Phua Takes One Million-Chip Pot off of Negreanu


In one of the last hands of the previous level, Paul Phua opened to 15,000 from early position, and was called by Michael Mizrachi, Mike Sexton, Daniel Negreanu (button), Rick Salomon, and Chamath Palihapitiya. The dealer fanned {4-Hearts}{3-Spades}{8-Spades}, and the action checked to Phua, who fired 65,000. Mizrachi and Sexton both folded, and Negreanu raised to 200,000. Both blinds released, and Phua tank-called.

Both players checked after the {q-Spades} turned, and the {8-Diamonds} completed the board. Phua led for 300,000, and Negreanu thought for a bit, then called.

"Flush," Phua announced, tabling {k-Spades}{j-Spades}.

Negreanu mucked, and Phua raked in the pot.
