Bill Perkins known by his online poker name of GASTRADER has been playing in some nose bleed high stakes poker games on GGPoker lately when a crazy hand happened.
The pot went down against a UK poker player that has had a fair amount of cashes in the live scene, cashing for over $200,000 in total in tournaments, with his biggest win being nearly $50,000.
Bit2Easy is mainly a cash game grinder though, who has a history of playing as high as $50/$100 on Pokerstars. We would imagine though that he isn’t rolled for this game and is being backed, or selling action to some friends possibly to take a shot in a game with some recreational money at the table.
The UK Pro that appears to be based in Ireland right now 3-Bet to the wrong size, presumably meaning to make it $12,400 to go…. which would have been a pretty standard sizing for an out of position 3-Bet against a Whale like Perkins.
Instead, though, Lucas made it $124,000… to which Bill Perkins instant calls!
We later find out from the chat dialogue that Bill didn’t even spot the fact it was $110k too much and on the Flop wondered how the pot had gotten so big.
It’s hard to say what anyone would do in a spot where you have another $108,000 to play, but personally, if I had misclicked over half of my stack away pre-flop, I think I’d have to attempt to win the pot with an all-in on the Flop.
Lucas Reevers must have had a bluff in this spot though because he opted to just check-fold this flop.
Perkins added to the chat after the hand…”I’m High, So what just happened?” What a life, winning $125,000 whilst probably smoking on a boat somewhere and not even knowing what happened!
Giving $20,000 back as a gesture
Not many people would even consider giving a cent of this huge win back… regardless of how it went down.
However, Bill is such a cool guy that he just decided to punt back $20,000 to Lucas as a kickback for his mistake.
He typed in the chat “I’m going to raise then fold, so just raise” Perkins then made it $20,000 to go and folded showing he had a Ten on this board too, which was likely just the best hand.
