Daniel Negreanu

Brandon Adams opened to 75,000 from the cutoff, Daniel Negreanu called from the button and the flop came down {7-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Clubs}. Action checked to Negreanu who bet 60,000 and was quickly check-raised to 205,000 by Adams.

Negreanu made the call and a {3-Hearts} fell on the turn. Adams bet 405,000, Negreanu moved all in and Adams made the call, putting his opponent at risk. Negreanu turned over {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for an overpair of tens and Adams showed {q-Spades}{q-Clubs} for a better pair.

The dealer flipped over a {j-Clubs} on the river and that would seal the deal for Adams, who eliminated Negreanu and overtook the chip lead in the process of doing so.
