Negreanu Next to Go

Daniel Negreanu - out

Daniel Negreanu has been nursing a short stack all day long, and it finally came to a head. He got the last of his chips into the middle preflop with {A-Hearts} {J-Hearts}, and that was not at all good news when Dan Smith came along with his bigger stack and his bigger ace. It was {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds}, and Negreanu needed help in a hurry.

And help came in a hurry. The {J-Clubs} appeared right in the window, and the board was looking good for Kid Poker on fourth street: {4-Diamonds} {9-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {2-Diamonds}.

Negreanu knew something fishy was up, though, and he was not at all surprised to see the {Q-Hearts} land on the river to snatch his chips away on the final card. With a few giggles and warm wishes, Negreanu headed to the rail, and we're down to 14 players.

And two Dans.
