Negreanu: (x)(x) / {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} / (x)
Opponent: (x)(x) / {a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Spades} / (x)

Daniel Negreanu may have joined the tournament two hours late, but he is already making his presence felt, as he has nearly doubled his starting stack in under an hour. Negreanu got a good portion of those chips on this hand, where he called bets on fourth and fifth street. When Negreanu paired up on sixth street, he bet, only to get raised by his opponent. Both players checked the river, and Negreanu showed {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{q-} for two pair, while his opponent showed {a-Spades}{5-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for aces and a missed flush and straight draw. Negreanu now has 8900.
