WSOP Tournament of Champions

Chan Knocks Negreanu Down a Peg

Johnny Chan

Johnny Chan raised to 6,000 on the button, and Daniel Negreanu bumped it up to 20,000 from the small blind. Barry Greenstein quickly folded his big blind, and Chan called the extra 14,000.

Flop: {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} - Negreanu checked, and Chan checked behind.

Turn: {q-Diamonds} - Negreanu checked again, this time, Chan fired 30,000. Negreanu checked his cards again and made the call.

River: {2-Hearts} - Negreanu checked a third street. Chan grabbed a handful of pink chips and tossed them in for a bet of 60,000. Negreanu spent a few minutes talking through the hand. He said it was silly since Chan probably had spades, but he convinced himself to fold. Negreanu dropped to 160,000 while Chan chipped up to 200,000, taking over the chip lead.
