Event 8 - $1,000 No Limit Holdem w/ rebuys

Negreanu is Gone

A player on the button, Chuck Kelley, bumps it to 4,000. Negreanu calls in the big blind. The flop is {9-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Negreanu checks and the other player makes it 13,000. Negreanu check-raises all in for 22,500 and the opponent calls.

"Fishy," Negreanu says. "I smell you got no pair."

Indeed, Kelley has {5-Clubs}{7-Clubs}, but it's good enough against {2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for Negreanu when the board finishes out {8-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. Kelley gets the straight and Negreanu is gone. Kelley is up to 112,000.
