WPH #514: CRAZY READ By Daniel NEGREANU!!!!!!!!!

Daniel Negreanu has built his huge bankroll around making thousands of mind-boggling calls and folds on the felt. He is known to be able to read situations perfectly and will often call out his opponent’s exact holdings! In this hand, only Kristen Foxen stood between him and another PokerGo title. Could Negreanu use all of his experience to make an insane read and lay down a monster hand on the river?

When playing against strong, competent opponents, you should be careful about betting too thin for value when your opponent can often have the nuts in their range. Strong poker players will recognize this and will find these situations and may bluff you off your marginal holdings.

Negreanu grew up playing primarily cash games and has appeared on many popular poker shows such as High Stakes Poker, High Stakes Feud, Poker After Dark, and High Stakes Duel (he won the most recent season, beating Eric Persson and Doug Polk and claiming $200,000 as well as the championship belt).

🔍 Preflop: During heads-up play in this PokerGO Tour event, Daniel Negreanu limps in with QJ of diamonds from the button, which is also the small blind when playing heads-up. Kristen Foxen decides to check with K2o from the big blind, and they both head to a flop.

💸 Flop – Ad Jc Tc: Foxen flops a gutshot straight draw to broadway on this wet & connected flop. After she checks, Negreanu bets 60,000 with his second pair, a gutshot straight draw, and a backdoor flush draw. Foxen sticks around with a call, and they head to the turn.

💣 Turn – Qh The Q of hearts on the turn is disastrous for Negreanu as he improves to two pair while Foxen improves to an ace-high straight. Both players check, and they head to a river.

🌊 River – 5s The 5 of spades on the river doesn’t bring in the front door flush. Foxen now looks to get some value from the nuts as she fires out a bet of 250,000 into the 300,000 pot. Negreanu begins to think out loud, giving a rare insight into what goes on in the mind of a poker wizard. Will he be able to get away from a disguised two pair after playing the hand so cautiously? Stay tuned to the end of this poker video to see if he folds or calls!
