Negreanu and Kirsch Run Into Coolers

ajlamers • Level 10: 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante
Daniel Negreanu

The eliminations have been coming fast and furious and some of the pots have been monstrous. At one table, Isaac Haxton opened to 11,000 and was met by an all in for around 110,000 from Richard Kirsch. Haxton quickly made the call and tabled {k-Spades}{k-Hearts} against Kirsch's {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The board ran out {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} and Haxton slightly had Kirsch covered.

Across the room, Bryn Kenney opened to 12,000 from the hijack and Dan Shak three-bet to 60,000 from the cutoff. Daniel Negreanu was in the big blind and four-bet shoved all in for 322,000. Kenney quickly got out of the way and Shak made the call. Negreanu turned over {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and Shak was behind with {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Negreanu was still in good shape to win the hand. The {3-Clubs} on the turn gave Shak a flush draw and the {5-Clubs} on the river completed the flush for him. Shak had Negreanu covered by a couple thousand and took down a huge pot to move into the chip lead.
