Trips vs. Overpair – Garrett Adelstein vs. Jennifer Tilly: $234,000 Pot
Jennifer Tilly stands out for her very aggressive play and driving the action in High Stakes Poker Season 9 and was just delivering a brutal bad for Xuan Liu.

to $2,500 and Jennifer just calls out of position with . Pot Size: $6,000
The flop comes
, which is an absolute dream for Garrett as he flops Trips, while Tilly has an overpair. Jennifer checks, Adelstein makes a $2,000 cbet and Tilly check-raises to $6,000 and Adelstein calls. Pot Size: $18,000
turn it does get even better for Garrett Adelstein as he fills up. Jennifer checks again and Garrett fires a rather smallish $8,000 second barrel. Tilly check-calls. Pot Size: $34,000
on the river is a blank and now Jennifer leads out for $15,000. Garrett makes a very large raise to $100,000 (6.7x pot) and after tanking for a few seconds she calls it off, just to get shown a full house by Garrett, who collects a nice $234,000 pot.
Another big bluff gone wrong – Jennifer Tilly vs. Krish: $257,300 Pot
Cash game fans know Krish Menon from Hustler Casino Live, where he is a regular and known for his questionable plays.
Before the start of the hand, he is already stuck a bunch after getting caught bluffing by Garrett Adelstein in Episode 4.

The flop of

Xuan quickly gets out of the way, but Jennifer can’t fold here and makes the call. There is a whopping $257,300 in the pot and Krish needs runner-runner!
They are running it twice and here is the outcome:
Bottom Set vs. Top Pair – Kim Hultman vs. Jennifer Tilly: $367,200 Pot

Tom Dwan limps with

The flop of

on the river is a disaster for Tilly as she improves to Top Two Pair. She checks and Kim Hultman announces All-In, followed by a “Oh Dear” by Jennifer.
Tilly can only beat AK or a bluff at this stage, however she does get pot odds of 5.7 to 1, so she can’t fold Top Two here. Jennifer makes the crying call and Kim of Hultman wins the largest pot of High Stakes Poker Season 9 worth $367,200.
