Negreanu's Stack Getting Short

MikePatrick • Level 23

Daniel Negreanu was just on the wrong end of a huge four-way pot.

The action began after a player in early position limped. The cutoff raised and was called by Dana Kellstrom in the small blind, Negreanu in the big blind, and the early position opener as well.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}, and the players checked to the player in the cutoff, who bet. Everyone else called, and the turn brought the {k-Clubs}. The cutoff bet his last 29,000 which was called by Kellstrom, Negreanu, and the early position player.

Before the dealer put out the river card, Negreanu said "I bet everyone's thinking of a card".

Obviously, the {9-Spades} wasn't what Negreanu had in mind, because after Kellstrom bet his last 3,000 from the small blind, Negreanu folded, and the early position player called.

Once the cards were all tabled, Kellstrom's {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds} was good enough to scoop the pot with two pair, kings and nines, while the cutoff player was eliminated.
