Daniel Negreanu

Hand #103: Daniel Negreanu raised to 100,000 with {9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Keith Tilston three-bet to 350,000 out of the small blind. That was enough to rake in the pot.

Hand #104: Tilston opened the button to 125,000 and big blind Negreanu shoved all-in for 1,020,000. Tilston reluctantly called.

Negreanu: {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Tilston: {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

"Alright, drawing live, I love it," Negreanu said after seeing his opponent's cards. He started joking about "old school woodoo", believing he would double up.

The board, however, ran {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs} to leave Negreanu drawing dead on the turn. He picked up $165,000 for his third place finish.

"Off to mixed games I go," Negreanu said, wishing good luck to the last two men standing.
