the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

He is good but he is wrong on the Rounders comment. That kind of hand happens almost every tournament I have played.

Listen again. (at around 25:30)

To paraphrase, he says it happens, but not often. He also says that it's far less likely in a heads-up tournament. Note the phrasing. This was a heads-up tourney. Not a hand where everyone else folded, or a tourney where everyone else busted out.

He also says that it's far more realistic than the hand in Casino Royale - which he discussed earlier in the video. And THAT was the point of his 'realism' comments.
