WSOP Tournament of Champions

Brunson Running Hot

Only a few minutes ago, Daniel Negreanu and Doyle Brunson were discussing the hot run of cards Doyle caught during this week's episodes of the "Big Game."

"I checked. You had pocket queens NINE TIMES!" Negreanu said.

The two just tangled in their first hand together, Brunson opening for 300 and Negreanu making the call from the big blind. The flop was {9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Negreanu check-called Brunson's 600 bet. The turn came the {10-Spades} and Negreanu checked again. Brunson bet 1,500 and Negreanu folded. Brunson showed pocket kings.

"It's easy to read you, you just always have kings!" Negreanu laughed as Brunson stacked up the pot.
