Negreanu Back in the Game

[user66118] • Level 6: 1,500-3,000, 400 ante

Don't call it a comeback! On the last hand before the break, we watched Daniel Negreanu fight his way back above his starting stack for the first time in a long time. Three players (including Kid Poker) checked through a {2-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} flop, and the {J-Hearts} turn drew a bet of 12,000 from David Benefield. Only Negreanu had the goods to continue, and his raise to 37,000 forced out the monkey in the middle. Benefield called, though, and the {5-Clubs} filled out the board. Negreanu bet 72,000 at the pot, and Benefield made a reluctant call.

The {2-Hearts} {2-Clubs} appeared in front of Negreanu, and Benefield tucked and mucked.
