A big pot just took place between two of the world's most popular players in Daniel Negreanu and Patrik Antonius. It was a hand that would see one of them fall.
It began when the Team PokerStars Pro opened with a raise from middle position and the Finn called from the button. The blinds folded, the flop came down , and Negreanu continued for 15,000. Antonius called, the dealer burned and turned the , and Negreanu bet again, this time 27,000.
Antonius decided to push back with a raise to 105,000, and Negreanu made the call. "Kid Poker" then checked the river and Antonius moved all in for his last 191,000. Negreanu, who was getting a massage, shifted in his chair and began putting together some chips.
Eventually he shrugged and said, "I guess I'll call." Antonius rapped the table and Negreanu then tabled his for trips. "I'm really only beating a bluff," Negreanu added. Whether Antonius was bluffing or not remains a mystery as he mucked his hand. The only sure thing was that Negreanu had him beat and scored the knock out.
About a minute after Antonius busted, Australian Jeff Rossiter entered the field and took his seat at the table.
