Daniel Negreanu during the Big One for One Drop

On the fourth hand of the day Daniel Negreanu just raked in a huge pot to put himself at the top of the chip counts.

Negreanu, seated at the secondary featured table, raised to 300 from the small blind and the player on his left three-bet to 800.

"Reraise?" Negreanu said with a smile before making the call.

The flop brought out {8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{J-Spades} and Negreanu checked to his opponent who bet 800. The Canadian pro check-raised to 2,800 and the player in the big blind made the call.

The turn was the {J-Hearts} and Negreanu bet another 3,500, which was quickly called. On the river the {6-Spades} popped up and Negreanu casually tossed out two orange chips worth 10,000 total.

After quite a bit of tanking his opponent called, only to see that Negreanu had {J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for a full house.

"I won two of the first three hands as well," Negreanu cheerfully added. "I had ace-king suited and nines."
