$250,000 Super High Roller

Four Hands from the Secondary Table

• Level 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Given it's the first level and stacks are so deep, there haven't really been any noteworthy pots. We recently watched four hands on the secondary table, and here are how they went:

Hand #1: Dan Smith, who won the $100,000 Challenge earlier in the week, raised to 3,000 from under the gun and received a call from Daniel Negreanu in the hijack. Smith continuation bet the {Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Spades} flop and Negreanu simply mucked.

Hand #2: Phil Ivey opened for 3,000 from the hijack and received calls from Nick Wong on the button, Winfred Yu in the small blind, and Dan Smith in the big. It was four-way action to the {Q-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop, which all the players checked. When the {4-Spades} hit the turn, Yu led out for 7,500 and the rest of the field folded.

Hand #3: Erik Seidel raised to 2,500 under the gun and was called by Wong in middle position and Negreanu in the small blind. Negreanu was first to act on the {3-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop and he checked, opening the door for Seidel to bet 4,500. It was enough to get the job done as both his opponents folded.

Hand #4: Smith raised to 3,000 from the cutoff only to have Negreanu three-bet to 9,500 from button. The blinds got out of the way and Smith released his hands.

We told you it wasn't much, but these are the sort of hands you can expect here in the early going.
