SantanaBandana
Mike Sexton calls Daniel Negreanu's bluff.

Mike Sexton opened to 80,000 from the cutoff, and Daniel Negreanu defended his big blind. The dealer fanned {7-Spades}{j-Hearts}{4-Spades}, Negreanu checked, and Sexton continued for 125,000. Negreanu called.

The turn was the {k-Hearts}, and Negreanu checked again. Sexton fired 250,000, and Negreanu called.

The river was the {3-Clubs}, and Negreanu checked one last time. Sexton bet 275,000, and Negreanu check-raised to 700,000.

"Wow," Sexton blurted.

The poker hall-of-famer went into the tank for the better part of two minutes before finally calling.

"You got it," Negreanu announced.

Sexton tabled {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}, Negreanu mucked, and Sexton scooped the pot.
