Nick Rigby Plays the 2-3 "Dirty Diaper" in 2021 WSOP Main Event

Nível 26 : 30,000/60,000, 60,000 ante

Nicholas Rigby

Nicholas Rigby made some interesting calls with {3-}{2-} on Day 5 of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event, where he built a big stack throughout the day. But it wasn't because of his love for NBA legend Michael Jordan, who famously wore the #23 for the Chicago Bulls.

When poker's world championship tournament concludes next week, one player will take home $8 million. If Rigby continues stacking chips at his current rate, he just might claim that nine-figure prize. But there appears to be only one thing that could stop him from reaching that mountain top — refusing to fold a hand dubbed in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as "The Dirty Diaper."

There is actually a reason why he loves to play the three-deuce, and it has nothing to do with GTO. Rigby's rowdy and inebriated friends on his rail inside the Amazon room explained on the PokerGO stream why their pal likes to play the 3-2.

"The Diaper is a famous hand in Pittsburgh," one of his friends explained to PokerGO's Jeff Platt. "The three-deuce is called The Dirty Diaper if it's off-suit, and we play it all the time."

Rigby's friend continued to explain that they play the 3-2 game in Pittsburgh like others play the 7-2 game, where everyone at the table must ship a chip to a player who wins a hand with 7-2. In their case, the bounty is on for when a player takes down a pot with the 3-2.

In the Main Event, or any tournament, you can't play those games, but Rigby's a cash game player, according to his friends. During Day 5 of poker's biggest event, he brought The Dirty Diaper game across the country to Las Vegas, except no one else was playing along.

Pot-Limit Omaha

Rafael Mota opened to 120,000 in the hijack and Tim Grau jammed his 360,000 in the middle next to act. The action folded back around to Mota and he quickly called.

Tim Grau: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Rafael Mota: {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

The flop came {j-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades}, giving Grau a pair of sixes but Mota two pair. The {3-Spades} hit the turn and the {6-Spades} landed on the river for Mota to make a full house and eliminate Grau in eighth place.

Mota Folds River

Nível 26 : 30,000/60,000, 60,000 ante

No Limit Hold'em

Leonid Yanovski called in the small blind and Rafael Mota checked his option in the big blind.

On the {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop, Yanovski check-called a bet of 80,000 from Mota.

The turn of {4-Hearts} was bet at once more by Mota to the tune of 160,000, which Yanovski called once again.

The river {a-Diamonds} saw Yanovski bet 150,000 and Mota quickly folded, giving the pot to Yanovski.
