It's more than Disney+ or Netflix. Lolz.
@dtkodak123 Cost or content wise?
@female bush grasshopper cost... But content that's up to the user if he/she likes Disney content more than poker or vice versa.
Err what I mean a
“He’s got the weakest hand but the biggest heart.” Amazing commentating by Gabe.
Tony G would be proud
I would have went all in with that set of 2’s
@Benjamin Jebb Of course. I would also if I knew the cards.
Try this in your local poker room and you get called in both spots.
My favorite comment ever from him is “there’s no way he can call” meaning he expected a fold. Guys raises and he says “see, just like I said , he didn’t call” LOL
Tom Dwan aged like 40 years in 15 years.. Incredible.
Tom Dwan was 22 years old here... winning a $919,600 pot and refusing to take any money back! THE BALLS ON THAT KID! LEGEND! DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
That how he got there.. by not counting money counting games
Joey Dunlop I think it's going a bit far to call him broke
Is Tom Dwan broke ?
Dwan is not broke. He actually just played on the new episode of High Stakes Poker this past December.
@pauliep2020 but he could be playing with someone else's money
There’s nothing worse than playing a bad hand, hitting it on the flop and then folding it before the river. Looking at you Peter Eastgate.
All I've ever seen him do is fold
For real... I can't think of a worse plan than calling Tom Dwan on the flop without planning to call all the way down.
But... and this is a HUGE but. Eastgate may have been hoping for Greenstein to raise rather than just call. Greenstein's tight early open range means he has very few deuces. Thus, if greenstein raises, and if Dwan folds, then Eastgate wins against Greenstein, who will check it down. Not a play I like, and probably a losing play, but it's the closest I can imagine to what might make sense.
Regardless of those millions he won in the main event Peter just seemed like he was playing out of his comfort zone money and competition wise and that affected his play. But the betting line sure looked like Barry had KKs or AAs and Dwan just woke up with a better deuce in a family pot. Once Peter just called Dwans raise of Barry’s bet without jamming Dwan knew Peter had a scared deuce and Barry flatting after leading into the field he had a scared over pair. Dwan also had a 10 so he raised helped him gain info right then and there and once Peter and Barry came along he knew what he had to do and he executed like a smooth criminal. So I can’t truly fault Peter but if he was playing a random $5-$10 game he would’ve been calling all the way.
Yeah, terrible fold.
Eastgate not 4-betting preflop with the AK cost Barry a lot of money on that huge hand. Dwan would have never seen the flop
I love watching this era Dwan. You can see him figuring out the math when it's his turn with the rhythm he moves his head with. Then his eyes are like he retreats into a totally different world when someone is trying to size him up.
That is why I always fold pocket aces preflop.
u had no idea how many times I lost with pocket of aces preflop.
Well that’s just variance. If you canget your money in, especially heads up, then it’s always the right play.
The great thing about going all in preflop with AA is that that play the best against it (medium suited connectors) are unlikely to call. You mostly end up against hands you crush: AK KK AQ QQ and so on.
Then if you lose, it’s variance. You made a lot of money you don’t remember if you play them aggressively pre.
@Ary Setiadi we all lose with pocket aces its part of the game, but we win with them a lot more if you play enough poker.
Barry said, "190 when the hand started" and then Sammy repeats it and laughs- that's such a subliminal trick by Barry and Sammy recognized it- basically conditioning him that they're going all in so just do it- HSP used to be so great, truly fascinating, I used to watch the new episodes on GSN right when they came out
Dwan morphs from Vulcan to vampire over time. One of my favorite players to watch.
I like how Brunson does the chip shuffle with just the chips on top. Much harder than normal chip shuffle.
Barry Greenstein is a class act
That Dwan move was all time special!
They missed the best comment by Gabe: "Barry is gonna remove the A from his name. He's gonna be known as Brry Greenstein from now on". Lol.
