Negreanu is Not the King of this Ward

Chad_Holloway • Level 7: 200-400, 50 ante
Daniel Negreanu

We missed the elimination of reigning WSOP APAC Main Event champ Daniel Negreanu, but Jesse Sylvia was kind enough to fill us in on the details.

According to him, Phil Ward opened with a raise and Sylvia called from the button. A short-stacked Negreanu called from the big blind, and three players saw a {2-}{2-}{6-} rainbow flop. Negreanu checked, Ward bet 1,200, and Sylvia called. Negreanu then check-raised all in for roughly 3,000 more, Ward called, and Sylvia got out of the way.

Negreanu: {6-}{10-}
Ward: {j-}{j-}

Negreanu had flopped two pair, but it was no good as Ward held jacks and deuces. Neither the turn nor river help Negreanu, and he was eliminated from the tournament here in Level 7.
