Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Negreanu Doubles Through Pellegrino

Daniel Negreanu

From middle position, Bryan Pellegrino raised to 23,000 and action folded over to Daniel Negreanu in the cutoff, who re-raised to 63,000. When it got back to Pellegrino, he announced a pot-sized raise and Negreanu quickly went all in for 146,000. Pellegrino called.

Pellegrino: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}
Negreanu: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}

"Sorry," announced Pellegrino.

"It's not over yet," Negreanu replied.

Indeed it wasn't.

The board ran out {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and a non-nonchalant Negreanu said, "I spiked a king, didn't I?"

Yes, and Negreanu scooped the pot with kings-full.