Getting trips and Aces to fold is Gangsta AF
i had treeps
Sammy "What are you talking about? Just get out of here. I hope he's not playing tomorrow"
25:53 the moment Dwans eyes lighten is hillarious. trying to be as professional as possible but everyone knows that is a good feeling.
To be young and invincible = Thomas Dwan Jr. The very last A-A that got cracked with Barry Greenstein was epic. Barry said, "You want to take a couple of hundred K back"? and even though Dwan was behind, He just shook his head and quietly said "no" and then the A-A got cracked. Dwan = Beast in High Stakes
But even he admitted that he was extremely lucky throughout all the seasons of the show. Still a crazy good player.
Barry: i felt like i was going to hit something. Once is fine.
This is just to show you, great players not only play on statistics but also according to their intuitions and choosing right spots to put their moneys in.
Barry had the worst instincts of anyone when it came to durrrr.
That first hand by Dwan is the best I’ve ever seen
What Eastgate did was so amateurish, especially as a Pro Player, you have to go all the way there, the odds Durr having a 2 is negligible, and if he has it, thats the game and accept it
Must be ptsd from similar hands...
Agreed but I think his more worried about 10 10 there. Dwan is the type to have just about any 2X combo there too, but it's giving way to much credit. If they had run it out and the board paired with 2 more overs, then it's more understandable to lay it down. But yea like it or not, u going on a calling station there and looking it up. Otherwise why bother playing the 2 4 at all? Hope to flop quads??? Lol
Gabe Kaplan made this show the way that it was. “If he leaves some candy bars outside his hotel room.” Lolol
I think Gabe Kaplan is about the best poker commentator there is. He’s the Tony Romo of commentating, but for poker.
Norm Macdonald was pretty good too.
@Raycefan Norm who?
@Galaxy Galaxy MacDonald
@Raycefan Norm MacDonald who?
Gabe Kaplan made this show. Excellent commentary from a great comedy writer.
Gabe is a true commentator
An unusual sight on high stakes poker... Daniel winning a big one! mind = blown
The way Tom dwan looks and puts his chips on the table is creepy af 😂😂
I love hearing Norm commentate.
Dwan was such a baller in that last hand
this video proves something very important : if you run bad, no matter who you are AND HOW GOOD YOU THINK YOU ARE you WILL LOSE .
Best part on the 2nd hand with Dwan bluffing both Eastgate and Barry was he called their hands after the hand. Durrrr is fckn legendary.
Video should be named : "GREENSTEIN Hates Pocket Aces"
The amount of pocket aces he got on the show is pretty mind blowing lol
He bought into his book Title too much, he was convinced he'd hit trips on the river every time.
O cara trincado teve medo ,eu pagaria pra ver a última carta.
21:15 barry declining running it twice even though hes crushed by the flop is so classy
It's all the same thing from an EV perspective
...what? the less % you are to win the more you want to only run it one time.
@Chairman Meow not at all
@Chairman Meow No. Equity is the same. Running it more times reduces variance. It does nothing one way or ther other EV wise.
@willesnille You guys dont know what you're talking about at all. If you're a huge favorite you want to run it as many times as possible. If you're a huge dog, you only want to run it once. Its simple.
9:42 absolutely brutal.
And there was one more hand with the Aces losing: Mike Matusow with K8c vs. Ted Brunson with AA.....King on the flop and 8 on the river giving to "The Mouth" 2 pairs!
I never understood why Eastgate called with 2-4 off if he wasn't going to see it out even after flopping trips. Was he paying for the chance to flop a nut straight or something?
It was a family pot and dwan played it like he had a better 2, dwan read Peter had the 2 and played it like he had a better deuce, also dwans table image and card ranges, great play by dwan.
Cause Eastgate was a lucky one hit wonder nit
Dwan didn’t know he had a deuce lol he was a fantastic player but you’re overestimating him lol. Guarantee if you could ask Dwan he would tell you he would have check folded turn if he though Eastgate had a 2
@QualityTheGamer I'm not sure that is accurate. I remember watching this hand on the show, some of the guys were betting on what everyone had and I believe someone guessed that dwan had a 2, and dwan points to eastgate and says "he had the 2". I think he knew pretty much dead on what everyone had, put eastgate on a weak 2 and barry on an overpair. I could be wrong though because it was years ago I saw this.
