Winning with the lowest possible hand is possible in poker. Most of the times you have to bluff to accomplish that. Frederik Jensen unlocked a new achievement, he won with the nut low at showdown.
The Dane had bet 6,500 on the river with the board reading: . It was up to Armando Collado Lanuza, who was on his immediate right.
Lanuza tanked for a minute or so and then threw a single chip into the middle signaling a call.
"Show me the five", he shouted. Expecting that Jensen had made a straight.
Jensen slowly turned over for the worst possible combination with the board.
Apparently, Lanuza misread the board and mucked his hand, leaving the table dazzled by this unexpected action.
Even with all the buzz his action caused, Lanuza still didn't realize what he had done.
When one of the other players asked why he mucked his hand, something got up to him. "Wait, he didn't had a straight?". Lanuza asked.
"No, you said show me the five, that would have made a straight, this was the nut low", several players replied.
"O, wow...", Lanuza gasped. "Now the wishky is really kicking in", refering to the drink he ordered earlier on.
