    I agree with Barry's commentary after the hand was over. His thought process makes perfect sense the whole way through the hand. I was really surprised that Cada didn't raise the flop because when 3 un-suited unders hit the board, I wouldn't want someone drawing at a straight without paying for it...... or at least make some sort of bet on the turn to not give Barry the lead in the hand. If there was an A on the board, I could understand the check, but not with all unders.

      actually I would love to hear joes thought process during this hand. ie: why he didn't raise on the flop and take the lead in the hand, and if he was floating, why not on the turn bet with that board texture. what was he putting barry on that he should be folding in that spot?

        He had to put him on J 10, AA or a set.... at least that's all I can think of. My guess is that he put him on J 10 suited.

            I hate this hand. Barry should be getting away from Hawaii (QJ is called that because you can afford a vacation there on the money you lose with it) on the pot 3bet from the BB.
            Then, Joe should have bet pot on the flop imo ..it will easily let him know if he's beat on the flop. I didn't see what Joe's stack was, but Barry's is such that a pot bet here will get him to fold or shove. Barry will put him on KK or AA then and will likely fold.
            Without seeing the river, I think Joe missed out on knocking Barry out here.
            Barry's reasoning on the play is right on though. Can't blame him for Joe's mistake.

              I too think barry played the hand well (considering how joe played it) I just think joe missed alot of value the way HE played that
