WSOP Tournament of Champions

More Check-Folding for Negreanu

Johnny Chan raised to 6,000 from the button, and Daniel Negreanu flatted in the small blind. Barry Greenstein folded his big blind, and they went heads up to a {8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop. The action proceeded exactly like the last time Negreanu was heads up from the small blind with Chan. Both players checked the flop. Negreanu checked again after the {q-Diamonds} turn, and Chan bet 12,000. Just like last time, Negreanu flatted. He checked once more when the {a-Hearts} fell on the river. Chan bet 25,000, and Negreanu muttered to himself before shrugging his shoulders and folding his hand. Negreanu started the level with 210,000, but he's down to 135,000 45 minutes later.
