That is just SICK. One would be happy to have that kind of hand once in a lifetime.

Hats off to Daniel for taking the beat like only a great player would. Could you imagine Hellmuth on the recieving end of that? Or even Matasou? omg....that would be interesting to see, to say the least ;)

I'm actually surprised he didn't lay that down. He was actually talking himself out of calling towards the end. I guess he finally figured he had good odds on the call and went for it.

Excellent clip! I've not come across High Stakes Poker in the UK, so I spent a couple of hours going through similar YouTube clips as well.

Got a question though - obviously to low, low rollers such as myself, a half million pot is jaw-dropping, and as WAYLANDER says, one can only dream. However, what does a half million pot acually mean to Gus and Daniel in real financial terms? Does anyone have an idea how much money they each have in the bank?

I can only assume that pot was probably about 1% [probably much less] of their BR

Daniel issued a general challenge a year ago and played quite a few hi-stakes heads-up matches. Some of them were for a million. I read his blog and he doesn't seem to lose any sleep over playing at this level.
