I Wanna Eat You Up

Fresh from taking the scalp of Max Lykov, Daniel Negreanu raised to 44,000 in the cutoff. Artem Litvinov was seated in the big blind and pulled a coin out of his pocket, placed it on his fingertip and stared at it.

"Flip, flip, flip," said Negreanu.

Litvinov did flipped his coin and when it landed on the palm of his hand he moved his chips into the middle of the table - he was all in.

"Remember when I promised I would eat you..maybe this is the time…but I don't have a great hand…its suited though," said Negreanu. Then talking to the dealer he said, "Can you pull the 44,000 in for this old mans brain…I like this hand…it looks so good…i wanna call…if you have ace-king it's ok."

With that Litvinov tells Negreanu that he doesn't have ace-king and instead he has a pair of tens. Negreanu calls immediately and Litvinov was telling porky pies.

Litvinov{A-Clubs} {10-Spades}

Litvinov yelled out in jubilation before hugging and kissing his good lady on the rail.

"When we get heads-up…you can eat me then," said Litvinov.
