Daniel Negreanu

In a limped pot that checked through on the {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop, Phil Hellmuth bet 700,000 on the {2-Diamonds} turn and Daniel Negreanu raised all-in for 2,850,000. Hellmuth tanked for two minutes and called.

Phil Hellmuth: {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Daniel Negreanu: {k-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

Hellmuth had a straight while Negreanu held two pair. Negreanu needed to fill up on the river but didn't do so as the {4-Clubs} peeled off, and Negreanu hit the rail after more than three hours of three-handed play.

Many poker fans were rooting for a heads-up match between Negreanu and Hellmuth, but it will not happen as Hellmuth and Jeremy Ausmus are the last two players standing.
