High Stakes Poker Season 6 – Another nightmare-like day for Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu’s downswing continues in the eleventh episode of High Stakes Poker Season 6. The ‘run it twice’ option didn’t help, and  Mike Matusow ripped Daniel off just as much as he could.

In the latest episode of HSP, Tom 'durrrr' Dwan, Daniel Negreanu, David Benyamine, Eli Elezra, Mike 'The Mouth' Matusow, Phil 'OMGClayAiken' Galfond, Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier and Doyle Brunson were the ones that brought us the action in the Golden Nugget.

The Pinocchios of Poker

There is nothing better than winning the pot with a weaker hand and letting your poker face intimidate your opponent into thinking you are the strongest. I have collected five of the most memorable bluffs in this compilation to make you think next time you fold. It’s undoubtable that it is a pleasure to win the pot with Aces, but if you can do it with 7-2 off-suit, that’s skill. 

The bluff is essential in any poker game and is a deadly weapon once mastered. It takes years and great control over emotions to master a great bluff. In order to be able to build your stack without a good hand, most good players abide by these guidelines:

  • Choice of opponent
  • Perfect timing
  • A good read
  • Exact bet amounts
  • Consequent aggressivity
