Hand #1:

Daniel Negreanu raised from the under-the-gun position, and action folded to the player in the small blind, who called. The flop came {5-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Spades}, and the player in the small blind check-called a bet from Negreanu. The turn was the {K-Hearts} on which they both checked. The {10-Hearts} on the river completed the board. Now, his opponent bet and Negreanu took some time to think.

"What do you have? What did you do?" Negreanu asked. "Check-called on the flop, checked the turn, bet the river? The ten of hearts doesn't connect to anything on the flop. You must be bluffing. I'm too curious; I call."

His opponent showed {Q-}{10-} for the rivered pair of tens. Negreanu showed {A-}{Q-}, and his opponent took the pot.

Hand #2:

The player in the under-the-gun position raised, and Negreanu called in the big blind. The flop came {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Negreanu checked, his opponent bet, and Negreanu raised. His opponent re-raised, actually putting Negreanu all in, and Negreanu called.

"I have quads," Negreanu said. He opened his hand and showed {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. "Oh, I thought that was a five," he joked.

His opponent showed {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}, and Negreanu needed some help to stay alive.

The turn brought the blank {8-Hearts}, but the river gave Negreanu the {6-Clubs} and one of the outs he needed to stay in the tournament.

Hand #3:

Yu Dong, in the hijack, raised. Negreanu three-bet in the small blind, and Dong called.

The flop came {2-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}. Negreanu bet, Dong raised, Negreanu three-bet, Dong four-bet, Negreanu five-bet, and Dong called.

Negreanu only had 200 chips left, and bet it before the {6-Spades} was even dealt on the turn. Dong called. Negreanu showed {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for a flush draw, and Dong showed {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for a pair of tens.

The river was a blank, and Dong knocked Negreanu out of the tournament.

Dong got up and asked Negreanu if he could take a photo with him. Negreanu agreed, and they took a selfie. Negreanu then took his own phone out of his pocket and started filming for his own vlog. He described who knocked him out and which hands lead him there, then filmed some more of the scenery of the Amazon Room while walking out.

Player of the Year Update

• Level 7: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Mike Leah has joined the field in today's event after busting the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better Championship. John Racener has been in the field for a little while, and James Obst was in the field at the start of the tournament earlier today. With Daniel Negreanu now, the four players make up numbers three through six in the WSOP Player of the Year race.

The top two players, Ray Henson and Ryan Hughes, are both still in the PLO/8 Championship and are about seven places out of the money in that event. Hughes and Henson have a shot at extending their lead, and you can track their runs by following that event here.

The players in this event are all going to do their best to maintain their positions and hopefully not lose too much ground to the front runners.
