Valderrama Cracks Negreanu's Aces to Take Huge Chip Lead

AnthonyThompson
Daniel Negreanu

With blinds at 60,000/120,000/15,000, Louie "pongpong" Valderrama opened for 480,000 from the cutoff and was called by Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu from the big blind while Brian "tsarrast" Rast was all in for 137,331 from the small blind.

Once the {k-Spades}{6-Spades}{10-Diamonds} flop appeared, Negreanu led out for 360,000 and then three-bet jammed for 3,890,600 after Valderrama raised to 1,328,665.

Valderrama called and all three players tabled their hands.

Brian "tsarrast" Rast: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Louie "pongpong" Valderrama: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Valderrama was ahead after flopping a set of sixes and the {4-Diamonds} turn left Negreanu drawing to the case ace.

Unfortunately for Negreanu, the {9-Hearts} appeared on the river ending his tournament.
