Feature Table Hands #34-37: Galfond Gets In There

[user68268] • Level 15: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Hand #34: Action folded to Daniel Negreanu in the small blind, and he called. Phil Galfond checked in the big blind, and the flop came down {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Both players checked. They also checked the {10-Clubs} turn and {2-Clubs} river. Galfond showed the {Q-Spades}{7-Hearts} and won the pot.

Hand #35: Action folded to Negreanu on the button, and he raised to 380,000. Phil Galfond three-bet to 880,000 from the small blind and won the pot.

Hand #36: Antonio Esfandiari raised from the hijack seat to 365,000. After Daniel Negreanu called from the cutoff seat, Phil Galfond reraised to 950,000 on the button, the blinds folded, and action fell back on Esfandiari. After pausing for a few moments to think, the man they call "The Magician" and the defending champion of this event reraised to 2.305 million. Negreanu folded, and Galfond reraised all in (7.38 million).

Esfandiari requested a count as he leaned forward in his seat over the table. He then leaned back, put his two hands behind his head and stretched out, before returning to looking at his stack and back at his cards. He then folded, and Galfond won the pot.

Hand #37: Negreanu raised to 360,000 from the hijack seat. Paul Newey called out of the big blind, and the flop came down {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Both players checked, and the turn was the {3-Spades}. Newey bet 400,000, and Negreanu raised to 900,000. Newey folded, and Negreanu won the pot.
