€100,000 Super High Roller

That Guy Cates

• Taso 10: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Daniel Cates

Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu opened for 19,000 from early position and got called from the cutoff by Dan Smith. Dan Cates on the button had other ideas and bumped up the price of poker to 75,000.

The blinds folded and Negreanu said, “I hate folding.” and tossed in the call. Smith looked like he was contemplating something but one last look at his cards saw them heading towards the dealer. “I thought you were gonna re-raise bro.” said Negreanu and two remaining players saw a flop of:


“Check to that guy.” Negreanu said, and that guy Cates bet 65,000.

Negreanu folded saying it was a terrible flop for his hand, claiming to have had {9-}{9-}. Cates said he didn’t believe him which got a chuckle out of Negreanu.
