Negreanu Getting Run Over By the Orient Express

Johnny Chan has Daniel Negreanu's number. Despite being out of position, Chan has beaten Negreanu in every big pot they've played today, but Negreanu isn't giving up. This time, Chan raised to 8,000 from the cutoff, and Negreanu called on the button. The blinds folded, it was just them again fighting over a {5-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop. Chan bet out 15,000, and Negreanu raised it to 35,000. After all, it's the kind of flop you expect to have hit Negreanu. But Chan wasn't fooled for a second. He moved all in to put Daniel at risk, and Negreanu folded without much thought. Chan moved further into the lead with 265,000, and Negreanu slipped to 92,000.
