Player’s all-in at random during WSOP interview
WSOP 2021 Main Event is nearing completion, so less and less participants are remaining in the tournament. There is one poker pro Pat Lyons, who has managed to be noted for an interesting trick.
The journalist approached Lyons for an interview and Pat agreed, despite being engaged in WSOP Main Event. Moreover, the poker pro started to play blindly and even went all-in. After that, the audience saw a battle of 5-6 suited against A-10 (see video below).

At the end of the hand, Pat hit a flush and won. Then Lyons proudly said that his such actions were the reason why people considered him great Pat Lyons.
