The Professionals vs. Team PokerStars

Negreanu Wins Table 1; Stars Sweeps


On Hand #66 at Table 1, Daniel Negreanu min-raised to 80 on the button. Gus Hansen three-bet to 240 from the big blind, Negreanu moved all in for 1,520, and Hansen called.

Negreanu: {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Hansen: {a-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

The {q-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} gave Hansen a royal flush draw, but Negreanu also made a pair of tens. The {5-Clubs} on the turn gave Hansen two extra outs to eliminate Negreanu, but teh {k-Clubs} bricked on the river. The match was then even at 3,000 a piece.

Ten hands later, Negreanu min-raised to 100 on the button. Hansen three-bet to 300, Negreanu four-bet to 600, and Hansen five-bet to 1,250. Negreanu moved all in for effectively 2,010, and Hansen snap-called.

Negreanu: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Hansen: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}

"I don't like my chances," Hansen sighed.

Negreanu indeed held as the board rolled out {3-Spades}{7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, and the match was over. PokerStars has swept Full Tilt Poker three to nil, while Negreanu himself is looking for a sweep of his own.

"He stuck it right in my..." Hansen started. "I probably shouldn't say that."