@Tdnarb you're right mate after the hands over everybody was debating it and Dwan looked over to EastGate and said he got the best hands. I think whats hard for Eastgate is his bankroll and how he's stuck between a very nit opener Barry and Tom Dwan. Great play by Dwan
Durr never fails to amaze me, very ballsy
Dario looks ten years older than he did on the big game.
Because of the old good days lol way before went broke
That Greenstein hand has always made me laugh
LOVE TOM DWAN! "I had it..."
Lol no ya didn..lol
Joey Dunlop he's a vampire
His not lying, his got ten kickers wueen
His voice all cracking as he spoke , Barry instantly like shit I was good.. strong play though
What the hell was Doyle thinking? Was he trying to rep a flush draw hoping Negreanu didn't have one?
I love hear gabe commentate
does High Stakes Poker hate Aces or just Barry Greenstein?
Nits go down...
Ace king can be a really difficult hand to play sometimes
I remember the first ever poker tournament I played in I got eliminated by pocket aces
Barry just might fold pocket aces from now on
He got the weakest hand but the biggest heart.
The fact that east gate folded was a bad fold. The only hands that beat him are pocket 7s, pocket 10s or A2 which is extremely unlikely.
Didnt know Derek Brunson was a poker player as well as a MMA fighter
Jennifer Harmon can’t be at one table without hacking up a lung every 10 seconds. Scares the shit out of me cause I never know when it’s comin.
Viffer: *Bets trips on the flop*
Commentator: “ANOTHER GOOD BET BY VIFFER”
raises trips on the flop ;)
Tom Dwan is the bomb.
Barry, next time you picked aces, please fold it pre flop. 😁
Dwan looks like a nerd, but has the boldest character.
9:42 lol he got left hanging 😂
Haven't seen this many aces get cracked since playing on Pokerstars
Norm Macdonald commentating? Poker? This is amazing? Yes
23:59 some just takes a bite of food didn't like it and just stashes it on the food line. Elegance
Even if it's a weak deuce, I think Eastgate has to go for it, especially against Tom Dwan
Peter Eastgate has to look back on these hands and be kicking himself for being so nitty 🤣😂
Whenever someone cracks aces on the table, I always like to rub it in by saying dodge those bullets lol...
tom dwan is insane
(Knock on wood) But I usually only lose w/ Aces when I play that online bingo poker.
What I've learnt from this video is just because you have aces deffo doesn't mean you will win the pot
My favorite is at 8:05 Go ahead and smile like the joker bro....YOU GOT VIFFED!!!
i heard alot of pros say overall they are down life time with AA....because you either win a small or medium pot or lose a BIG one
Dwan owns Greenstein every time loooool
Dario looking like the lead singer of an Italian Creed cover band, gets felted and then left hanging by the guy who took all his money. Rough session all the way around.
To this day I’m 🤯 by that eastgate vs durrr vs bg when east gate mucks trip 2s just like it did back in the days when this episode premiered I guess eastgate didn’t want none lol durrr in hsp very legendary stuff
@bwalsh1105 yes ur right sorry corrected it already ty 👍🏽
How Eastgate folded twips against Dwan.
I wonder if Minieri still has that cross necklace
9:42 took his chips and left him hanging!!
Aces get cracked heads up all the time yet kings will beat out 3 people. So infuriating.
To get trips and aces to fold on such a dry turn is good for Dwan but questionable from the other 2. Especially Eastgate.
More WSOP!!!!! Pleaseeee ! 😭
21:19 Sammy want to run it twice. Nice offer. Greenstein says no. He could have
Aced on the river. Oh well
why does gabe say that about running it twice for dario? "gets the bad news, decides to run it twice anyway" 8:35
Eastgate gets one of the best possible flops for 4 2 offsuit and still gets scared off LOL
Gabe is the GOAT
Win small ones, lose big ones.
