OK, so in this hand there is a lot to it. Obviously Phil Hellmuth and I go way back and have played a lot of hands against each other and I've picked up a good amount of tendencies that-- you know, and traps that he falls into. There's also going to be an opportunity here to really sort of make a live read, not only just by looking at Phil but also some of the things he says. We're going to look at how his bet size in this situation limits the range of hands that he can have. So let's take a look here at this hand from the "Big Game". ANNOUNCER: How about a reraise to 3,600? DANIEL NEGREANU: All right, let's stop it right there. So don't try this at home. This should have a viewer discretion is advised across the bottom because obviously 6-2 suited isn't a hand that should be in your three-betting range. But as I said, I do have a metagame with Phil Hellmuth that goes back many, many years, and I sensed his raise there is going to be pretty light, and I don't mind playing hands in position with him. Plus, there's the added bonus of we're on TV. We're trying to play a little more loose and have more fun and, you know, create some fun hands. So all of that went into my decision making here. As far as Phil's range, you know, he is raising under the gun. One of the things we know about Hellmuth is with some of his stronger hands like, you know, 9 10s, jacks, ace-king, ace-queen, his raise sizing is bigger. So what we can extrapolate from this is the fact that he's just made a min raise, we can eliminate some of the stronger hands from his range, you know, like the aces, kings, queens. A lot of those big hands, ace-king, he's going to make a bigger raise a lot of the time. And that's a trap you don't want to fall into. You should pick a raise size for these situations and raise your entire range the same amount. Phil here is giving away information by making a min raise with, you know, a weaker hand, which is king-10. And I knew at this time in his career that we could eliminate the strongest part of his range of hands. ANNOUNCER: Forget the loose cannon. Daniel's now trying to isolate Phil Hellmuth. ANNOUNCER: Doyle pocket jacks. ANNOUNCER: Don't think he was counting on Doyle waking up with such a big hand. - Who lost the last pot? DANIEL NEGREANU: Let's stop it right here. So obviously when I make this three bet and Doyle Brunson calls on the button, we know we're in big trouble because Doyle's range here is going to be extremely narrow. Now we can probably eliminate aces and kings from his range because he's probably going to four bet here. Frankly, he should be reraising with these jacks as well in this situation on the button. He likes to call, but now we've basically got him pigeonholed on a range that looks like some ace-king, some ace-queen suiteds-- he's going to fold ace-queen offsuit in this situation, that much we know-- and, you know, hands like 9s, 10s, or jacks. So you'd never want to be in situations w...

It's been inspirational. Since watching it, I've started re-reading all my poker books such as Super Series but I'm gaining all new information from them. Sadly I reside in the middle of nowhere and prefer live games to online, but come the holidays the local tables better watch out! If I do well enough locally, I may even trial a trip to Vegas.
