Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu limped from the small blind and Igor Kurganov checked in the big blind. The flop was {J-Spades} {7-Hearts} {4-Clubs} and Negreanu called a 120,000 Kurganov bet. The turn paired the board when the {J-Diamonds} showed an appearance and this time Kurganov changed tact when he checked. Negreanu bet 230,000 and Kurganov made the call. The final card was the {8-Spades} and Kurganov checked again. Negreanu quickly reached into his stack and pulled out a tower of red 25k chips and pushed 550,000 into the middle. Kurganov tanked for the longest time but eventually did make the call.

"I have a jack," said Negreanu.

He turned over {J-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} and Kurganov mucked his hand.
