Negreanu Joins the Grand Final, And Faces a Tanker

[user20283] • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante

After a rant about how the Toronto Raptors will get crushed tonight versus the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of the first round of the NBA playoffs, Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu shifted his focus to the poker action.

Negreanu folded the first hand of his EPT Grand Final - the tournament he almost won in 2013, finishing fourth for €321,000 - and another player raised to 1,100. After a third player made the call, the action was on Markku Koplimaa.

Koplimaa tanked quite some time before Negreanu chimed in.

"What are you thinking about?" Negreanu said, "You for sure know what you're going to do at this point."

"Tick-tock, the clock don't stop!" Negreanu added, before Koplimaa finally three-bet.

Both Koplimaa's opponent quickly folded, and the Estonian added some more to his big stack.

Seemingly unfazed Koplimaa said with a smile, "I like playing with you, you're funny."
