Poker Hands - Daniel Negreanu Is Stunned By INSANE Bet From Doug Polk

  • Published on Oct 17, 2016
  • Daniel Negreanu isn't just playing for the money. He's all about the titles and legacy. As it stands, he has six WSOP (World Series of Poker) bracelets and two WPT (World Poker Tour) titles. He's a very familiar face on shows like High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark. As a Poker Stars pro, he can often be found at the EPT (European Poker Tour), and PCA (PokerStars Carribean Adventure). He also was featured in the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event.
    In this edition of Poker Hands Negreanu faces off against Doug Polk in the richest tournament ever conceived. With over $37 million in the pool, both players have bought in for $1,000,000, and every chip counts. The Big One For One Drop is not your average WSOP (World Series of Poker) event. This one creates legends, like Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Dan Colman, and Antonio Esfandiari.
    In this hand, Doug Polk makes a highly unorthodox play, betting a tiny amount on the turn. Daniel Negreanu must decide what to do with his overpair of Queens, which haven't improved, but may very well be the best hand. Doug himself analyzes the decisions made by both players and explains the reasoning behind his quirky play.
    Poker Hands is a series in which Doug analyzes televised hands and shares his thoughts. New episodes are uploaded every Monday (and sometimes Thursday).

    9 minutes and 45 seconds to say: I had a weak pair - I made weak bets - Daniel saw right through me... and took my chips away - You talk like you play... to much posturing and bullshit

  • Ludo Sudo
    Ludo Sudo 22 days ago +3

    9:45 of too much talk - truth is, Daniel called your weak pair raises pretty damn quickly and outplayed you at your own game of: "Take my chips brah!... but just a little at a time"

    Man, you seriously need to quit talking so much. honestly, nobody cares about your commentary. People who watch these poker videos already understand the game and like to figure out the situation themselves. If you want to do an initial commentary at the beginning as a setup and finish with a slight review at the end, that's fine. BUT this stop and go bullshit has got to go.
    Now, if Negreanu was doing the commentary, we could listen all day. The guy has an iconic personality.

    I didn't watch the river but at the turn, Daniel was putting you on a high pocket pair, he never for a second put you matching the board, No way.

    Poker is all about making the wrong move at the right moment.

    99% of players play like pros did 10 years ago, when someone calls your a fish and you've just won a hand in the most random of fashions but then go on to keep winning hands I would say your under there skin, if they call you a fish, throw 1 chip there way and say you pay before you talk to the better players.

    I respect you and your game, but Seiver was right on this one. There's very few times 9s are good with Daniel's line. I figured your 200k bet on the turn was setting up a river bluff, if anything. But then again, you're the high stakes poker player, not me.

  • aidanscovers
    aidanscovers Month ago

    My line of thought with this is, what hand does Daniel bet out of position on that flop with and then check that turn with. You could have done something with that bet but you gave up on the river.

  • jason hounsell
    jason hounsell Month ago

    I'm confused why there is so much hate in the comments here? I don't think he made such a tiny bet because he spazzed out. I imagine he had logic behind it, Perhaps he wanted to know if he was against Q's or not - realised he was and wasn't sure if he could get a fold often enough against Daniel and decided the risk reward isn't good enough. Nothing wrong in that. Hellmuth isn't exactly an insane bluffer (he has moves) and he does real well in tournaments.

    Negreanu wasn't in ANY way "Stunned" so mis-titled. Should have been titled "How I made a mistake playing this hand" because you should have bet there at the end to represent either a 6 or a deuce. You missed your shot

    If this was somebody else, you would have been screaming bad play. It was hugely bad. I've played middle pairs and 2x bet to see a flop, If I see even a min. raised I fold. It's standard play unless your bluffing in which case your bets were all wrong. If you wanted to see Daniel stunned you would have 4x bet the turn! Grow up and stop reviewing your bad play and try to convince us you made a great play and not a cheap show down with no hand.

  • Mark Richardson

    Daniel Negreanu very rarely folds. He calls like 99% of the time.

  • Eric Bell
    Eric Bell 3 months ago

    I guess I'd just have to wonder how he'd play the river if say a brick came instead, say 4 or jack. If Polk is figuring Daniel didn't continue betting on turn because he didn't have AK, then that limits him to more 56/67 suited or JJ/QQ. Is it crazy to think that 56/67 would be more likely to hero call a bet on the river than QQ/JJ against Polk representing an A?

  • Anon El
    Anon El 3 months ago

    I think it’s easy for people to just label this play BAD because lower skilled players do this all the time I do think there is some merit to using it, however I have to say that IF Negreanu has any bluffs here which is unlikely due to his style surely he would be two barrelling the turn and never be check calling there with a kq kj qj type of hand. You were trying to get a cheap show down and just because it’s something typical that weak players do that doesn’t mean it isn’t a strategy that you can implement in very novel situations such as this. You sacrificed one big blind to make the river an easier decision for yourself.

    I am nobody to critic plays by those guys and my english is not great but can't negreanu have weak Ax here?It makes sense for me negreanu put some Ax bluff in his 3 bet range,cbet that flop, check/c turn to protect his range. When negreanu check/call turn to check that river it seems pretty obvious for me his range is really capped (A4 is for me the best hand he can have here). If his river range is weak and capped making an overbet or at least a pot bet will give him a tough decision for his entire range. Knowing his river range is so weak make u can bet river all your range( all bluff + AT+ for thin value). So, I understand the turn micro bet but not at all your river check. You beat only KQ KJ but can make his entire range fold on river witha big bet. Where am i wrong?
