Hahaha this is obviously a fake but it’s hilarious… Daniel the actor!
Okay now I’ve read rumours that this vid would be the real deal. No way, ok. First of all — Siktilt is a serious site. Second — Daniel has people around him to make sure these kind of things don’t happen. He’s a media figure and he would never allow this to happen. It’s a fact. Please don’t buy in to this, enjoy the laugh, though!
Went into a discussion with a poker friend of mine. We discussed some of Daniel’s weak calls on the river in various High Stakes Poker seasons, and we pretty much broke it down to these factors:
- Daniel Negreanu did not want to get bluffed on national television.
- Daniel flopped a lot of hands, got beaten a lot times — and couldn’t believe it kept happening.
- Daniel wanted information. He was paying for information (a lot of cash, though).
- Daniel was steaming.
I’m afraid most of it was 2 and 4 — and 50% was cold deck as well. Whatever it was, we both agreed on some of the calls being bad.
Then again — if I was dealt his cards against those opponents (I mean can you fold a straight to Sam Farha?) good chance I would have busted. Meh.
It’s not much new really but I love how he describes the last category. It’s almost like he’s saying: “just fold if I bet in to you, kthxbi”.
Video is part of the stacked dvd and I’m not sure if these videos were added to YouTube with permission. Thing is, they’ve been up for over a year so I’m sure Daniel doesn’t really mind too much, or he would have asked them to be taken down, right?
Alright so we all know Daniel Negreanu can be a psychic every once in a while when he’s guessing the whole cards of his opponents — right here — he puts Ryan McClean on Aces — and loses the absolute minimum after what is a mediocre call pre-flop imho.
Anyway — excellently played, didn’t put any more chips in after the flop. Talk about missing value bets by Ryan McClean.
Footage from the World Series of Poker, 2007.
Isn’t Phil Hellmuth the one who always lets us know NOT to play the A4os? I mean why does he call the river here?A busted draw? Even the runner clubs got there…
I’m not dissing Phil, as Phil usually doesn’t make donkey rivercalls like this… Oh well, Daniel made some money in the hand so that’s always good to see.
I’m so sick and tired of hearing this story of Daniel being broke. Every time I sit down at a poker table with strangers, and we get into any discussion that includes my main man Daniel — somebody has to bring up the fact that he went broke in 2007 and hasn’t really recovered since. Look, first of all — we all know Daniel has lost a couple bucks playing golf. A couple million, maybe. But that no way adds up to him going broke. Tournament wins only, he should be able to cover the golf losses, no?
Anyway, a decent read is on the twoplustwo-forums, a BIG chunk of text — but you should go over all of it. It’s entertaining, disturbing — but with an obvious conclusion. Enjoy!
Daniel talking extremely openly to John Caldwell at the EPT event in Barcelona. He talks golf, he talks topless women, he talks poker and he talks being a celebrity all around the globe….
The Poker talk is limited, but there is SOME.
Okay, I just had an extremely long and pointless discussion with a good friend of mine — who believes Erick Lindgren is the best poker player out there, and not my main man Daniel Negreanu. I told ‘m: “ok, why in Gods name would Erick be better — he’s under-accomplished in anything except golf compared to Daniel”.
My friend’s point: “Erick is the man”.
Good point. When I brought up the reading capabilities — my friend tackled that by saying: “if you yell other peoeples hands out loud 50% of the hands, you’re about to strike lucky”.
I guess he has a point right there — but still. ERICK LINDGREN? YOUGOTTOBEKIDDINGME!!
