HUGE Gus Hansen Pot and a Clash Between Spirit Rock and Matusow in a $100/$200 PLO game

I was multi-tabling and not watching too closely, but a deep stacked Gus Hansen is always worth half an eye at the least:

WOW! Anyone know who Arabianight is?



Here's a huge hand for Prahlad Friedman (Spirit Rock) who's adjusted perfectly to being on Gus's right. The game's filled up a bit with Mike Matusow, eps (rumored to be Eli Elezra), and couple of others including fidelio. Jesus, this was insane:

Soon after, Prahlad made a laydown to Matusow and had some stuff to say to Mike. The tone is questionable, I must say.

Gus shipped a ton of money over to Prahlad, maybe thinking Prahlad was on steam or that he'd laydown. Gus might've just not known where he was at and decided to gamble, but to not have Prahlad on a set from his rockish play is odd here when Gus was on a redraw at best. It was $30k to Prahlad.
