We all know that almost anything can happen in the poker world, and probably that is why poker always has been so popular? A few examples, we are used to hearing about some really sick bad beats, people that become rich in no-time with a little bit of luck, people that start "fighting" in a big tournament when the cameras are rolling etc. The list can be made long.
However, here are 5 classic poker moments that occured during the 21st century. And you know what the best thing is? It was all caught on camera!
1. Prahlad Friedman rapping
After watching this clip, you will probably agree with me when I say that Friedman should stick to playing poker.
2. Jennifer Tilly's terrible play
The actor and the poker pro, Jennifer Tilly, picked up pocket jacks against Patrik Antonius. On the flop she got trips and decided to slow play the hand and act weak. Anyhow, even though the river card gave her the full house, she still decided to check as she though Patrik had 4 of a kind??!!
3. Jeff Lisandro threatens Prahlad Friedman
During 2006 WSOP, Prahaland Friedman is getting on Jeff's nerves as he believes Jeff didn't post the ante. It all ends with Jeff telling his opponent "I'll take your head off!!!"
4. Mabuchis 4 of a kind, beaten by a Royal Straight Flush
To lose with four of a kind can feel so unreal and sick that its almost a bit funny (well, maybe not when a lot of money is up for grabs). Just imagine if it would happen to you when you're playing the WSOP Main Event, which has a buy-in of $10,000! Well, it happened to Mabuchis in the 2008 WSOP Main Event. It would be interesting to know whats going through his head after losing that hand.
5. The $575,000 hand between Daniel Negreanu and Gus Hansen in High Stakes Poker
This is a hand I (and probably many others) will never forget. It used to be the biggest pot in high stakes poker history. You have to watch it for yourselves if you haven't seen it! A true classic!
Hello everybody! The second video is really amazing. The other players watch Jennifer Tilly as an alien. After a hit really badly played. It's neckline to be sponsored. Not her lol. See you soon for new posts!
That was very sick indeed! Flopping set over set than getting a full house vs quads... Can't blame Negreanu for making the call. Great﻿ play by Gus by the way, he deserves it because he lost some money before this hand.
Tilly didnt want to win more to Antonius! That shows the differece between a pro and an amateur! And Negreanu betting all, in his full house: when pots start gaining that dimension, players should get more aware of those type of events. Looking at the strength Hansen was showing, Daniel should have thought he could also have a full house, and that would be with pair of 8's or 9's. This shows the type of hands Daniel Negreanu will never quit. Now we know him more, and we can use this the next time we play against him!
