Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu is playing both this event and Event #10: €25,500 Mixed Games Championship, where he is already in the final table. Obviously, Event #10 is more important than this one, but currently is on break so he picked up the opportunity and came to play some hands.

He had just 23,000 left and after a couple of hands he folded, he was in the big blind. Marc Palatzky raised to 20,000 from early position and Negreanu defended his big blind. On a {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades} he put the 3,000 he had left in the middle and Palatzky called.

Daniel Negreanu: {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Marc Palatzky: {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Spades}

Turn and river came {9-Hearts} and {9-Spades} respectively, with Negreanu doubling stackk. After that, the break ended on the final table and he left his seat again.
