      Well he has probably played very tight through out the hands before this and very rarely 3-Bet. And becouse Aces is the best you can have he didnt even think twice 3- betting. If negreanu manages to say that he has Aces or kings that will be top pair, if negreanu say that he has aces and still plays he is hinting on having 3 queens or two pair on the flop or maybe even spades.

      Yeah, it's also because the opponent doesn't have to show you his hand if you fold but does if you call in order to prove he won. If Daniel calls, he gets to see if he was right.

      @Sammus 9474 dude, not to be offensive, but i tink ur not a software dev, anyway, on daniel, no he doesn't do all that math, that would require a prodigal ability, and the guy didn't show any signs of it, here have a look on this from his wiki page :
      When he was several credits short of graduation, he dropped out of high school and began his life as a rounder playing at local charity casinos
      So it is trivial that he knew that his opponent had aces from his experience, hell the guy learnt to play on 15.

      @Sammus 9474 it may very well fall into that, but its just a simple particular case of that branch. you always have the same 52 cards each single hand. As long as you know a few formulas its piss easy to calculate your odds and probabilities.

  • enilenis
    enilenis Year ago +15

    Daniel is good at guessing pairs. He can tell when the person gets a pair, and then needs community cards to guess which pair specifically. In the last bit he's asking: "Pair of 4's or pair of 6's. He knows the card is in the flop section, but the flop contained both, a 6 and a 4, so he can't differentiate which one. Just knows there was a pair and that the person looked excited, when they saw the flop. He's less successful with random cards, but also gets them sometimes, if there is a clear match on the last 2 community cards. Daniel's great at pretending he's not watching people. I wish they had a camera on him constantly, to follow his eyeline. They cut so frequently, it's impossible to see everything. I'd even settle for a splitscreen. One thing I love about Daniel is how respectful and humble he is for his rank category. Pleasure to watch him win or lose. He can take defeat like a gentleman. He commands attention.

He's just exploiting every aspect of the game is all. Lots of practice :)

As a result, you started making money off the local kids by playing poker against them. That's where you discovered your love for the game. You're at this tournament hoping to win big for your 2 year old son and the daughter that you have on the way. You're gonna name her Charlotte but I think Avery would be better. Anyway you have pocket rockets, lemme see em."

  • DeanAnderz
    DeanAnderz 9 months ago

    I’ve seen many of Daniels’ reads, however, I read AA and KK very often as you can tell when someone is strong and not with anything on the board. The only time someone is hard to read with AA or KK is when they limp and check it all down but even then it’s quite obvious. Not lacking Daniels’ ability but think he’s got much better reads and calls than these clips.

    3:41 - Same trick. He calls his opponent's best possible hand, and then bets anyway. This gets the other guy thinking, "If he thinks I have kings, and he still thinks he can beat me, I had better fold." Daniel is not reading the other player's hand, he is doing a sophisticated bluff. Good players don't fall for it, as in this case.

    I played poker pretty seriously for a couple of years and was able to read someone's hand (exact hand) exactly one time. Lost the hand, but ended up huge because the rest of the table was so freaked out that they thought I was able to do it regularly and were chucking winning hands because they thought I got a read on them. Have had it done to me maybe twice. Feels like a bucket of icewater dumped on your head, really is kinda freaky. Insane that Negreanu is able to do it with such consistency.

  • Catalinul
    Catalinul 2 years ago +4

    My guess on how he does it, is this: He looks at those 5 cards that are on the table and he calculates the variations that these 5 cards can make with a player's hand and so it's "easy" for him to see the best hand, so first game, he saw AA and now in the second game he sees kings.

    Actually the first guy played right into Negreanu's hands. He simply assumed he has pocket A's and then the guy gives him the information he's looking for by checking thinking he'll make Negreanu think otherwise. If he would have continued raising I am sure 100% Negreanu would have changed his mind.

    He's played so many hands in his years to understand pacing. Most of these reads are players being to eager with having a good hand that they don't slow things down to confuse their opponent. The body language and pacing says it all, and negreanu was quick to pick theirs up.

    The pocket 4's guy couldn't have done any more to give away the strength of his hand. Flatting a raise on that dry flop into two other players then checking the turn behind on an unscary card is an absolute dead giveaway you have a monster. Daniel obviously made the read like the pro he is, but that's the stuff that 1/2 NL players do thinking they're so sneaky.

    That "he's got aces" call has a dual purpose. Remember, the only hand that beats him in that moment is kings and aces. But Negreanu is REPPING pocket queens, giving him a set on the flop. "Give him an ace over there!", that is, give him the set of aces to beat his pretended set of queens. Of course, Negreanu is not betting his "set", it's just mind games, but wow, it's super spooky and effective.

    It's all about betting patterns. Guys like Negreanu write books about poker, specifically how much to bet in a given situation to min/max the risk/reward. It doesn't take too much guesswork if a player follows the formulaic betting responses to know what kind of hand an opposing player has.

      Everything you do at the table conveys information. How you move and how your body reacts is a small part of it. But more information is given by how a person plays rather than his actions.
      The longer the hand goes on for, the more information you're conveying and that allows people to narrow down the possibilities of what cards you have.
      Generally you'd pay more attention to why a person called or why they raised in context to the situation.
      So on the second video for example. I'll take it as though I know Daniel's cards, but I don't know Sexton's cards.
      *Sexton raises pre-flow to 22,000. Negreanu calls.*
      So sexton is quite confident in his cards. But not overly so. It indicates that he's probably got a high card or two. The fact that negreanu called would give off the impression that Negreanu has cards he feels have a similar value. Meaning he has a high card or two.
      *Flop; 5, 7,6. *
      * Negreanu checks. Sexton checks*
      Now the flop was full of low numbers. Negreanu checked indicating he's not got a matchup.
      Sexton checks and this is where something feels wrong. Sexton raised pre-flop meaning he is confident in his cards. If he had a high card like a king or an Ace, he would have bet small here to feel for Negreanu's cards. If he had a pair, he would have bet small to try and ward off Negreanu. He doesn't have a straight otherwise he wouldn't have bet so much pre-flop with a small hand. So why would he check? Because he's hiding something. He probably had a pair in his hand. How big? Negreanu will have to determine.
      *Turn; 5,7,6,2.*
      *Negreanu's got a pair of 2s. He raises 30,000. Sexton calls.*
      Negreanu raised 30,000. Given that he's only called so far, 30,000 indicates that he's got something and it's good, but not quite the best hand possible. This is really just Negreanu's way of testing to see how good Sexton's pair is. Sexton called with no hesitation, showing to negreanu that he he doesn't care what Negreanu has, but he's still trying to hide it. In other words Sexton has a monster hand.
      *River; 5,7,6,2,5.*
      *Negreanu checks. Sexton bets 50,000*
      By this point Negreanu had already determined that Sexton has 2 pair and it's a bigger one than his own. But Sexton raising to 50,000 just confirmed it.
      How Negreanu pinned it down to KK is beyond me though.
      Of course this is my view from after the game. Negreanu probably had a completely different viewpoint.
