I’ve been too busy to do many interesting blog posts lately, but I plan on doing some more in-depth televised poker analysis soon, on the level of what I did with the Pius Heinz WSOP 2011 footage. For now, I’ll just post this video where it seems that Chris Moneymaker has a really good live read on his opponent Chris Oliver. This isn’t just an interpretation; Moneymaker actually tells his “mental coach” Sam Chauhan that this is true (which is a surprising thing for him to do on video, in my opinion).
I haven’t analyzed this much yet, but if I do, my analysis will involve finding more footage from that event that led up to this string of hands, to get more history on what Moneymaker might have been seeing. I’d love to get feedback from anyone who thinks they know what it is that Moneymaker might have been seen from Oliver.
