[user68268] • Level 16: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante
Paul Newey doubles up

Hand #39: Daniel Negreanu raised to 450,000 from early position. Paul Newey called from the small blind, and Tobias Reinkemeier called out of the big blind.

The flop was {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, and Newey and Reinkemeier checked to Negreanu. He bet 600,000, and Newey folded. Reinkemeier called, though, and the turn was the {3-Hearts}. Reinkemeier checked, and Negreanu quickly checked behind.

The river was the {4-Hearts}, and both players checked. Reinkemeier showed {A-}{Q-}, and Negreanu mucked.

Hand #40: Phil Galfond raised from early position and won the pot.

Hand #41: Galfond opened to 425,000 from under the gun, and play moved over to Paul Newey in the cutoff seat. He studied for a few moments, then called, and Daniel Negreanu also came along from the big blind. The flop came down {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and Negreanu and Galfond checked. Newey bet 1.05 million, and Negreanu folded. Galfond, on the other hand, had other plans for this one.

Galfond took his time before raising to 2.315 million. Newey fought back with an all-in shove, and Galfond called with the {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. Newey had the {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for the best hand at the time.

The turn was the {10-Diamonds}, and then the river was the {K-Hearts}. Newey finished with aces and kings and doubled to 10.1 million. He was all in on the flop for 4.265 million.
