Negreanu Doubles Up in the First Hand

Webjoker • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

In the first hand of the day, action folded to Daniel Negreanu in the cutoff. The PokerStars Team Pro shoved his last 51,000 in and started a monologue about charts and whatnot while awaiting his fate. His neighbor Timothy Adams was interested and called, both blinds folded.

"I just have ace-jack" said Negreanu. "That's good" Adams replied as he showed his {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. "Yeah it is!" Negreanu laughingly said while showing his {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}, "I sucked you in!"

The flop came {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Negreanu was all smiles. "Yeah baby! I saved a $100k by not shipping it in last night!" The {9-Spades} on the turn and {K-Diamonds} on the river made things official and Negreanu doubled up.

Timothy Adams ca 291,000 -51,000
Daniel Negreanu ca 114,500 62,500
