Great Hand : Daniel Negreanu and Gus Hansen on Heads Up Poker

October 11th, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #2

In amongst all the serious conversation, here’s a little gem of Daniel Negreanu and Gun Hansen going head’s up.

This hand ended up being the biggest pot ever won on the show High Stakes Poker on the Game Show Network. It perfectly illustrates the sheer rush of poker.

Gus Hansen has pocket 5′s and Daniel Negreanu has pocket 6′s. Gus raises pre-flop, Daniel re-raises and Gus calls. The flop comes 9 – 6 – 5 and the action gets crazy. Then the turn comes and it just goes into the beyond… Great video.

Isn’t it classic that Mr. Kotter [Gabe Kaplan] is one of the commentators? Ooh, ooh! Gabe, if you’re out there, get in touch – we need your help!

Classic Poker Video : 1978 WSOP Final Table

October 4th, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #2

Here is a great example of why we love poker, and how important it is to fight for our right to play.

The video is the 1978 World Series of Poker Final Table at Binions Horseshoe in Las Vegas, originally broadcast on CBS. The legendary commentators are Brent Musburger and Jimmy The Greek. The final table players included Buc Buchanan, Ken Smith, Jesse Alto, Louis Hunsucker, Bobby Baldwin and the no limit hold’em legend, Crandall Addington.

Crandall Addington is one of very few players in the WSOP Hall of Fame

One of the unique aspects of the video is that we can’t see the hole cards, as pocket cam technology didn’t exist. So we see the bets, but just have to guess at what they’re holding. And the interview Brent does with WSOP Hall of Famers Puggy Pearson and Johnny Moss is absolutely classic.
