Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Robinson Doubles Through Negreanu

Shamus • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Daniel Negreanu opened for 24,000 from middle position and it folded back to a super-short-stacked Ralph Robinson who pushed all in for 63,000 from the small blind. The big blind got out, and after some thought Negreanu called.

Negreanu had {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and Robinson {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}. The flop came {5-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{J-Hearts}, giving Robinson a set and Negreanu a pair. The {2-Spades} on the turn meant no river could give Negreanu the hand, and Robinson doubled to 156,000.

Negreanu meanwhile is now the main feature table's shortest stack with 108,000 -- just nine big blinds.
