Negreanu Picks Off McDonald


Picking up the action on the turn of a {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} board with what looked to be about 7,500 in the pot, Mike "Timex" McDonald check-called a bet of 5,200 from Daniel Negreanu. The river brought the {6-Hearts} and McDonald fired 9,900. Negreanu thought it over for about 20 seconds before tossing in the chips to call.

McDonald showed {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, while Negreanu tabled {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} for kings and threes to win the pot.

Chip stacks
Mike McDonald ca 252,000 -16,000
Daniel Negreanu ca 190,000 20,000
