Yamron Doubles Through Negreanu

• Level 18


Negreanu: {x-}{x-} / {6-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{10-Hearts} / {x-}
Yamron: {x-}{x-} / {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{K-Spades} / {x-}

Daniel Negreanu completed the action and it folded around to Bruce Yamron who made it two bets. Action came back to Negreanu and he called.

Yamon had first action on fourth street and fired out a bet. Negreanu called and the same action happened on fifth street. Yamron fired one last bet on sixth street and Negreanu raised him all in for an additional 1,500. Yamron called and the hands were turned over.

Yamron: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Negreanu: {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}

Negreanu's pair of queens were in the lead over Yamron's pair of tens heading to seventh street. Negreanu tabled his final card - the {2-Hearts} - and kept the lead with his queens. Yamron, however, flipped over the {K-Diamonds}, giving him two pair and the double. He now has about 55,000 while Negreanu has dropped down to 100,000.
