Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Negreanu Bests Brikis

Josh Brikis raised to 525 from early position and was called by Daniel Negreanu in the cutoff. The flop came {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Brikis bet 650 which Negreanu called. The turn was the {2-Hearts} and when Brikis checked, Negreanu tossed out a bet of 1,325. Brikis then raised to 3,100 and Negreanu thought for a bit before declaring he was all in. Brikis decided to fold and Negreanu flipped over the {j-Hearts} but not his other card.

The table all agreed that Negreanu must have had the ace of hearts to go with his jack and although it was never shown, Negreanu did verbally admit to also having the ace of hearts.
