Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Negreanu Bubbles $10K PLH Championship

Daniel Negreanu

When it comes to Daniel Negreanu, there is no doubt the man plays for first. This was just evidenced on the money bubble of the $10K PLH Championship as Negreanu was eliminated as the bubble boy.

It happened in a blind versus blind confrontation with Jason DeWitt. Negreanu was in the big blind and called DeWitt's raise to 20,000 to see the flop come down {3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Spades}. DeWitt continuation bet 20,000, Negreanu raised to 60,000, and DeWitt made the call. When the {9-Hearts} hit the turn, DeWitt led out with a big bet and Negreanu called off for 74,000.

Negreanu: {K-Spades}{3-Spades}
DeWitt: {A-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

Negreanu had flopped big with bottom pair and a flush draw, but he was still behind DeWitt's pair of fours. Unfortunately for Negreanu fans, the {9-Diamonds} river blanked and he was eliminated in 28th place. The good news, at least for the remaining players, is that they're now in the money.
