Texas Hold'em on the internet was like the Wild West back in 2008 and 2009. This was the golden age of high stakes poker online, where the biggest games of all time took place. The $500/$1,000 stakes were often referred to as Rail Heaven, and were aptly named.
Doug Polk takes a look at the 5 largest all-time pots in NLHE and breaks down each street of action. All of these hands feature familiar faces such as Tom "Durrrr" Dwan, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Phil Ivey, and John Juanda. Each hand is dissected and analyzed, as Doug breaks down each player's decision and shares his thoughts on what the best play would have been.
