Daniel Negreanu and John Juanda flop a set

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Daniel and John Juanda both hit a set of jacks on the flop — Cheryl Hines is in between with a BIG BIG draw — and the hand unfolds unexpectedly: Daniel makes a star laydown laying down his set — obviously waiting for a better moment to get his chips in (preferrably against one of [...]

Daniel Negreanu vs. Sam Farha

Monday, November 26th, 2007

Daniel versus Sam Farha — and I’m not too happy with how Daniel played this hand… I mean, he should have raised on the flop imo… He did bet the turn, but not enough — he could have known Sammy was drawing, seeing as he bets everything… Excellent fold though, on the river.

Daniel calls out the turn AND the river

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

This is not Daniel showing he’s the best at predicting cards. This is just extremely amazing coincidence, but that doesn’t make this video worse… I feel Jerry’s pain though, his nut flush was taken down by Daniel’s Straight Flush — pretty sick! Anyway, still, Daniel sucks out against Jerry in the 2005 National Heads Up [...]

Mike Matusow vs. Daniel Negreanu (9/7 vs 9/7)

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

This is absolutely awesome poker. Keep in mind it looks like both players are playing the same game here, but they’re NOT. Mike is nothing close to Daniel’s stack, and he’s risking a great position (and being knocked out) in the tournament against the chip leader with just top pair and close to no kicker. [...]

Daniel says: “Don’t bluff me daaawwgg”

Daniel runs over a hand played on High Stakes Poker season 3, where he played his pocket nines to perfection against Daniel Shak (Q/10). Excellent footage — enjoy!

Daniel Negreanu talking about the bad beat

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I can see the pain in Danny’s eyes when he talks about a hand that just didn’t make any sense to him (check out the sick cold deck hand between Daniel Negreanu and Gus Hansen right here!)… Daniel sums it up in the end: “That was tough”. That was tough for everyone watching too, Daniel. [...]

Daniel Negreanu’s most famous cold deck situation

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

This hand is probably one of the most talked about hands on the internet. In total, the hand has been viewed over 2 million times on Youtube, and the reason why is dead simple; it’s one of the biggest pots ever to be shown on television, and it’s a prime example of a cold deck [...]
