Negreanu Rising; Mizrachi Slipping


Daniel Negreanu has rushed his stack up to over 3.5 million in chips after taking two pots back to back. Here they are.

On the first hand, action folded to Negreanu in the cutoff seat and he raised to 18,000. Chamath Palihapitiya three-bet to 60,000 from the small blind and Negreanu made the call to see the flop.

The flop came down {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and Palihapitiya bet 55,000. Negreanu raised to 135,000 and Palihapitiya made the call to see the {K-Diamonds} land on the turn. Palihapitiya checked and Negreanu bet 210,000. Palihapitiya called.

On the {Q-Diamonds} river, Palihapitiya checked and Negreanu decided on a bet of 440,000. Palihapitiya quickly gave it up and Negreanu won the pot.

On the next hand, Robert Bright raised from early position to 18,000 and Negreanu reraised in the hijack seat to 60,000. Action folded to Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi in the big blind and he called. Bright folded.

The flop was {J-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades} and Mizrachi checked. Negreanu checked behind and the turn was the {Q-Clubs}. Mizrachi bet 125,000 and Negreanu made the call.

The river was the {3-Hearts} and Mizrachi fired 150,000. After some thinking out loud while in the tank, Negreanu made the call. Mizrachi simply tapped the table to signify Negreanu made a good call. Negreanu responded by showing the {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}. Mizrachi mucked his hand and the table congratulated Negreanu on making an excellent call.
