Right. She made a dumb play.
That's what I think happened. She was an amateur player on a big live stream and screwed up. Either by misreading her hand or just making a huge mistake.
Had a brain freeze.
There has been no solid evidence that she cheated. People reviewed all her other hands and found nothing. So she all of a sudden decides to cheat on this particular hand. It doesn't add up.
The guy who kept the money should be ashamed for not returning it at this point.
Is there a chance she cheated? Of course, but not near enough evidence to lean that way currently.
It's difficult to claim she misread her hand for a variety of reasons that have already been covered. And we need to stop with the idea that she was in over her head so she called an all-in with jack high. People who get in "over their head' play the exact opposite way. And nobody calls there with jack high. Not your dumb uncle, the local card player who plays any two cards, not the drunkard... nobody. So while we can't prove she cheated, unless she has some crazy Mike Postle (another player who we couldn't prove
cheated... but did) god-like ability to read hands, something was up. And we haven't even gotten into the crazy similarities between her style of writing and that of the thief who stole her chips. Seems likely she wrote tweets for him in the aftermath. Lot's of funny business in play.
