Flashback Friday: Phil Hellmuth Thinks He Has A Read On Daniel Negreanu But FAILS Terribly


Poker enthusiasts, the best way to start your weekend is to reminisce about some of the most memorable poker hands, isn’t it? So today, we bring to you a classic blow-up of Phil Hellmuth when he lost to Daniel Negreanu after being a bit cocky about his reads on his rival.

Both poker pros are undoubtedly among the undisputed legends of the game right now, but there was a time when both players were still making a mark in the world of poker. Let’s go back to the time when the Poker Brat and DNegs clashed in High Stakes Poker. 

The hand starts off with Hellmuth(A 4 ) raising first to $3,500 before seeing Negreanu (A T ) bet $7,000 as Hellmuth calls while we wait for the flop. Hellmuth states that DNegs is playing with Jacks while which is wrong. Negreanu said that he will be betting $10,000 just before the flop.

Once the fop of A 6 T opened up, Negreanu stuck to his word and pushed $10K into the pot. The six-time WSOP winner got his two-pair and was quite happy with the way the flop panned out. Hellmuth calls to see the turn card pop out as the 2 , which saw KidPoker raise by $25,000.

Questioning the raise, Hellmuth was heard saying, “25K! Why so much, Daniel?” as Negreanu just responded with a smile.  Shouting, “You got me”, Hellmuth makes the call while indicating that he has a weak ace as the 7 comes out on the river. Not sure of what Hellmuth was thinking but telling Negreanu about his hand, the Palo Alto resident dug up his own grave. 

The 17-time WSOP winner checks while his counterpart thinks of what should be his next bet. While holding a wads of cash,Hellmuth asks him to stay at $10,000. However, DNegs did what he does best: listen to his own self and bet $40,000, which was eventually matched.

DNegs shows off his two-pair to walk away with the staggering pot, valued at $165,700. After losing the pot, Hellmuth goes into ranting mode, dropping F bombs and continues to cry about Negreanu raising him. Well, given the fact that he looked silly and walked right into the trap, Hellmuth needs to be very careful with his reads.
