Daniel Negreanu answers your PokerStars School questions
If you've ever wondered how Daniel Negreanu developed his reading abilities, when he realised poker was his profession, and if he ever limps with aces, you're in luck.
Negreanu was a "guest lecturer" at PokerStars School last night
Last night Kid Poker himself sat down and replied to some questions set by members of the PokerStars School community on Twitter. Here's a look at Negreanu's answers.
Q: WOULD YOU EVER LIMP WITH ACES PRE-FLOP? - Top Note
@StarsSchool there are some spots where I may do that but it's extremely rare. I wouldn't worry too much about it for now.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) March 11, 2019
Only spots I usually limp are SB and maybe the Button 3 handed. pic.twitter.com/3G6MGqzX3T
Q: HOW DO YOU GET MAX VALUE FROM MONSTER HANDS?- Tompong99
@StarsSchool depends on your opponents tendencies and how aggressive they are. If they bluff a lot, slow play. If they are weak and timid you have to bet your own hand!— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) March 11, 2019
As for reading people, pay attention to anything outside the norm and collect data. pic.twitter.com/oVkF4kG8j4
Q: HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY RIVER DECISIONS?- toche8503
@StarsSchool in tournaments it's actually correct to be a little more careful on the river and value survival or max value on the hand.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) March 11, 2019
In cash, before you raise just consider what you will do if the player reraises. If you don't know... don't raise. pic.twitter.com/E2UJjVlVYE

Q: ARE YOUR LIVE READS INSTINCTIVE OR DID YOU DEVELOP THEM OVER TIME?- ItsThePits
@StarsSchool it's both instinctive and developed. I always had a good feel for this kind of thing but as I studied body language more I learned how to improve upon that natural ability. pic.twitter.com/SW9Yi4dwgI— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) March 11, 2019
Q: DO YOU ALWAYS GO WITH YOUR FIRST INSTINCTS?- savageprince
@StarsSchool first step is recognize what my instinct wants me to do.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) March 11, 2019
Then I go over the play of the hand and see if there are any clues.
If after that I still don't have a clear answer... always go with your first instinct. pic.twitter.com/EiF9IInZUN
