On one of the first hands of the day Greg Merson raised to 50,000 and Dani Stern called from the button. Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negrenau was seated in the big blind and he three-bet to 145,000.
Merson did not take long before moving all in and Stern folded immediately. Negreanu snap-called and a huge cooler was upon us.
"I don't think I could've played that any differently," Negreanu said with a smile as he found out in how much trouble he was.
The board ran out and Negreanu was knocked out in 14th place.
"I took some notes from you yesterday," Merson said with a smile to Ole Schemion who is sitting on his right.
"What?" Schemion responded, not understanding what Merson meant.
"Just cooler people," Merson said and Schemion started laughing.
Merson is now the tournament chip leader with just 13 players remaining.
