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).

    after the turn with the Ace and the check of Negreanu I would gone all in. Negreanu would have to other assumptions to make but that your holding another Ace. His faith in his queens would've folded.

    I guess, what you should have done is what is exactly on the title of this video which is to raise him one million and he will fold. That's what he meant that you should have done.

Please shut down your site and just stop. It would be a benefit to all the poker commumity!! Daniel would destroy you and I for one would love to watch him do it!!

    Beware: You're about to spend 11 minutes watching Polk bet an inconsequential amount of chips when Negreanu would have checked the river anyway.
    Sevier makes a cogent comment about the silly bet. This video is Polk trying his best to respond to Sevier's dig.

  • jay Seifert
    jay Seifert 25 days ago

    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

  • Steve Thomas

    To be fair to Polk he got out of that hand with minimal losses when he was dominated sooo.... Is that the point of the video?

    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
    Mark Richardson Month ago

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

  • Eric Bell
    Eric Bell Month 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 Month 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.

  • Guitar Lessons for mortals Sanders

    I think you have to always bet the river after that turn bet.

    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?

    @DOUG POLK POKER, I know that you may earn money with your TVclip channel, but DUDE, you might want to publicly admit it: you made this video (which includes your ROFL reaction to that players' answer), but that gives away the fact that you want to ultimately create an image of what you want to think that happened, at the same time that the video clearly shows your closed-up, completely quiet, embarrassed, angry face in front of what that player said. Man, this is truly some dicey territory. I'm sure you got a lot of extra fans with this video (don't ask me how), but man, this is all too evident, and I honestly can't figure out how we are supposed to think that you kept kool in front of that joke. That's lame. Hope you raise your YT and Poker earnings to forget it quicker! Cheers.

  • Bianca Martinez

    It wasn't until lately that I have become a winning player online and watching your videos the past few weeks have really helped me. I always did very well playing live in Vegas, but that was also against tourists primarily and regulars who thought they were better than they really were. I find myself spending hours of my days watching your videos and really appreciate the time and effort you put into them. As someone who truly understands the game (better than I did five years ago at least) after a decade of playing, I understand the need to talk about a hand a lot more than most will realize is needed. I even feel as if you could talk even more, but condense it for the average viewers. Although I am winning primarily in PLO and my specialty is NLH, I feel as if your videos will help me to play much better both live and online when I go back to Vegas this Summer. Still to this moment, I don't feel my 6 handed NLH game is strong enough to play professionally online. I'm hopeful I can find some of your videos here discussing 6 handed ring game.
    Thank you for your time and effort,

  • IDIOTdella

    9's are mediocre at best. You talk a lot about YOUR hand and nothing at all about what Daniel might have had at the beginning. Betting 200,00 on the turn of an Ace after calling Daniel's 400,000 on the flop is projecting that you're weak, end of; or at the very least that the Ace scared the sh*t out of you. You attempting to explain away your fear of that Ace is the funniest part of this video (and that includes the Seiver sh*t at the end - I can't stand Seiver, but he had a point - and what you did with it only makes me think it hit a raw nerve with you). Daniel only called you because he wasn't about to let YOU know the strength of HIS hand (He KNEW he had the best of it and thought he could draw more out of you at the end - s'why he checked at the end cos you'd already showed a willingness to put some money into the pot after he checked the turn) Your play was piss poor at best and in my opinion you're being utterly dishonest in your comentary concerning this hand and that about sums up the title of this video as well. Clickbait at best, but at least it had me watching to see you have your ass handed to you and you trying to explain it away in the most gibberish manner possible.

    Would you call a 3bet of a conservative sb often with KQs? And float that flop? Im just asking because i was wondering if it would ever make sense to turn some of our sdv (middle'ish pps) into a bluff otr because we then would lack combos to bluff with. And as played wouldnt it be really hard to call otr with his range unless he checks a lot of his Ax ott? Im just a newb, dont be to harsh 😅

    I'm with Seiver, I feel the turn play was weird, missing a great chance to bluff (representing an ace10+ hand that would put a Daniel in a tough spot to call), when he maybe has you beat due to preflop action. Besides, no one ever, not even with the shittiest hand is folding to that minuscule bet so you're not getting him to fold, yet also not building a pot, so your story kind of falls apart. Additionally, it makes it weird to go big in the river and try to steal the pot due to the weakness shown by turn bet. I think you overthunk this one.
