Negreanu Slipping

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu hasn't been having the best level so far.

In a recent hand, a player in middle position opened for 9,500 and was called by Negreanu in the hi-jack and another player in the cutoff.

The flop came {5-Spades}{7-Spades}{K-Hearts} and all three players checked. The turn brought a {4-Hearts} and the original raiser checked again, prompting a 20,000 bet from Negreanu. The player on the cutoff folded but the player in middle position re-raised enough to put Negreanu all in.

"Aww, why did I bet?" Negreanu lamented. Negreanu tanked for a bit and then folded. His opponent flipped over {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for two-pair and a flush draw.

"Wow, you have me crushed," Negreanu said. "I had seven-six of clubs."

In the very next hand, Negreanu opened for 9,500 and was called by the button and big blind.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and the big blind checked. Negreanu c-bet for 18,000 and was called by the button. The big blind folded.

Both players checked the {10-Diamonds} turn, however, when the {2-Clubs} completed the board, Negreanu checked and his opponent pushed in 70,000 - much to the dismay of Negreanu.

"What in the world is going on?" Negreanu said. "Why so much? I was gonna insta..."

Negreanu began announcing potential hands his opponent could have.

"Ace-five of spades...?" Negreanu said. He then folded. "You had a straight."

In any case, Negreanu is down to 120,000.
