You need to read his original post 5 more times. Perhaps he needs to put in bold and large fonts "He sucked out on the turn"
Ask yourself why would he be so traumatised after winning a hand and give up poker for the rest of his life.

My question is: why did he show his cards at all? Poker players rarely show losing hand even after the river. And you were required to show your hand first (since he called you), so, after he see you have the winning hand, he does not have to show his cards (and, again, almost noone shows his cards in his situation). Also, after no more action is possible (all people are all in and called), any player can show his cards: he does not need a permission from others.
He won the hand.

Yeah I was thinking something similar. Bad beats are part of poker. It happens all the time, especially in lower stakes because people will play anything and luck out here and there.

I can see where Phil is coming from. When he moved all in I would have put him on something higher than my pair of 10's. Tom got extremely lucky. But hey that's poker.
Where Phil was wrong was saying ok we'll see where you are in 5 years.
Well its 13 years later and Dwan is still a successful poker pro having won over $3 million in career live earnings.

Phil's a obviously a great player, but a total ass clown.
