Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Negreanu Exits Early

• Level 5: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Daniel Negreanu has been eliminated by Alexander Kostritsyn here in the fifth level. Kid Poker actually took the first 25,000-chip bite out of the match, but Kostritsyn battled from behind to take control. Once Negreanu had to dip into his own add-on chips, the match didn't last very long at all. On the last hand, Negreanu's {A-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} fell to Kostritsyn's pocket kings, and it's Russia over Canada in this match.
