Greatest levelling war ever. I love the way Hartigan shouts "She six-bet shoves!"

I was thinking about this hand when I snap-called a shove by TheLangolier the other day.

This hand is really interesting.... I saw a comment in youtube berating Kevin's call... While the call was questionable since Vanessa's shove had such a big fold equity (I think Kevin need to push 200k chip over the 70k he already invested to call).

But I think one of the lesson here for LAG is, when you widen your 4+ betting and shoving range such as Vanessa has done to her game, you widen your opponents shove call range as well....

I can't put who played better here though, both had great read on each other, and in the end their read was 'respected' with a coinflip hand....
