Negreanu vs. Chen

From the button, Daniel Negreanu raised to 25,000. Tommy Chen called from the big blind, and the flop came down {A-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Both players checked, and the turn was the {2-Spades}. Both players checked again, and the {10-Hearts} landed on the river. Chen led for 31,000.

"Ahh haaa!" Negreanu exclaimed as he pointed to the river card and looked at the rail, insinuating that Chen hit the river card.

After some chatter, Negreanu folded.

"Pick one," said Chen.

Negreanu grabbed one and turned over the {8-Clubs}.

A couple of hands later, Negreanu raised to 25,000 on the button, and Chen called from the big blind to take the {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} flop. Chen checked, Negreanu bet 31,000, and Chen called. The turn was the {9-Clubs}, and Chen checked. Negreanu bet 55,000 and Chen folded.

On the next hand after that, Chen raised from the button to 31,000, and Negreanu three-bet to 76,000 from the big blind. Chen folded.
