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 lacked a bullet. The turn was also a blank, and the 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.
