Daniel Negreanu is Our Bubble Boy

Daniel Negreanu - 4th place

Patrik Antonius raised to 100,000 from the button and after Gus Hansen folded his small blind, Daniel Negreanu announced that he was all in for around 750,000. Antonius snap-called and Negreanu knew he was in trouble.



Negreanu had run into a big pocket pair, and the severity of the situation was not lost on him. He was in desperate need of an ace, but the {4-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} lacked a bullet. The {9-Clubs} turn was also a blank, and the {10-Diamonds} river made Negreanu the bubble boy.

"Never had a hand for, like, the last hour and a half," Negreanu said before making a quick exit from the tournament area. We are now three handed with each player guaranteed at least $800,000.
