WPH #501: The $456,000 Hand!!!! [Game of Gold]

It is Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates facing off against Maria Ho in a battle for $456,000 and to be crowned as the first ever Game of Gold winner! With the runner-up getting nothing, the stakes couldn’t be any higher. This pot balloons up quickly as Maria Ho tries to use her position to outplay the heads-up specialist in Jungleman!

Betting is often a good strategy when you have a strong but vulnerable pair. Low pairs always have the danger of becoming the second best hand at showdown if your opponent has overcards and hits one of them on the turn or river. If you decide to bet you will often get folds from your opponents that have overcards to the board which helps protect your hand from being outdrawn.

Maria Ho is a professional poker player from America. She has over $5,000,000 in live tournament earnings, putting her in the top 350 on the all-time money list. She is well known for commentating on a wide variety of poker shows including US Poker Open, Super High Roller Bowl, Poker Masters, and the World Series of Poker.

He famously won the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) $50,000 Players Championships, regarded as one of the hardest poker tournaments to win, in 2021 and again in 2022.

Filmed in Seoul, South Korea and hosted by experienced poker broadcaster Ali Nejad, Game of Gold combines high stakes poker with survival reality TV.

On PokerGO’s No Gamble, No Future, poker legends Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth face off. Hellmuth sets the trap when he flops two pair, but will Kid Poker fall for it, or will he find a way to put The Poker Brat on tilt?

When considering whether to fire a second barrel as a bluff on the turn, it’s usually good to have some form of equity, such as a gutshot straight draw. This provides you with some potential outs to improve your hand and possibly win the pot.

Daniel Negreanu ‘DNegs’ or ‘KidPoker’ is in the top 5 on the poker all time money list with over $52,000,000 in total live earnings. He has 6 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets. Negreanu is 49 years old and originally from Toronto in Canada but resides in Las Vegas, U.S.A.

Phil Hellmuth ‘The Poker Brat’ has over $29,000,000 in live tournament earnings putting him in the top 25 on the all time money list, he has the most WSOP bracelets (17) and is well known for his antics and outbursts at the poker table.

No Gamble, No Future is an American poker television program that airs on PokerGO, and premiered on August 1, 2022.

💸 Flop – Ks 5d 2c

It’s a dream flop for The Poker Brat as he hits two pair. He checks to Negreanu, who throws out a $3,000 continuation bet. Hellmuth decides to call with his top and bottom pair as they both head to the turn..

💣 Turn – 2d

The deuce of diamonds upgrades Hellmuth’s two pair to a full house as he checks again to the aggressive Negreanu. Negreanu doesn’t slow down as he fires out a big bet of $10,000. Hellmuth continues to set the trap by just making the call.

🌊 River – 3s

A meaningless three on the river sees Hellmuth quickly check over to Negreanu. But will Negreanu fire that third and final bullet? And what will Hellmuth do? Stay to the end of this poker video to find out!

WPH #499: He MEGA TILTS After Doug Polk Does THIS!

In this poker hand at The Lodge Card Club, Doug Polk, aka ‘WCGRider,’ is flexing his speech play skills in a bid to manipulate Mike D. The question is, will his silver tongue do the trick?

When you have a tough decision, and your opponent starts talking to you, it is because they are trying to talk you into what they want you to do. When an opponent speaks very clearly, they are usually not bluffing, but if they struggle to put a sentence together, they are more than likely bluffing.

Doug Polk ‘WCGRider’ is the owner of The Lodge Card Room along with Brad Owen and Andrew Neeme. Doug has over $9,500,000 in live tournament earnings and 3 World Series Of Poker (WSOP) bracelets, including a win in the $100k Super High Roller for $1,600,000.

Not too much is known about Mike D, but he is introduced as an amateur poker player who has played a few times at The Lodge.

In early 2022, poker professionals Doug Polk, Brad Owen, and Andrew Neeme joined forces to acquire a controlling stake in The Lodge Poker Club & Card Room, which happens to be the largest poker establishment in Austin, Texas. This exclusive poker club, accessible only to its members, boasts an impressive array of amenities, including over 80 poker tables of cash games and tournaments, operating round-the-clock. Additionally, The Lodge provides an inviting ambiance with 40 large-screen TVs, allowing poker club members to enjoy sports entertainment while playing poker or while relaxing in the cozy waiting area. The live poker stream includes commentary from Skull Mike and Slick Rick, who have been long-time regulars at The Lodge. They provide viewers with strategic insights, complemented by a perfect blend of humor.

The Lodge Live Stream has had a variety of different poker players coming to play on stream, these include; Doug Polk ‘WCGRider’, Alex Foxen, Dan Cates ‘Jungleman’, Ben Lamb, Bill Perkins, Brad Owen, Andrew Neeme, and Nik Airball.

🔍 Pre-flop:

Everyone folds to Mike D in the small blind who looks down at A5 of clubs, he opts to call the huge $400 double straddle. Doug Polk peeks down at A8o in the big blind and follows suit with a call. Next to act is Alex in the under the gun straddle with K4o, he senses weakness from his opponents and raises to $2,400. This doesn’t deter Mike D or Doug as they both put in the call as they head 3-way to the flop.

💸 Flop – As 4s 2s

The ace-high monotone flop is incredibly wet but no player has a spade. Mike and Doug check their top pairs over to the preflop aggressor Alex, who fires out a continuation bet for $3,300. Both Mike and Doug make the call to see the turn card.

💣 Turn – 3s

A fourth spade arrives which gives Mike D a five-high straight, he checks again over to Doug who also checks. Alex chooses not to double-barrel this turn and checks to see a river.

🌊 River – Tc

After a ten comes on the river, Mike D has the chance to scoop this huge pot with a straight if he can get to showdown. He checks for a third time to Doug, who knows that his pair of aces probably isn’t good, fires out a big bet of $11,400. After Alex swiftly folds, the action is back on Mike D. As Mike D looks like he is about to throw in the call to win a pot of almost $40,000 Doug opens his mouth! But what does Doug say? Will it encourage a call or a fold from Mike D? Watch this poker video to find out!
