Negreanu Over Nishikawa

• Level 19

Limit Hold'em

Kiyokazu Nishikawa opened from the button and Daniel Negreanu called out of the big blind. The two saw {4-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} hit the felt and Negreanu checked to the raiser. Nishikawa continued out and Negreanu came over the top with a check-raise. Nishikawa called and the {A-Clubs} hit the turn. Negreanu slowed with a check and Nishikawa fired out a bet. Negreanu tossed forward a call.

The {A-Diamonds} paired the board on the river and Negreanu check-called one more time. Nishikawa showed {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for king-high and Negreanu tabled a winning {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds} for aces and jacks. Negreanu took down the pot and now has 148,000 in chips.

Andrei Kaigorodtcev opened under the gun to 6,000 and found a call from Dan Heimiller in the big blind. The flop fell {9-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Spades} and Kaigorodtcev moved all in for his last roughly 8,000. Heimiller called and held {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for bottom set.

Kaigorodtcev collected $5,721 in 16th place prize money. Heimiller, on the other hand, has about 165,000 in chips.
