Negreanu Tests Sontheimer

Level 8 : 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

The board fell {2-Hearts}{q-Spades}{6-Spades}{9-Spades}, and with around 25,000 in the middle, Daniel Negreanu bet 35,000 from the hijack.

Steffen Sontheimer had 16,000 behind in the cutoff and went into the tank.

Sontheimer and Negreanu were chatting away at this point with Sontheimer trying to work out a holding he was beating.

"I have the ace of spades," said Sontheimer and after a few more seconds passed he folded.

"Show me, please?" said Sontheimer.

"I'll show you one," said Negreanu and revealed the {7-Spades}.

"Pocket sevens," replied Sontheimer, and Negreanu revealed the {7-Hearts} before he took in the pot.
