    great example of pot control. Both Daniel and Vanessa knew that they could be way ahead or way behind and I like their checks on the turn/river. Alot of players, especially online would fire the turn and lose out on the river to a better hand.
    She's worried about him having a flush, since Daniel likes opening pots and playing pots with any suited cards that can make a straight too. He's worried about her having a big diamond.

    The play that I did NOT like in the hand was Jensen call/folding preflop with A9 off. If you're going to call the first bet, then you need to call the raise, to get any credit at all. Personally, I'd muck it, as I'd want to have a straight draw or flush draw with the A, to call an UTG raise.
