Kurganov Surges to the Front

Igor Kurganov raised to 100,000 from the button and Daniel Negreanu called from the big blind. On the {Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop, Negreanu led for 150,000 and Kurganov called.

The turn was the {3-Spades} and both players checked to see the {K-Diamonds} land on the river. Negreanu fired 365,000 and Kurganov fired back with a raise to what looked to be 865,000. Negreanu was verbal in stating that he didn't expect the raise and then folded his hand. Kurganov offered that Negreanu could pick one card, but Negreanu said he didn't need to see it.
