Barry Greenstein, Tom Dwan clash in huge poker hand

900k pot

In a hand that generated the largest pot in televised poker history, professional poker players Barry Greenstein and Tom Dwan mixed it up for more than $919,000 in Sunday's installment of "High Stakes Poker" on GSN (Cox cable channel 344).

Greenstein held pocket aces to Dwan's king and queen of spades. All the money went in after the flop came 2-4-queen, with the deuce and the 4 both spades. Dwan won the pot when a queen came on the turn and the river blanked.

The fifth season of "High Stakes Poker," airing at 9 p.m. Sundays, was taped in December at the Golden Nugget. It chronicles a no-limit Texas hold 'em cash game rather than a tournament. All players were required to sit down at the table with at least $200,000.
