Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Smith Shoves, Negreanu Lets It Go

Shamus • Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Tyler Smith opened by raising to 2,700 from the cutoff and it folded to Daniel Negreanu in the small blind who made it 7,200 to go. The BB got out, and Smith made the call.

Both checked the {A-Hearts}{J-Spades}{K-Diamonds} flop. The turn was the {Q-Diamonds}, and Negreanu checked again. Smith took the opportunity to bet 10,300, and Negreanu called.

The river was the {2-Hearts}. Negreanu checked again, and Smith announced he was all in for the 61,000 or so he had left. Negreanu took his time contemplating what to do. He counted out his remaining chips, then leaned back and exhaled, shaking his head as he did. Finally he grabbed his cards, and waiting another few seconds, tossed them dealerward.

Negreanu preserves his stack of about 142,000. Meanwhile, Smith now has about 95,000.
