Here's a Fun One

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu and two other players put in 7,175 each pre-draw in a reraised pot. The first player opted to draw one, Negreanu stood pat, and then the third player also stood pat. After the draw, the first player checked, Negreanu fired 15,600, and the third player went into the tank.

After tanking for a couple of long minutes, the player asked, "What should I do, Daniel?"

"It's a three-way pot, so I can't say," responded Negreanu with a laugh.

"Heck, I know what you have and I'm trying to figure out what I would do," commented Layne Flack from next to the player in the tank.

"I'd tell you, but I don't want to get thrown out of this thing," added Negreanu.

"I want you to get thrown out," said Flack.

After another minute or two, the player folded his hand. The other player in the hand — after patiently waiting, we might add — also mucked, and Negreanu almost jumped out of his seat.

""You want to see a fun hand! Look at this one!" he yelled, before tabling {Q-}{9-}{7-}{7-}{4-}. "I told myself, 'Fuck it, I'm just gonna win this pot!'"

Negreanu scooped the pot while the table got a good laugh and moved to 44,000.

"You have an eight-six?" asked Flack to the player who tanked.

"No, a ninety-eight," the player responded.

"Wow," finished Flack.
