In this edition of Poker Hands Negreanu faces off against Doug Polk in the richest tournament ever conceived. With over $37 million in the pool, both players have bought in for $1,000,000, and every chip counts. The Big One For One Drop is not your average WSOP (World Series of Poker) event. This one creates legends, like Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Dan Colman, and Antonio Esfandiari.
In this hand, Doug Polk makes a highly unorthodox play, betting a tiny amount on the turn. Daniel Negreanu must decide what to do with his overpair of Queens, which haven't improved, but may very well be the best hand. Doug himself analyzes the decisions made by both players and explains the reasoning behind his quirky play.
Poker Hands is a series in which Doug analyzes televised hands and shares his thoughts. New episodes are uploaded every Monday (and sometimes Thursday).
