino Live is one of the most exciting hands from last year because it highlights an extreme contrast in style. What wins when a perfect GTO strategy collides with a maniacal river bluff raise? Find out here:

What This Doug Polk Hustler Casino Hand Demonstrates:

Poker is indeed far from solved and will forever main a rich, dynamic game because of hands like this. Even if you sat with the perfect GTO solution in front of you, you'd still be no closer to knowing whether LSG Hank was actually bluffing and whether to call with pocket aces in this particular moment. Theory and logic only lead you so far before a leap in intuition is needed.
