Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Negreanu Shoves, Survives

Shamus • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Daniel Skolovy opened with a raise to 16,000 from middle position, and it folded around to Daniel Negreanu in the big blind who reraised all in for 118,000 total.

Negreanu counted out his chips for Skolovy's benefit as the cameras gathered. "I got 118, bro," he said with a grin, then began to address the camera, saying something about Vancouver and referencing the riots that followed the recent conclusion of the NHL Game 7 final.

"If I lose this hand, I'm going to flip over this table," said Skolovy with a wide smile, and all laughed.

The conversation continued, with Negreanu spelling out the exact pot odds Skolovy had to call. Eventually he folded, and both players showed their hands -- {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for Skolovy, {K-Hearts}{k-Spades} for Negreanu. And no riot ensued, except for the laughing kind.

Negreanu goes to the break with 146,000, while Skolovy has 430,000.
