No-Limit Hold'em

Daniel Negreanu limped in from the small blind and Kevin Malis raised to 50,000 from the big blind.

Negreanu called, and then checked the {4-Hearts}{5-Spades}{K-Diamonds} flop to Malis who bet 40,000. Negreanu called, and checked the {A-Clubs} on the turn.

Malis bet out 130,000 and Negreanu called as the {10-Clubs} completed the board on the river.

Negreanu checked, and Malis moved all in for 880,000.

"What a turn card! This is so ridiculous!" announced Negreanu as he contemplated a decision for his tournament life.

As Negreanu remained in the tank, he added, "Just thirty more seconds"

Negreanu then plonked a stack of chips into the pot to signify an all-in call for 438,000, and Malis tabled his {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for a set.

Negreanu tabled his {K-Spades}{4-Spades} for two-pair, and he would be eliminated in third place for a $59,788 payday.

Negreanu Calls Heads and Doubles

No-Limit Hold'em

Kevin Malis raised the button to 35,000 and Daniel Negreanu moved all in from the big blind for 331,000. Malis instantly called, and the cards were tabled.

Malis: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Negreanu: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}

It was a classic coin flip situation for Negreanu, and when the dealer spread a {6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop, Negreanu's chances of continuing in the tournament would dip.

Fortunately for the six-time WSOP bracelet winner, the dealer revealed the {K-Clubs} on the turn, followed by the {A-Hearts} on the river to ensure his double to 682,000.
