Video: Poker moments we'll never forget

Posted on 18 February 2010 by "T".

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!

A very nice vids, I liked more vid with Daniel Negreanu and Gus Hansen. If I was in place of Negreanu I fold, it was be posible stright
 BBU18/02/2010 22:47:04 GMT
dorinba you'll never be in Negreanu's place until you learn the rules, he has a full house so he's beating a straight he's only losing to 55, 88 and 99.
 DAGOR18/02/2010 23:18:22 GMT
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! Big Smile

 LaBaiz20/02/2010 19:59:11 GMT
loved the 2nd video with jennifer tilly making a check with a full house thinking that antonio had a 4 of a kind. Thats unreal play.
 xarmanis20/02/2010 23:30:05 GMT
poor negranu Sad
 ierons21/02/2010 21:03:17 GMT
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.
 Fakiry22/02/2010 14:19:17 GMT
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!
 Airas10/03/2010 12:08:47 GMT
Love this, negreanu hahah Smile

You can always feel negreanus pain :/
 godoy03/05/2018 15:15:29 GMT
one of the coolest things in poker and this being able to see things in real time because the big tournaments and big dices are all filmed and you can see and review every time
