Two Mind-Boggling Calls from Davidi Kitai cracked by The Poker Guys

You must have heard that poker nowadays is only about math and unexploitable plays. But that concept is being cracked down by Davidi Kitai who has made a name for himself by making calls based on what most would consider a “Soul Read”.

Davidi Kitai is a player from Belgium who has total live earnings of more the $7 million as of this writing. He has 3 WSOP Bracelets to his name – WSOP 2008 Pot Limit Holdem Event and WSOP 2013 Pot Limit Holdem Event, and WSOP 2014 Pot Limit Omaha -6 Handed.

This year he placed 2nd in the WSOP $10,000 No Limit Holdem 6-Handed Championship and created waves as usual in this year’s WSOP with his mind-boggling calls. He is also one of the very few people who has won a Triple Crown – a victory in the WSOP, WPT and the EPT.

The Poker Guys who have broken down over 100 live game plays as shown in their YouTube channel presents 2 excerpts that demonstrate Kitai’s plays that can only be attributed to a soul read:

WSOP 2014 $ 3,000 No Limit Hold’em – Six Handed Event

 

This happened during his WSOP 2014 $ 3,000 No Limit Hold’em – Six Handed Event victory. Kitai calls Ruberto’s consistent betting from the flop to the turn. But what surprised most was his final call on the river with only a Queen-high. Due to the shocking call of Kitai, Ruperto called on the tournament director to change his seat as he believed the only possible reason why Kitai would call with Queen high was because Kitai saw his cards. A few minutes later, however, Kitai once again called a river bet with Queen High and  he eventually won the event.

EPT Berlin Main Event 2012

 

Once again, Kitai called a check-raise from Andrew Chen at the river, this time with an Ace high. This happened in the EPT Berlin 2012 €5,300 No Limit Holdem Main Event. In this same event, Kitai made an amazing river call with a pair of 5s. This brazen strategy that could only be attributed to some hidden genius made him win the event in the end.

As can be heard in the video, The Poker Guys gives a blow by blow analysis of Kitai’s thought process pre-flop until the river. And as both of these guys are fantastic players, their reasoning is probably spot- on. But the truth of the matter is only Kitai really knows how his mind works, and that mystery is what makes him a great player!
