Somerville Gets There Against Negreanu

Jason Somerville raised to 1,600 from the hijack seat and Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu called from the big blind. From there, the dealer ran out the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop and Negreanu checked. Somerville fired a continuation bet of 1,800 and Negreanu called.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the {K-Diamonds} fall on the river. That river card brought in a backdoor flush draw along with a gutshot straight draw and Negreanu bet 3,200. Somerville raised to 8,500 and Negreanu tanked for a bit.

As he so often does, Negreanu began thinking things through out loud. He rambled off his thoughts on the hand and what he thought Somerville could have before eventually making the call. Somerville tabled the {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for a Broadway straight on the river and Negreanu mucked his hand, claiming to have aces up. Negreanu thought jack-ten was one of the possible hands Somerville could hold.
