Daniel Negreanu

We have lost PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu in fifth place in the hand before the first break here in the Bahamas as the $25,750 PokerStars Championship High Roller is getting nearer and nearer a winner.

Negreanu made it 60,000 and Michael Rocco called. Nick Petrangelo raised, and that was enough for Negreanu to put it all into the middle. Petrangelo made a very quick call.

Nick Petrangelo: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Daniel Negreanu: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

The flop of {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} was an absolute sweat-killer, with Negreanu sarcastically observing 'Ah, good flop for me!" and after the {3-Spades} turn and {9-Diamonds} river completed the hand, the Canadian poker legend was shaking hands. All five players left the table, but only four will return.
