One of the greatest poker hands ever?

High-stakes poker master Benny Spindler plays with the utmost confidence and boasts a great collection of achievements at professional tables across the world.

His style of play has garnered criticism from opponents, but it hasn't changed the manner in which Spindler operates at the table.

Fans of aggressive and exciting poker play will thoroughly enjoy the video posted below in which the German born high roller, Spindler, takes out some formidable foes and appears to defy any and all written or unwritten roles in the great game of poker.

In the clip, the shaggy haired Spindler faces off with top table talent Paul Foltyn, who bows out with the better hand with no way of knowing that the brazen wunderkind was bluffing his way to a dominant showing.  When the typical guidelines dictate that Spindler should be playing more conservatively and likely should have not proceeded beyond the early stages of the hand, he would go on to stun viewers and his opponents by prevailing.

Commentators James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton can be heard expressing their shock regarding the path that the hand takes, but neither broadcaster seems surprised that Spindler, who has built a reputation for going against the grain, continues onward beyond the initial bet.  In fact, early in the video, Hartigan refers to Spindler as a "raising machine".  That moniker proves accurate.

Spindler proves victorious by going all-in with a weak hand, forcing his last remaining opponent to fold.

In the end, a victorious Spindler is the only one that does not express some type of boggled response.  He's a force at the tables and this video proves why he is considered a remarkable player.

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

Ryan Madson is acting questionable

I've seen similar types of "poking fun" entries on other Phillies blogs. When this picture came across my desk today, I figured, "Why not...?" Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!
