- From Playground Poker Club in Kahnawake, Quebec, this is Poker Night in America. (upbeat jazz music) (chips crashing) What's up, guys, and welcome to Poker Night presents Party Poker Live at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal. We've got a brand new lineup for you tonight, and everyone is in for 10 grand, a 25/50 with an optional straddle. - [Dealer] Straddle 100. - It's gonna look super good on TV.
- This is easy, big blind John. - What did you have John, two sixes? - [Announcer] Action folds to Jon Duthie on the button, and we have a straddle in play. - Straddle 100, yeah. - Chartier straddling it up to 100 dollars under the gun.
- Okay, okay. (upbeat jazz music) - And Jon Duthie's gonna make it 250 on the button with ace five, off suit. - It's the '09. - He doesn't remember. He doesn't know who you are free spin bonus new zealand.
- Of course I do now. - [Man] Eight hundred. - Just be polite. - I'll have a look. - [Dealer] Call.
- What's my range? (laughing ) - Pretty wide. - [Announcer] And Duthie is gonna make a pretty late call here. - You've got the home advantage.
- [Man] Six. (distant chattering) - [Announcer] Duthie, having none of it, thinks he might be up against a bluff. Gonna call and take it away on some later streets. - [Dealer] Check. - You've played some of that John, and now you're gonna try and nick it. (laughing) - You know me too well.
- [Announcer] Duthie bets 1200 on the turn. He's essentially saying that he either has a jack or some kind of stronger king. Those hands aren't too likely. Chartier decides to call. - I like it.
- Six pair is the board and both players now have jacks and sixes with an ace kicker. Why settle for half though, when you can go for the whole enchilada? And Duthie's firing the river, 1600. - Sam, just do this.
- Yeah. - You're tryna pass, yeah? Too late then. - John, you're a beast.
- Duthie with a little power poker here out of the gate, showing these young guys what's up. Poker night is brought to you by Sit & Go 2.0.

- Can I get a cocktail? - Duthie looking to ride the hot streak, ace, jack, just gonna call. Wouldn't mind maybe seeing a three bet here against Matt's open, but call is also acceptable. Yong decides to take flop as well in the small blind. (poker players chattering) - Now we got a pot.
- Five what, hundred or five thousand? - Five thousand. - [Announcer] Always good to let your opponents know how much you're playing. (poker chips clicking) Jack, eight, three, two clubs. Yong flops the nut flush draw.
- [Dealer] Five hundred. Call. - You and me, eh? - Heads up. (distant chattering) - [Dealer] Call.
- Duthie calls once again. The ace on the river improves both players' hands, but it's a much better card for Duthie, who now is top two. Yong improves the top pair and bets 2000, thinking it's likely good, but unfortunately, it is not. - All in.
- Tough spot right out of the gate here for Rob Yong. Improved the top pair, tried to get some value. And you hear the two words you just don't wanna hear.
- I don't think I'm winning. - Oh yeah. - You might be. - I'll take a-- - Did he hit your ace on the river? Ace of clubs. - I have ace ten.
- Ace ten of clubs? - No, just ace ten. - Just ace ten? - Is that winning?
- What am I gonna say? Actually you have ace ten. You bet out on that board. If you don't have ace ten of clubs, what could you possibly have?
I think you've got eight three. That's more like it. - Are you beating eight three? - That's more like it, eight three.
- Are you beating eight three? - Look at the board man, look. (poker chips clicking) Two pair. - [Man] Call.
- Ace, jack. - [Announcer] Quick early double for Duthie, making moves and the hot streak continues. Yong won't re-buy though to get back into the action.
- Matt Glantz straddles this to 100 dollars under the gun. Yong wants to make it known, hey, I can stack anyone of you at any point, reloads to 50K. - Gimme the 25.
- I think if you miss the one, you give it to the dealer. - [Announcer] And Elliot Smith wakes up with ace, king here in the big blind. Matt Glantz looks down at ace, queen suited in the straddle and doesn't even debate playing.
That is a very conservative play pre-flop. - Now it looks bad if I play the hand. It looks like I saw the hand before I straddled. I straddled each time. - [Announcer] We're taking a three way flop after we get two calls. If you've got ace, king, this is your worst nightmare for flops.
