Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

NegreAAnu Busts Goldberg


The action folded to Daniel Negreanu who opened to 2,200 on the button. Fred Goldberg put in a three-bet from the small blind, and in the blink of an eye, all the chips were in the middle.

Negreanu: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Goldberg: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

There was a brief pause to wait for the ESPN cameras - a pause that Goldberg was not a fan of.

"I'm the one all in," he griped. "Let's just go."

The dealer ignored him, waiting for the camera crew, and once they arrived he fanned a flop of {a-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Goldberg stood to shake Negreanu's hand, basically drawing dead, and the {6-Hearts} on the turn sealed the deal.

The {9-Diamonds} on the river was but a formality, and Goldberg's 2011 Main Event dreams went down the drain. Negreanu, who has had difficulty all day, was all smiles, and is now flirting with the 100,000 chip threshold.
