- It seems really clear to me that Adam had a very strong read on the fact that Susan wasn’t going to make the standard cover bet in this instance (and thus made the move of going all-in from second place—an intelligent move if you don’t think the leader will cover). Much like last Friday and Michonne, though, the move worked out in Susan’s favor.
