Go search for this in the PLO forum for your answer, they had a lot of fun with this hand after the show aired.

I actually wanted to comment on this episode but I thought no one would care about it anymore.

I wasn't impressed with Cunningham's play at all during this final table. I definitely think he's an amazing player and probably better than most in Omaha, but compared to a lot of the other players I don't think his skills in Omaha are CLOSE to professional. His raise on this board was just bad unless he misread his hand, his calling down Hellmuth with a double gutshot hand when the flush came in was also quite bad, and some of his other plays were marginal if nothing else.

Robert could very well have been raising with AQ or less, since there was no action before the river.

I'm sure allen would say thats a donk play too as I don't think his raise is enough to make a flush fold if per se you take out Robert W.

Yeah there is no way Williamson raises with just 3 aces in that spot, in fact he probably folds there with a player still to act and the first pos. man betting out. I was thinking though - what if Williamson just calls behind Hellmuth - does Allen then raise the trips as a semi-bluff or a sort of squeeze, assuming he only needs to get Hellmuth to fold? (Of course this would never happen as RW3 never flatcalls with A's full.)
