The Poker Central YouTube channel is full of gems from the past and this week we released a hand featuring two of your favorites, Daniel Negreanu and Tom Dwan. The hand you’re watching above is from Season 6 of High Stakes Poker which is now available on PokerGO along with all prior seasons of what’s arguably the best cash game show ever made.
To set the scene for this hand, Tom Dwan had made his debut on High Stakes Poker in Season 5 where he blew everyone’s socks off – especially those of Barry Greenstein. An online superstar under the handle durrrr, Dwan became a fan favorite to the television audience as well when he displayed his fearless nature throughout his maiden appearance on the show.
In Season 5, Dwan clashed with Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Ilari Sahamies, and Mike Baxter with much success. But nothing was more successful than him winning the biggest pot – back then – in televised poker history when he cracked Greenstein’s aces. Fast-forward to Season 6 and Dwan was both established and a feared player to all those that came across him. Daniel Negreanu, however, tried giving him a taste of his own medicine by running a big bluff at the wrong time!
