#RKHstrategy #Rounders1 

I always think that this was not like the high poker stakes games.
Maybe he did not have the cards, maybe he was just bluffing in order to make the movie like really interesting and to have this effect..

#Rounders1 #RKHstrategy 
my guess will be A♦10♠

KGB = TT (10_10)

Another vote for A-T for KGB!

Agree with @Advoghado and will guess 10♠A♦ for the sake of variety :)

I assume Teddy KGB did NOT act first preflop - maybe it's a more recent heads-up rule?

I think that KGB had A♥10♦ 

Analyze this! Part II: RKH takes on KGB!

Though our friend @Advoghado is of a different opinion ;), most of us would agree with @Jordan Hooper and @Socius that 'Mike played the hand perfectly'  in light of what he knew about his opponent (and the absolute nuts secured by the script). But what about Teddy KGB's play? Why did he bet the way he did and what was his final hand? 

Teddy KGB's undisclosed two starting cards and final hand have been the object of much speculation ranging from a set, through two pair, to pure air. And in one of the latest analyses to appear (2015), poker pro and coach @Jonathan Little put him on J-8:

"The way Teddy reacts after Mike’s call with the nuts leads me to believe he was bluffing instead of over valuing a worse made hand. If I was forced to put Teddy on an exact hand, it would be Jx-8x, likely with a backdoor flush draw. This is because J-8 has a draw to the nuts yet it still loses to almost all of Mike’s range. He also has an 8 blocker, making it a bit more difficult for Mike to have the nuts. Of course, his river bluffing range is certainly wider than only J-8, but J-8 (and J-9) are prime semi-bluffing candidates due to having blockers and also having a draw to the nuts."

What is YOUR take on KGB's play in the final hand in Rounders?

By modern heads-up rules, the dealer gets to act first pre-flop and then last for the rest of the hand. But in this case, we see Mike acting first throughout. Was it simply a matter of different rules, a mistake on the part of the filmmakers, or did Teddy KGB limp pre-flop? If he only called the big blind, what does that imply about his hand?

Did Teddy KGB really put Mike on a draw? If he thought he was facing a missed draw, was the all-in on the river the best move?

And, of course, the ultimate question:

What two cards was Teddy KGB holding in the last hand?

SWOT analysis, did you say?..

Mike's biggest strength is of course...
