Ethan Yau aka ‘Rampage’ was playing a $1 Million game on Hustler Casino Live. During the match, the popular vlogger attempted a $618,000 bluff with ace-high, despite being up against a top set (queens)! Let’s see how the action took place.
Around four hours into the game, Rampage had 1.1 Million in chips when ‘Handz’ had a stack of 843K. However, all that changed when he battled for a pot against Handz with $1.1 Million on the line at Hustler Casino Live during the $1 Million buy-in game.
The hand started out with Yau raising the small blind with $9,000 while holding an A7s ♣. Handz, from the big blind made the call whilst keeping faith in his Ladies. The dealer presented J ♦ Q ♦ T ♣ and with that Handz flopped a set with his queens. Another player ‘Pav’ bets $15K which Rampage raises to $50K, and finds a caller in Handz.

‘Pav’ lays it down and the other two are left to fight for the pot which now stood at $144K. The turn brings 2 ♣, which gave Rampage a flush draw and sees him throw an overbet of $175,000. Handz makes the call yet again hoping that his queens would do the trick.
Rampage saw the 5s and understood the only way to save face was to bluff and he did it like a pro. The WPT Global ambassador bets 618K on the river which put Handz all in if he had to make that call. Only god knows what went into his Handz’s mind, as that overwhelming bet from Yau made him fold a hand he could have easily won. Also, a weird thought comes to mind, the possibility of was out of the way when 5s appeared on the river and Handz sat with pocket queens, if the fear of Rampage having a straight was so might why bother calling the 175K overbet?
With $1.1 Million now in the pot, Rampage was just one step away from making a historic pot on Hustler Casino Live. But for that Handz had to make that all0in call which never happened. But this hand could easily be one the best poker bluffs of 2023.
