Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu opened the action with a min-raise to 48,000, and it was folded to Nick Jivkov in the small blind. Jivkov raised it up to 112,000, and it was back to Negreanu, who wasted little time in moving the rest of his chips in. It was a total of 181,000, and Jivkov made the call. The cards were flipped, and Negreanu was in great shape.

Negreanu: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Jivkov: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

When the flop came down {10-Spades}{q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, Negreanu let out a mini yell of celebration, until he realized that Jivkov had picked up an open ended straight draw. "No king or eight or else we're dead" he yelled to his rail as the {2-Hearts} hit the turn. "No king or eight" Negreanu said one more time, but unfortunately for him, the dealer peeled off a {k-Clubs} on the river. Negreanu left with a smile on his face, as he takes home over $40,000 for his efforts. Meanwhile, Jivkov propels himself to the chip lead, sitting on 940,000.
