    Daniel and Phil really bring the best out of each other. Clearly a strong mutual respect there but a fierce competitiveness that makes them the best in the world. I’d love to see more of this.

    @34:30 might be the best hand of the century. Negreanu is an absolute mental monster against an unstoppable force in Phil Ivey. Daniel even sets the whole thing up with an elaborate and hilarious metaphor of Mayweather vs Pac.

    One of the better Ivey moods at a table for a loooooong time. I'd like him and Daniel to sit next to each other more often, seems like Daniel got a grib on bringing those smiles and laughs out. Ivey always looks like a none-expressing zombie next to Durrr, Patrik Antonius or some of the others.

      moo yoo He knew he was beat and mucked. It’s his right to much and lie and Daniel had every right to order the dealer to turn over Ivey’s hand bc he paid to see it. Thing is, these players are so good that it wasn’t needed. DNegs already knew that Ivey was lying. Ivey knew he would know before he said it. No big deal.

    Daniel so good. He made preparations even before the heads up. He entice ivey to lossen up and interact more knowing that ivey will be his more likely opponent than maria. Ivey fell for the trap. After which he stand little chance as it is daniels forte to play and to talk.
