  1. Praz Bansi Eliminated in 3rd Place (£360,887)Praz Bansi shoved from the button and Daniel Negreanu called from the small blind. Simple as that.It wasn't looking good for our short stack.Bansi: {Q-Hearts} {2-Hearts}Negreanu: {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds}Rail: "DOOOOOOOOOCE!!!"Flop: {4-Diamonds} {8-Spades} {4-Clubs}Rail: "Oof"Turn: {J-Spades}Rail: "Ooh"River: {6-Diamonds}A quick "Awww" from the crowd soon turned into a standing ovation as we lost Mr. Bansi in third place. He returned to the table to hand his few remaining stacks of chips over to Negreanu, and with his exit, we are heads up.
  2. Like Godzilla v Rodan, The Chip Giants Go To War; Negreanu VictoriousThe big chip stacks aren't afraid to play each other at this point, and this hand which tilted the lead firmly back to Negreanu is a case in point.Praz Bansi limped on the small blind, then called bb Negreanu's raise to 150k.On the {A-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {3-Spades} flop Bansi check-called a bet from Negreanu.The turn: {A-Spades} Now Bansi checked, but then raised when Negreanu bet 180k to 450k. After a brief think, Negreanu made the call.The river: {Q-Clubs} Bansi had a look over at Negreanu's stack, down at this point to th

  4. Going Crazy with the LadiesJason Mercier raised under the gun, and Praz Bansi reraised from the button. The next logical step -- Daniel Negreanu four-bet out of the small blind. But there the chain was interrupted -- Negreanu's four-bet had been all in and Shulman swiftly passed. Mercier and Bansi passed too, and Negreanu showed them pocket queens.He's back in the lead, and the stacks seem to be unevening themselves a little..
  5. 90 minute dinner break perfect timing to go watch the celtic football(soccer) game. come on vienna
  6. Markus Ristola Eliminated in 5th Place (£200,367)Daniel Negreanu opened for 100,000 under the gun and everyone folded, except for Markus Ristola who went all in from the big blind. Some gentle dwelling from Negreanu...And a call! Again! What's going on here? Monsieur Negreanu, weeth all thees action you are spoiling us!Ristola: {K-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}Negreanu: a rather surprising call with {A-Clubs} {5-Clubs}Flop: {8-Hearts} {Q-Spades} {6-Spades}Turn: {K-Spades} to put Ristola in a fine position to double up. "Ace!" requested a pro-Negreanu railer feebly.Duly, river: {A-Hearts}ROAAAAARRRRR!
  7. its still only 7.30pm uk time so could have a long sweat ahead
  8. it was after the J high flop that the snap call was made
  9. Mercier Beginning to Look Just Slightly FlusteredDaniel Negreanu opened for 100,000 and Barry Shulman called from the small blind. Over to Jason Mercier in the big blind, and he reraised to 395,000. Negreanu called, Shulman passed, and they saw a flop.The flop came down {2-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} and Mercier checked. Negreanu bet 350,000, and Mercier passed. Negreanu showed him the {10-Diamonds} for his efforts.
  10. Praz Bansi All In Again....Negreanu's Called...And you know what that's tended to mean on this final table! Tension so thick you could almost see it like heat shimmer was surrounding Bansi as he tortured himself over a threeway {6-Diamonds} {4-Spades} {J-Clubs} flop. Negreanu had bet and he was counting down his stack, in between shaking his head like he had something horrible stuck to it. This thinking period amounted to about five minutes, but ended with his suddenly pushing his stack in, and Negreanu snapcalling. There was some shrugging, and reluctance on both sides to show, but eventually
  11. Chris Bjorin Eliminated in 6th Place (£150,267)This has really been the level to consolidate the many's chips in the hands of the few. And just now Daniel Negreanu picked up Chris Bjorin's stack after an all-in-preflop call.Negreanu's {A-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs} was comfortably pipping Bjorin's {A-Spades} {J-Hearts} .Bjorin stood up as the flop came down an audience-pleasing, but not really state-changing {10-Spades} {9-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} ...the turn was the {3-Clubs} and the river the {9-Clubs} so we've lost yet another player to the voracious Level 25!
  12. thanks flintthere must be a stream somewhere then with that it has commentators and all?
  13. Antoine Saout Eliminated in 7th Place (£114,228)The very next hand, Antoine Saout shoved to a raise from Daniel Negreanu. Negreanu made the call, and they were racing for the Frenchman's tournament life.Saout: {5-Clubs} {5-Diamonds}Negreanu: {A-Spades} {Q-Spades}I don't believe we've seen Mr. Saout look so awake this whole tournament.Board: {8-Spades} {10-Spades} {4-Clubs} {2-Diamonds} {7-Spades}Proving that, in spite of all TD Jack Effel's earlier attempts to get the rail to make some noise, nothing gets a crowd worked up like some good old-fashioned gambling action, a chorus of, "Ooh!" accom

  15. i think its the same total.i got a question WHEN daniel wins will he be regarded as the best ever until ivey wins in vegas?
  16. Negreanu's Ball Not So SmallChris Bjorin makes a raise to 110k preflop on the button. Small blind Daniel Negreanu uses two hands to push forward enough chips to signify a setting-him-all-in... and reluctantly, it looks like, Bjorin folds.
  17. Career as Children's Entertainer Beckons, Should the Poker Lark Start to Fail NegreanuBarry Shulman and Daniel Negreanu made it as far as the river of the {10-Hearts} {K-Diamonds} {J-Clubs} {10-Spades} {4-Hearts} board when Negreanu took the pot down with a bet that Shulman couldn't call. Negreanu pushed his hole cards around on the felt, mixing them up. "Pick a card," he said, "Any card." Shulman pointed to the one on the right -- and Negreanu flipped the {K-Spades}.woo hoo 100th post lol
  18. lets hope either daniel picks up a monster while the short stacks are pushing or goes card dead lol
  19. akenhead and saout and demidov all making both tables impressive daniel is one of the few players who would keep his tourney alive with QQ vs AA against a loose aggressive not to mention chip leaderdare i ask if it is in daniel's destiny to win????
  20. Big Pot (Actually, This Time)!A lot of Daniel Negreanu's hard work building his stack up to the second place level has been undone just now with a big confrontation vs. Jason Mercier. The million+ pot started out as a standard sort of hand, with Negreanu calling Mercier pre and then both players checking the {4-Spades} {9-Clubs} {7-Diamonds} flop. So far, so standard for the last four hours.The {K-Spades} turn saw another check from Negreanu, and a bet of 220k from Mercier. Negreanu made the call.The river was the {9-Hearts} , and now a third check from Negreanu saw a bet of 383k from Mercier.
