John Cynn and Tony Miles squared off for the 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event title in what turned out to be an epic heads-up showdown. On the final hand of play, Tony Miles made an extremely gutsy move and put his tournament life on the line with a pair of eights. John Cynn, who had Miles covered by a decent margin, had flopped trips but wasn’t ready to make a quick decision.
Looking back on this moment right now, how do we feel about John Cynn’s decisions in this hand? On one hand, you can argue that making a hand as strong as trips is never something you can fold heads up even when you’re playing for $8.8 million, but on the other hand, Cynn might have a long list of reads and mental notes on Miles’ play and from his perspective, this might’ve seemed like a highly unlikely bluff?
