Daniel Negreanu or ‘Kid Poker’ as he is widely known in the global poker circuit, is one of the best players in today’s world. The charismatic poker player is a part of the creme de la creme of the global poker community. The former PokerStars ambassador is most widely known for his almost clairvoyant ability to read cards. Many videos have seen this poker master correctly guess the cards his opponents are holding and even manages to correctly guess what cards will fall on the board. Here are some of those mind-blowing moments.
Watching Negreanu play is truly an entertaining sight. His out-going personality on the felts is one trait that this professional player is known for. This video shows us exactly how he uses it to psychologically play with his opponent’s mind. While it is unclear how he does it, there’s no doubt that his loud guess on his opponent’s hand being pocket kings was what got him the pot.
When going heads up with one of the best players in the world, remember that he just might call your bluff. In this battle, we see Negreanu being an obvious winner, but his opponent’s bluff makes him second guess his lead. However, going with his gut instincts, he calls the massive raise, and it turns out that was just the right decision.
The Season 5 World Poker Tour (WPT) Five Diamond World Poker Classic witnessed one of the best calls by Daniel Negreanu. Playing with hole cards a A♣️K♥️, Negreanu was a favourite to win the pot. Calling his opponent’s USD 1 million raise was definitely one of the best decisions as he took home the USD 2 million worth pot with a heart flush.
We don’t know what Negreanu was on, but if his consistent play and brilliant calls are a thing to go by, then it’s that he deserves a spot among the stalwarts. Not only is he good at guessing his opponents’ cards or bluffs, it turns out he’s pretty good at guessing the board cards as well. Watch him as he correctly guesses the turn and river cards and gets a straight flush as well.
