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.

Hammer , who spent some time with the big league Phillies before returning to the minors with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. In the piece, Hammer and the IronPigs' coaching staff speak about the righty pitcher's current path and what he's focused on to return to the majors. During my time chatting with the talented prospect he spoke on some topics that didn't make the cut in the feature.  Topics included the variance in the baseball at the upper levels, the IronPigs' catchers and more.  Read ahead for those interview excerpts. I asked Hammer about the difference in the baseball from the lower levels of the minors to Triple-A and the majors.  The variance in the balls is said to take

2019 Phillies Prospects Countdown: #7 LHP JoJo Romero

JoJo Romero, image- Jay Floyd With a growing crop of very talented pitching prospects in the Phillies organization, left-hander JoJo Romero is certainly among the standouts. The five-foot-11 200-pounder was the Phils’ 4th round draft selection in 2016. That year he helped Yavapai College, the same school that the Phillies drafted Kenny Giles from in 2011, clinch the JuCo World Series, leading the way with an 11-5 record, a 3.64 ERA and a 10.2 K/9 mark. He also tossed a complete game gem to earn the win in their title game. After signing with the Phillies, Romero made his professional debut as a member of the short-season Class A Williamsport Crosscutters. There, he notched a 2-2 record with a 2.56 ERA while striking out 31 and walking 11 in 45 2/3 innings. In 2017, he got off to a terrific start with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. In 13 starts, Romero tallied a 5-1 record with a 2.11 ERA and a 9.3 K/9 mark and was honored as a South Atlantic League mid-season All-Star. R

Bubby Rossman's long awaited MLB debut

Eight years after he initially signed a professional contract with the Dodgers and a five-year stretch playing away from affiliated ball, Bubby Rossman became a major leaguer on Wednesday. Added as a substitute for pitcher Kyle Gibson, who is restricted from travel to Canada for the Phillies' series in Toronto, due to his medical inability to be vaccinated from COVID-19, Rossman took the mound for the first time in the majors. Rossman, who was a 22nd round draft selection in 2014 had pitched in 200 professional games before his one-inning outing in the Phillies' 8-2 loss to the Blue Jays. In 27 appearances with Double-A Reading this year, the 30-year-old right-hander has performed well, tallying a 2-2 record with a save, a 3.32 ERA and a .200 batting average against.   The embedded video below features a media session with Rossman from prior to opening day this year, in which the California native discusses his journey through independent baseball and back to affiliated ball wi
