I was intrigued by the story of Amanda Botfeld and her dad in the tag team event and found myself looking up some of the reporting. These hands really caught my eye. Disclaimer, pokernews reporting has been known to be wrong so apologies if I’m judging these plays based in faulty reporting. 4 handed the Botfeld team was the bottom stack. Even without ICM implications I think all of the hands described here are limps in the small blind not raises. Notice how Amanda limps the KQ. The other guy plays two hands where he probably should have limped the SB but opens instead. The pot gets out of hand quickly and he takes a risk that was not necessary especially w a shorter stack not in the hand. Seems to me the 4th place team gifts team Botfeld a ladder up for no reason.
