Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Not a Great Start for Negreanu

• Level 6: 250-500, 50 ante

Daniel Negreanu opened for 1,175 only to have fellow Canadian Kyle Johnson three-bet to 3,400. Action folded back to Negreanu who called, and the flop came down {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Negreanu checked, as did Johnson, and the dealer burned and turned the {7-Diamonds}.

Negreanu took the opportunity to bet 5,500, but he failed to shake Johnson. When the {10-Spades} completed the board on the river, Negreanu bet 11,500 and Johnson wasted little time in making the call.

"Nut-low," Negreanu joked and showed the {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a missed flush.

"Could have been a big pot," Johnson said as he rolled over the {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} for the win.
