Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

I can't tell you exactly why I'm watching, I guess a lack of content.

But Neg's "GTO talk" is insufferable. Just randomly saying GTO every 4 minutes, trying to explain it to Phil, saying all the young kids are GTO bros, BRO.

I'm waiting for him to bring up Doge Coin, and tell us how he owned 2 million a few years back, like every 2/5NL player I've ever sat next to.

Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

This is the best scenario for PokerGo since should DNegs win the next match there will be at least two more after that. Can't imagine the poker world letting 30 days go by without someone wanting to step in before DNegs would be allowed to cash out .. with a record of 1-2! GL

Is zoom zoom poker the next big thing? Hellmuth is so much better than you nerds.

Daniel is the perfect spokesman for GGpoker - a rec who thinks he's good but who can't beat the game and donates to the poker ecosystem trying to.

Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

At least the match ended when Daniel was relatively deep so we won’t have another nerd fest analyzing the short stack play

You have to hand it to Hellmuth for his play last night

Jeesh, Daniel has been getting pounded since taking NLHE HU.

Losing millions left and right.

Should probably hang up the old heads up hat.

Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

The two biggest hands of the match were Phil Hellmuth 102 diamonds vs daniel 97diamonds. This hand was towards the end of the match, phil bluffing the whole way, both pick up a flush draw on turn , no diamond on river phil goes all in, daniel hit like 3rd or 4th pair on the river and folded to phils all in, believe he was getting something like 6/1 odds too.

The other hand was 45 clubs, someone turned a flush draw and straight draw ,which happened early on cant remember exact details of that hand.

Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

Not a DNegs fan, but even so, fair to say that Phil is the winner. Unless he loses 3 in a row. But if he can win 1 of the next hypothetical 3, he walks away with his head held high.

Even if Dnegs wins the next two and Phil quits, it's still a win and a tie where he was a consensus underdog twice.

Well done sir.

Glad to see DNegs being civil.

My favorite part is Phil's celebratory fork full for 6 hour old white-sauce pasta or chicken

For Doug "retirement" is a euphemism for "becoming a bumhunter". (Although he's delusional in this case, as Phil def has the advantage)

Has anyone entered all hand histories from the match into a database to be easily analyzed?

Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

Tell Doug to play Phil heads up live for 5k hands. Phil would certainly be the favorite. Oh wait he won't because he's retired, wait... nvm he's not retired... wait he is again ... I'm confused

anyway I'm honestly amazed that Doug wants to play 25k hands again, he seemed very done with HU three months ago

If Phil beats Doug, Doug should consider retiring from poker.

Re: Hellmuth vs. Negreanu "High Stakes Duel 2" Confirmed

At this point, you have to at least give Hellmuth credit for keeping his opponents off-balance. I trust the math of GTO, and I don't think he'll be +EV against someone just sticking to GTO and hoping the variance goes their way, but it seems like everyone who comes in trying to exploit Hellmuth ends up being exploited themselves. It looked like Negreanu really didn't want to go out on a limb and put a lot of chips in to call down Hellmuth light, but by doing that he made Phil's tilt-induced zoom-zoom an accidentally brilliant strategy.

Phill's game seems to based purely on timing, which is in turn based purely on his Poker Senses.

Funny stuff.
