Blast From The Past: Daniel Negreanu And Antonio Esfandiari Go All In


A game hosted by Poker Night in America, shows Daniel Negreanu and Antonio Esfandiari butt heads with each other during an entertaining Twitch Celebrity Cash Game. Thrice during the game, both players decide to go all-in, a bold move in poker. Negreanu manages to win the pot each time. The video tells us a lot about how poker is played and even has a move that is not commonly seen, so let’s take a look.

Reading Your Opponents

Poker is not only about the chips or the kinds of cards you have. It’s also about knowing how to read and play your opponents. In all three rounds of the game, we can see how Negreanu reads Esfandiari. What looks like a spur of the moment decision from Negreanu is actually a calculated move. Everything you do on the poker table conveys some type of information to your opponents. This is why the ‘poker face’ term is so popular. Do what it takes to win.

Knowing The Odds

Chance or luck plays a very little role in poker. Along with knowing how to read your opponents, studying the game is another way one can excel. In any game of poker, the fall of the cards cannot be exactly determined but the probability of them appearing on the table can be studied. Which is why there are countless books analyzing game strategies and the math behind poker, you can check them out here. By knowing the odds of each hand, Negreanu was able to make a decision that gave him the best outcome.

What does ‘running it twice’ mean?

In the video, you might have observed the dealer open extra cards on the table. If you’re only familiar with the basics of poker, this might confuse you. But it is actually a common practice when playing cash games. The term ‘running it twice’ is used to refer to this type of situation. When players declare all-in before the flop, running it twice would result in 2 flops, 2 turns, and 2 river cards being dealt. The player who wins both rounds would then win the pot. The pot gets divided if both players win a round each. It is done to allow players to minimize their probability of incurring a loss.
