Negreanu Keeps Doubling

Daniel Negreanu

Down to 19,000 when the 10-handed final table started, Daniel Negreanu was one foot out of the door but a streak of doubles saw him catapult his stack to 236,000.

The latest came when Mike Matusow raised to 60,000 in the first position. Negreanu was in the middle and said: "Mike Matusow raises under the gun? Then I'm all in."

Matusow called off with {A-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Negreanu was ahead with {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{7-Clubs}.

The flop, however, pushed the odds in Matusow's favor as the {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs} hit the felt. But the {9-Clubs} turn gave Negreanu a flush and Matusow couldn't finish with a boat to eliminate Negreanu. The {J-Hearts} river bricked his low draw as well and Negreanu scooped the whole pot.
