James Dempsey opened to 2,000 from middle position, Daniel Negreanu called in the hijack, and a third player re-raised to 8,500 from the small blind. Only Negreanu called.

The flop fell {8-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}, and Negreanu's opponent led for what looked like 7,700. Negreanu called.

The turn was the {8-Spades}, and Negreanu's opponent slowed down, check-calling 13,500 from Kid Poker. The {10-Clubs} completed the board, and the player checked again. Negreanu fired 34,500, and his opponent tank-called, tabling {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. Negreanu showed {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for trip eights, and shipped the pot.

The very next hand, Negreanu opened to 2,200, a player in the cutoff called, and the dealer fanned {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{6-Spades}. Negreanu led out for 2,800, and the player called. Both players checked on the turn ({k-Hearts}) and the river ({k-Diamonds}), and Negreanu showed {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. His opponent had {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for kings full of sixes, and won the pot.

The next hand, Negreanu opened to 2,200 from middle position, and a player three-bet jammed for 14,800. Negreanu folded {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs} face up, and the player showed the {4-Clubs}.
