Daniel Negreanu Eliminated in 13th Place ($19,272)

Daniel Negreanu - 13th Place

The action folded to Andy Bloch, who moved all in for around 50,000. Bob Bright surrendered his small blind, and Daniel Negreanu, who had previously sunk to 31,500, went into the tank. He said that he wanted to call, but he was going to draw too many cards.

He eventually did call, and drew two. Bloch drew one.

Negreanu: {7-}{6-}{2-}
Bloch: {9-}{8-}{7-}{4-}

Negreanu agreed to flip one of his cards, then Bloch would look at his.

"Paint," Negreanu announced, turning over a queen.

Bloch flipped over a king, and Negreanu was still drawing live. He squeezed the card.

"Paint," he said again.

He sighed.

"Queen," he announced. "Effing queens."

He then said that every time he's had a massage this series he's busted, and John Juanda joked that it was the masseuse's fault.

"Let me put my pants back on," Negreanu said, standing up.

His pants weren't off per say, but he had to re-buckle them so they wouldn't fall down. Negreanu then exited, quite unhappy with his finish.

Danzer Back Over 400K


Just before Level 18 began, George Danzer raised to 15,000 from the small blind, and John Juanda called. Both players drew one, and Danzer led out for 26,000. Juanda tank-called, and Danzer fanned a ninety-six.

Juanda mucked, and Danzer pulled in the pot to jump back over 400K.

Negreanu's Wizardry Continues

Daniel Negreanu has been known for being able to call out people's hands as cited in this video and this one as well.

We just witnessed an example of this man's wizardry first hand. Actually, let's not even call him a man. At this point it's safe to assume that Daniel Negreanu is simply a supernatural being.

Action folded around to Bob Bright's small blind and Bright announced a fold. Daniel Negreanu then proceeded to call out Bright's five card hand with Bright turning the cards up as Negreanu said them.

"King," said Negreanu. Bright flipped up a {K-}.

"Queen," continued Negreanu. Bright proceeded to turn over a {Q-}.

"Jack," said Negreanu. Once again Bright turned over the corresponding card, a {J-}.

Okay, perhaps those three were easy. Two more to go.

"Nine," Negreanu said. Bright did not disappoint as he showed a {9-}.

And the big finale: "Four."

Bright tabled a {4-} and the table as well as the rail went nuts. Negreanu simply has the ability to call out cards in situations like this and this is yet another insane example of his amazing natural instincts.

Negreanu Crippled


Daniel Negreanu made it 14,500 from the button and George Danzer called from the small blind. John Juanda mucked from the big blind and the two players were heads up to the draw.


Danzer fired out 28,000 only to have Negreanu make it 73,000 to go. Danzer quickly called.

"You've got it," said Negreanu. Dazner fanned an eighty-seven, showing {8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{2-}.

Negreanu showed {2-}{2-}{2-}{7-}.

"Had your blockers," said Negreanu. "Ugh. That was the first bluff of the tournament! I'm 0 for one on bluffs!"

"And I don't think he's going to quit at one," Juanda added. The table all laughed and despite the laughter, Negreanu's stack is looking suddenly bleak at only 66,000.

Wattel Doubles Through Mercier


Nick Schulman raised to 15,500 in middle position, Jason Mercier called on the button, and Ali Eslami called out of the small blind. Mike Wattel squeezed, moving all in for 148,000 from the big blind, and only Mercier called.


Wattel fanned {8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{2-} for a rough eight, and Mercier tabled {8-}{6-}{5-}{2-}. Any seven, four, or three would give him the best hand, but he was dealt a ten.

Wattel more than doubled to 345,000, while Mercier slipped to 62,000.

Marco Traniello moved all in for his last 16,000 from under the gun, and Andy Bloch called him from the big blind.

Bloch stood pat with a {j-}{10-}{9-}{6-}{3-}, and Traniello drew one, showing {10-}{8-}{6-}{3-}. Unfortunately for him, he drew a ten, making a pair, and eliminating him in fourteenth place.

Can't Break a Nine-Eight


Benjamin Parker raised to 14,000 from under the gun, Bob Bright called in the cutoff, and George Danzer three-bet to 83,000 from the big blind. Parker tanked, then announced all in.

"That's easy for me," Bright announced, folding.

Danzer asked for a count, then went into the tank. He eventually mucked, and Parker pulled in the pot.

"How did you know I had a nine-eight and couldn't break it," Danzer asked Parker, who didn't answered.

"He might've just called then," Andy Bloch added.

Bright "Min-Bets"

[user101598] • Ниво 17: 3,000-6,000, 1,500 ante

George Danzer opened from under the gun, and the action folded to Bob Bright, who called out of the small blind. Both players drew one, and Bright tossed out 12,000.

"Min-bet," he announced after the chips hit the felt.

John Juanda and Andy Bloch looked at him quizzically, then informed him that it wasn't a min-bet - 6,000 was.

"I made my hand," Danzer told Bright.

"You made your hand?" Bright answered. "Then call."

"I'll let you bluff this time," Danzer said, then folded.

Bright Doubles Through Bloch


Action folded to Andy Bloch in the button who moved all in. Bob Bright called off his stack from less from the big blind and both players drew one card.


Bright was the first to table his card and showed a {J-}, giving him a jack-nine low. Bloch flipped his over without a squeeze and showed another {10-}, giving him a pair and the worst hand. Bright dragged in the pot and was able to double up while crippling Bloch.
