I like a four bet. I love a four bet when it’s made with no hand specifically because the guy who made the three bet could very well be at it, and he is.

But a five bet made with even more of a no hand specifically because the guy who made the four bet might have been doing it in response to a weak three bet, well that’s enough to leave me speechless.

Plays like that are why I fall back in love with the game whenever you might get an inkling that you’ve seen it all before. And plays like that were fast and furious on the WPT London final table.

Remember the name Jake Cody. He’s on his way and there is nothing the poker world can do to stop him. And likewise heed the name Kristoffer Thorsson. For all I know, this guy might just be Isildur. Naah, Isildur couldn’t even hang with him.

It was so fitting that the final of the first WPT held in London ended up being a showcase of young British talent. And there was a whole load of British poker talent on the rail, cheering Jake Cody’s every raise and fold.

Goes to show you how highly everyone regards this young man with the black shock of hair underneath the coal black hoodie, and it also goes to show you just how much comraderie and spirit there is in the British poker camp these days. These are truly the golden days of UK poker.
