Hey PSOers...what is your favorite poker moment? Discuss your favorite moment whether it is a tournament you were watching or playing. Is there a WSOP moment that you remember or a point in one you played that you knew that poker was what you wanted to do for the rest of your life?

Share these now and some of the best may be included in the next Weekly Roundup.

If you want to share these privately, you can PM me.

Excalibur in Vegas, 30 person, $25 tourney. When the green chips (25's) were taken off the table, I had a whopping 1 black chip left (100). 55 red, 55 black, AKs, AQo.... 4 straight double to quadruple-ups.... came all the way back to win from 1 chip!

Proves the notion of a chip and a chair totally correct.

One hand I will probably never forget is Toby Lewis's quad Q's against Andrew Robl's quad 9's at the World Open VI. The look on Timoshenko's face afterwards said it all, really.

actually, it was jack straus at the 1983? WSOP ME--someone correct me if i got the year wrong. he had 1 chip left that was "hiding" under a napkin. he thought he had been eliminated, but saw the chip and used it to come all the way back to win the tourney. now, u r required to have all of ur chips visible at all times.

my favorite poker moment comes from Poker After Dark. during one of the cash game episodes, the players were trying to get the "deuce 7" game going. for those of u who aren't farmiliar, if u win a hand with 2-7 and show it, u win a certain amount of money from each player. anyways, everyone wanted to do it except for chris ferguson. they tried and tried to get him to consent. normally they do it for $1000, but they lowered it to $500--still chris refused. finally, chris said he would do it for $200. well, that pissed everyone off. mike matasow even "jokingly" said something like "im ashamed i even know u" and "ur a cheap #^&^@" etc. etc.

well, a couple hands later, chris is dealth 2-7 and decides he's gonna play it and show the table if and when he won with it. he played the hand hard like he had AA or KK. only matasow came along to see the flop. chris bet the flop and turn accordingly. finally, with the help of the board texture, he made a big bluff on the river to get matasow off of two pair. chris rolls over the 2-7 and says "boy, i'm sure glad we're plaing that 2-7 game" LOL mikey boy was STUNNED. everything about his face was absoutely PRICELESS. the table was DEAD SILENT, except for esfandiari's quiet "wooooowww." unfortunately chris kind of ruined it by appologizing and saying "sorry mike, i had to do it" though i think that was for showing the hand and not playing it the way he did. it was one of the greatest poker hands of all time.

and btw, the 2-7 didn't hit the board at all. it was a complete stone cold bluff. i believe mike had J9 for a two pair. i think there was a queen and three to a suit on the board as well.
