Booth’s aggressive shove for $300,000 over Ivey’s $23,000 flop bet was enough to force Ivey to lay down KHeart SuitKDiamond Suit, earning him a nice pot and a lifetime worth of loose calls.

Brad BoothAt the time Booth was a regular in high stakes cash games, butting heads with the toughest players in the game. Card Player TV caught up with Booth after the High Stakes Poker hand aired to talk to him about poker strategy.

“In that situation when I got Phil to lay down the kings on High Stakes Poker I knew that Phil would just find a better spot. he would just say okay, let this bastard have this one and I’ll get he next one,” said Booth in the interview.

“Deepstack, big blind poker really comes down to picking your spots. It’s creating that image, that day, and knowing how they view you. Once you know that you are just in the reverse psychology game, and that is the strong part of my game.”

Isn't this guy dead broke? Sure haven't heard anything of him in long time. I remember the episode and bluff. Like Freddy Deeb predicted years ago on WPT televised event Gus will go broke within 5 years based on his play and considering he has lost over 20 million online Freddy's prediction is pretty Nostradamus like. I would think this booth guy is probably broke too or close to it.

I saw him playing iv Ivey Room last week, I think playing $100-$100. So broke he is not.

Funny story about this bluff though. He was being staked by some billionaire. When he saw on television the bluff he pulled on Ivey, he immediately stopped backing him.

Yeah pretty sure the One Drop guy backed him. I think they both from Canada and apparently had some bond. Good to see he is not broke as he seems like decent guy.
