YouTube can always be relied upon to provide entertaining poker videos, but PokerStars‘ YouTube Channel has been providing especially great material lately, offering a steady stream of poker videos centred around a “Top 5” theme. Three new ones have been added recently, so allow us to introduce them for you.
Top 5 Hero Calls
In this video, we get to see what top class poker is really about. In a world where there are an abundance of cooler videos and situations where hands play themselves, this is a video for the poker purists. Awe inspiring calls by some of the finest players around, and often under the intense pressure of big tournament final tables. We get to see a hero call that helped launch Jason Mercier into the spotlight, along with great calls by Danish player Sander Lylloff, Erik Seidel and Davidi Kitai. Steve O’Dwyer also shows why he’s so consistent in winning High Roller tournaments.
Top 5 Poker Moments
This video takes a closer look at some of the key poker moments in recent times through the eyes of PokerStars. Ronaldo announces his arrival on the live poker scene, Daniel Negreanu takes a bad beat with a smile, Steve O’Dwyer runs bad for once and Victoria Coren-Mitchell becomes the first ever two-time EPT winner. Also, we are treated to Negreanu and Ivey having a very sociable heads up match live on camera.
Top 5 Poker Rivals
If you enjoy the human element of poker, and the emotions that can sometimes bubble up to the surface, then this is the video for you. Tony G aims one of his patented verbal volleys at Robl, while Daniel Negreanu goes to war with Erik Seidel. Lesser known players Maurice Hawkins and Shyam Srinivasan also get tangled in a heated war of words at the PCA, while Dan Shak exasperates Vanessa Selbst with serious money on the line. To cap it all off, Tony G once again does what he does best, this time letting loose on the ever opinionated Phil Hellmuth.
