      Greenstein vs Farha
      One of the most famous hands at all. This hand was the last hand of the 5th episode of the first season. Barry Greenstein gets dealt pocket aces and Sam Farha pocket kings. Greenstein 3bets preflop and Sam Farha pushes all-in after a long time of thinking. Greenstein calls quickly but on the flop Farha catches a king and wins the $361,800 pot.

      In the third season Daniel Negreanu offers High Stakes Poker commentator Gabe Kaplan to change seats. Kaplan plays two episodes with the pros while Negreanu is a moderator. Gabe Kaplan gets the former buy-in of $100,000 from Doyle Brunson. After the two episodes Kaplan leaves the table as a winner.
