But The Fat Lady Hasn't Sung Yet: Poker Player Starts Celebrating $1,000,000 Win Too Early

June 15, 2018

This is a video of World Series Of Poker player Sang Liu beginning to celebrate a $1,000,000 prize win over Roberly Felicio before the turn and river cards are even revealed on a near game-ending hand. Granted the odds were heavily in his favor, but of all people a poker player should know it's not over till it's over. And it wasn't over for Felicio, who managed to score the eight he needed to drop Liu's chip count to a twentieth of his own, and eventually go on to win the $1,000,000 purse. Me? I learned from a young age that you never celebrate until they're actually putting the gold medal around your neck. Or, in my case, pinning the purple ribbon to my chest.

Keep going for the video while I throw cards over my cubicle wall Gambit-style.

Thanks to Marc B, who learned everything he needs to know about poker from listening to Kenny Rogers' 'The Gambler' on repeat.

    The Schadenfreude is strong with this video.

    If my opponent has but a single card that could make him win the hand, I start packing my bags. I'm that unlucky.

    BWAHahaha FUCK YOU LIU!
    Bad winners are way worse than bad losers.

    He could easily cover for his mistake by claiming he was doing a pee dance.

  • Bling Nye

    Apparently he had an 80% chance to win.

    80% =/= 100% it turns out.

    This is almost as good. https://imgur.com/gallery/S...

    That's one hell of a poker face he's got

    You don't really need a poker face when everyone can see everyone else's cards. I don't particularly like Texas Holdem. I much prefer a standard 5 card draw.
