Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

New High for Negreanu

Shamus • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

We caught up with this one on the turn with the board showing {8-Spades}{2-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}. Daniel Negreanu, sitting in middle position, had 37,000 in front of him, and his lone opponent sitting in the big blind was making the call. The river brought the {6-Hearts} and a check from Negreanu's opponent. Negreanu fired a bet of 48,000, and his opponent immediately called again.

"Flush," said Negreanu, showing his {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, and his opponent mucked. Negreanu stepped away from the table to allow himself a bit of celebration. "I've got more chips now than I've ever had… Yes!" he said, alluding to his frequent short-stacked status thus far in the Main Event.

Negreanu is still below the average, but his stack of 330,000 looks just fine to him at the moment.

Tagovi: Daniel Negreanu
