Daniel Negreanu Eliminated in Second Place ($1,000,000)


Daniel Negreanu had the button and the Team PokerStars Pro raised to 160,000. Eugene Katchalov moved all in to put the pressure on the shorter-stacked Negreanu. Once Katchalov shoved, Negreanu sat back in his chair and began chatting to himself. He was playing it up for the cameras a bit and even flipped an imaginary coin in the air before saying, “Oh, what am I doing, I call.” The cards were on their backs.

Negreanu: {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Katchalov: {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Negreanu had the best of it with fives and was in really good shape to double up and get right back int his thing. First up was the flop.

The flop came down {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}{8-Spades}. Negreanu held the only spade and still had the lead in the hand. The turn brought the {4-Spades} and just like that, Katchalov took the lead by spiking a set of fours. Negreanu was quick to hush the crowd and point out the fact that he still had a flush draw.

The river card completed the board with the {2-Clubs} and although it was black, it was a club. Katchalov won the hand and won the tournament. The two shook hands and congratulated one another. Negreanu walked away with a cool $1 million for second place.
