Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu made it 600,000 from the button before Jeremy Ausmus three-bet to 2,040,000 in he small blind. Phil Hellmuth folded his big blind and Negreanu called.

The flop came {9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Ausmus jammed on Negreanu, who called for his last 2,300,000.

Daniel Negreanu: {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Jeremy Ausmus: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

Negreanu was ahead with his pair of sevens and needed to avoid an ace or a king to double up. The {6-Spades} fell on the turn, followed by the {j-Clubs} on the river which improved Negreanu to two pair.
