Negreanu Busts, Re-Enters

Daniel Negreanu
Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu open-shoved for his last 70,000 or so from early position, and the action folded to Olivier Busquet, who called out of the big blind.

Busquet turned over {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

"No good," Negreanu said showing the {k-Diamonds}...and the {q-Clubs}. "Straight draw!"

Negreanu took the lead when the flop fell {4-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, but Busquet had outs to eliminate him. The turn was the {j-Diamonds}, giving him extra outs, and the {a-Spades} spiked on the river to give him a winning pair of aces.

Negreanu was debating whether or not to re-enter tonight, then someone at the table suggested that he should in case he needed to fire a third bullet.

"That's right!" he shouted, then headed towards the nearest PokerStars employee.

Ship it to Vivek

Vanessa Selbst led out for 37,000 into a pot of around 100,000 on a flop of {k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. Vivek Rajkumar raised to what looked like 80,000, and Selbst moved all in for effectively 127,500. Rajkumar called.

Selbst: {j-Spades}{5-Spades}
Rajkumar: {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

"I'm so bad sometimes," Selbst said.

The turn and river came {3-Hearts}, {4-Spades}, and Rajkumar doubled.

Hellmuth Enters His First-Ever PCA Event

"Now that my kids are in college they don't want to see me anymore," was the first thing we heard Phil Hellmuth say when he took his seat in the tournament here in the last level of Day 1.

We're not sure the context of the comment, but we stayed long enough to watch his first hand. In it Hellmuth opened for 15,000 from early position and received a call from Philipp Gruissem in the cutoff. JC Alvarado then moved all in for 109,000 from the button, and action folded back to Hellmuth.

"You should have done that to me in Europe," Hellmuth said with a smile in reference to both his and Alvarado's deep run in the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event.

"I did," Alvarado replied. Hellmuth then folded his hand and Gruissem, who flashed the {A-Clubs}, followed suit.

Above the Rim

Also prior to the level change, Philipp Gruissem opened to 8,000 on the button. Jason Somerville defended his big blind, and the flop fell {8-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Clubs}. Somerville check-called what looked like 9,000, and the turn brought the {k-Diamonds}. Somerville checked again, Gruissem tossed out 25,000, and Somerville called.

The river was the {q-Diamonds}, and Somerville checked a third time. Gruissem fired 55,000, and Somerville called. Gruissem tabled {j-Spades}{8-Spades} for a pair of eights, and Somerville mucked claiming to have "ten-eight suited."

"Wow!" Bill Perkins exclaimed at the end of the hand. "You guys are playing so far above the rim!"

Durrrr Doubles

Tom Dwan doubles
Tom Dwan doubles

Just before the level change, Daniel Negreanu opened to 9,500 from early position, and Tom "durrrr" Dwan called in the big blind. The flop was {q-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, and Dwan checked. Negreanu continued for 10,000, Dwan raised to 25,000, and Negreanu moved all in for effectively 73,500. Dwan flipped over {j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}, signaling a call, but he didn't say anything.

Negreanu was confused, but then Dwan officially pushed his chips forward. Negreanu tabled {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for a flush draw.

The turn was the {9-Hearts}, giving Negreanu outs to chop, but the {5-Spades} bricked on the river. Dwan doubled to 166,000 chips, while Negreanu is left with just 82,000.
