"I trapped him!" Daniel Negreanu just said with a big smile, as we ran into him leaving the tournament room.
The quote suggested a good result, but the truth was far from that as Negreanu busting the EPT Grand Final in record speed after entering the tournament after the dinner break.
Negreanu told us what happened in the hand that went as following.
Negreanu raised under the gun holding ace-king to 1,175 and the man he just told to speed things up - Markku Koplimaa - three-bet to 3,450 from the small blind. Negreanu made the call, and the flop brought out with two spades.
Koplimaa bet 3,600 on the flop and Negreanu called, and a hit on the turn. Negreanu called another 7,000 chips and the board completed on the river with a , and Koplimaa put Negreanu all in.
"I called for 17,000, and he had six-eight of diamonds," Negreanu cackled.
Negreanu was knocked out by the straight of his opponent, and Koplimaa now sits on 200,000.