Watching the poker vids, training the game all while listening to music that makes me sharp and able to achieve. I like Delta Parole, AFi, etc as music, what you guys listen to focus I am curious?
why is Barry getting screwed every time
Hate poker when you run it more than once...
amazing I didn't know Norm Macdonald did commentary for that show
More like this!
Tom dwan is a fckin enigma 😆😆
Haha swear that’s norm McDonald didn’t know he was into poker that’s dope
Barry should just fold AA from now on.
RIP Norm McD
Barry must hate aces
They should recaption the title to cracking Greenstein Aces.
I wonder when running it more than once , when players are "all in " , started ? Our dad taught us the old school way , no wild cards or anything other than straight poker when it was his turn to deal . When others would add wild cards when they dealt , the dealer rotated in our family games . If I could afford to be in one of these games I would not run it more than once , It is like adding wild cards , just not the same outcome . Too many people call "all in" when they think they can have extra outs , but "all in" should be taken more serious .
i don't think you understand how running it twice effects the game. you have the same equity both times.
@ArchaicDemon I must not understand , so tell me , if player X is all in , they run it once , and player Z has him covered , then , X loses , with playing 1 time , he is done . If running it 2 times , Z wins the first 1 and X wins the 2nd one , don't they split the pot and X is still in ? I thought the object in poker is to win as much as possible ?
@ted evans Running it more than once reduces variance from pot odds in the long term even if the odds of subsequent runs can change slightly from the first since you are removing cards and outs from the deck. With only two players, it also has the chance that a split 50-50 pot allows both to make a small 'profit' from the hand from the chips other players folded into it.
@Delta Phi I thought the object was to get their chips and eliminate the other players ? If you are ahead , why give the other person more chances ? I guess I am just old school , keep it simple , trust nobody , and no mercy , when it comes to gambling .
@ted evans the change in odds with each run is of course miniscule. Running it multiple times is also more common with televised cash games like these because a lot of these guys are actually friends outside of the game too so it is more forgiving in a sense. It also can prevent someone from losing all their chips too quickly and thus leaving the table which could be bad for tv ratings.
Everyone is playing like a fish it seems. Barry is Raising j9 in position on the flop when the SB cold 4B. And he puts in around 500 BB with AAs on the flop.
Mineiri goes all in on paired 10 board when viffer could have countless 10s.
Sam Farha is my favorite player
greinstein should just fold aces when he gets them
Look at dawn before he turned ugly from all that “squinting” 😂😂😂😂
Gabe Kaplan was the number one reason this show was great. Even above the world class players. His commentary is irreplaceable
wonder if that J9 from barry was before or after he had his aces cracked by dwan's QK ! doesnt feel like barrys style to go broke with top pair kicker 9...
It was before the KQ Dwan hand
He's got top pair and Runner Runner straight and flush draw right ? He thinks he's good and he thought Dwan was bluffing him... So it's one of two choices, either Dwan has a big overpair or he's trying to make a move. I think Barry really just instinctly thought his j was good and raised Tom 100k hoping he'd lay it down. Tom raises and Barry already has 150k in he can't fold now. But I'm not sure why Barry would put Dwan on a bluff given the action pre flop. 20kish raise preflop? I think that's what happened though.
At the end of the day AA is just a pair.
And a pair very unlikely to improve. Amazing hand heads up preflop but that’s pretty much it.
@IZn0g0uDatAll And still they often play it like they can't loose.
Yeah. It’s very hard not to get excited and married with your hand. Thing is, postflop you still beat every pair imaginable (and two pairs if the board pairs). It’s not bad, but not amazing considering you lose to everything else and almost never block any straight, full houses and so on.
Multiway it's a nite mare. But short handed or even short stacked it's a brilliant hand. It's really good in spin and goes or bounty hunter format. Also grest if you have a nutter on your table as a big heads up pot could be brewing and you know you will at least start with the best hand. 😎
barry three in a row oh my god