Middling board, connected flush draw. - I'll tell him I make sure. - I'll tell him. I like that sell but-- - If he slows up the game, we'll just get rid of him. - [Announcer] This is some Hollywood-ing from Mike. - You know that's my board, don't ya?
- I'm gonna get there though, but alright I fold. - [Announcer] Throw 'em in the muck! (upbeat drums music) - Guys, you can't win by folding, you let me steal too much. - Welcome back to the Playground Poker Club, where Rob Yong is double straddling to take us back down to the action. (poker players chattering) Poker night is brought to you by Kimo Sabe Mezcal.
- And then they'll start getting busy. - Mike's just surveying the situation. - Then he won't have any chips by then. - Then it becomes like a mathematical genius thing. (laughing) - Really?
Okay thanks a lot. (laughing) - Oh, you're re-raising? - Yeah, yeah. - [Announcer] And the price of poker is going up. 2100 dollars to go. Certainly on the small size for a re-raise.
Yong reaching for chips. He's coming in for the call with the ace, queen suited. - [Dealer] Two thousand one hundred.
- Let's go boys. - You get in the middle of this? - Well he's in the middle of it. (laughing) - Interesting. This is interesting. - [Announcer] Ace, four, deuce.
Huge flop here for Chartier. Flops top pair and the nut flush draw. - Check.
- And Duthie, despite having, by far, the best hand pre-flop, - Seventeen. - is drawing to only a single queen now in the flop. Discipline check fold here, though, from Duthie.
And you know what, honestly, Yong's hand in this spot is certainly under-repped. It looks like he has a weaker holding when he checks on the flop. Hard to imagine he has a hand as good as ace, queen. Off suit nine changes nothing. In fact, this is one of the most brick cards that we could even get.
Basically no hands have improved. (distant chattering) (knocks table) - Check. - The board bricks off in a very safe way for Yong. He has to know his ace, queen is virtually always good and goes for some value to the tune of 5000 dollars. - You look in pain. - I don't think I can fold.
- He might've hit your four. - [Announcer] See, ace, queen can be played, Matt. You maybe wanna add that one into your arsenal. - Sorry I'm not after you.
I'm after him. (laughing) Apologies. John Duthie bumps up to 300 dollars and you might be asking yourself, why don't we know what he has? Well, the answer is, he doesn't know what he has either. - You don't have to play every hand Rob. - [Announcer] Not sure if Yong picked up on this, but he's re-raising with a king, nine.
- That could've got brutal from here. I would've got hurt. - I'll let you hang yourself.
Careful, I don't wanna see your hand. - And Duthie taking a flop. Still has not looked at his cards. Not a good flop for Yong, but when you're up against two random cards, you can't feel that bad. - [Dealer] One thousand five hundred.
- We still do not know what John Duthie has here. - Did you win that hand? - Now would be a pretty reasonable time to check, but Duthie is a man of instinct. Sometimes you just have to call.
- I would've tried to peel a card out but-- - Six of hearts on the turn. Will Yong continue firing? (poker players chattering) - [Man] Check. - You checking or you raising? - Now would be a nice spot for Duthie to go for a stab. - I check, I check.
- [Man] Check. - I know what he's like. Usually I'll bet with marginal hand, then he'll just come straight back at me. - [Announcer] River jack pairs the board. Yong has not improved. He still has just king high, but will he take a stab at the pot?
And honestly, we don't even know if he has the best hand or not, because we still do not know what John Duthie has and it is the river. - [Man] Check. - Yong checks it over to Duthie, - Three and a half.
- who bets 3500. (distant chattering) (poker chips clicking) And Yong makes the call. - I don't know. I haven't looked.
- Well, let's find out what you've got, Duthie. - Four. - Okay, that's not good. - And a three. That's also not, I believe we have a term for that in the biz, it's called the nut low. - Wow.
- Yong must have immediately picked up on the fact he didn't see his cards. Otherwise there's no way you can make that call with king high. Pretty bold play to not look at your cards pre-flop. Don't know if we're gonna see too much more of that, and Matt Glantz wakes up with the second best hand in no limit hold 'em, pocket kings. Now, Duthie has seen his hand here, and it's not a particularly good one. - [Dealer] Raise nine hundred.
- He'll never fold. - Never. He's coming after you. - We'll have to get a heads up. - Yong cold calls the three bet with big lick.
