After the last session, the High Stakes Feud team interviewed Negreanu, and he only appointed that he felt good with his game and that he had some unfortunate sports. 

Exciting hands:

  • With 20k in the pot from the flop, Doug check-raised in the turn and won 34k after Negreanu folded.
  • In a board 432K, Daniel overbets twice the pot, and both pros checked on the river (another 4). Doug was trying to trap Negreanu with a four, and he confessed he had a top pair from the flop.
