In this article, we deliver you a couple of selected poker videos of the past week.
The Greatest Bluffs of the Year by PokerGO
We want to wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. As the old year is getting closer and closer to the end, the PokerGO YouTube channel keeps putting out great compilations of the last poker year. This one is about one of the best known and most celebrated aspects of our favorite card game: bluffing. Yes, taking a big pot down with the worse hand has always been the marker of poker greatness. After all, it’s easy to win when the deck is being generous to you. This video features poker greats such as Phil Ivey (who’s on the “folding end” of an ambitious bluff this time), Wiktor “limitless” Malinowski, Michael Addamo; and what commentator Jamie Kerstetter dubbed “the dirty diaper”, 3-2 off-suit, bluffing off pocket Kings in the WSOP Main Event.
Tom Dwan Back at Hustlers’ High Stakes Cash Table
This passing year has seen the rise of a new great poker content creator. The Hustlers Casino in Gardena, California started streaming their live cash action on YouTube, and invited some bona fide poker celebs to their game. One of the biggest names was definitely Tom “durrrr” Dwan, who was recently back to play some $100/$200/$400 No Limit Hold’em. You can watch an hour of the “after hours” action below. Enjoy!
Best Phil Hellmuth Hands of 2021 by PokerGO
Phil Hellmuth unquestionably had a wonderful 2021. He defeated Daniel Negreanu 3 out of 3 times in the “Heads-Up Duel” Sit&Go’s, he won his 16th WSOP gold bracelet extending his record, and was heads-up for his 17th shortly after (but, alas, he lost that one). PokerGO tried to condense that eventful “Poker Brat” year into a 13-minute video. While that is a tall order, one thing is for sure: there was plenty of footage to pick and choose from. You can relive some of the best Hellmuth moments 2021 had to offer below.
Rampage at the Wynn Las Vegas
Ethan “rampagepoker” Yau also had a successful year. He’s been constantly in a solid second place behind Brad Owen in terms of YouTube views among poker vloggers. Recently, he’s been playing tournaments, rather than cash games. In this $550 Daily event at the Wynn in Las Vegas, he went on the rungood of his life in the first hour, winning 6 (!) all-in pots, in 4 of which he got it in as an underdog. Eventually, the luckbox ran out, so he ended up taking 35th place out of 675 players for $1,982. This tournament was played back in November, but Yau posted the vlog this week.
