Daniel Negreanu Knocked Out Of 2010 WSOP Main Event

Daniel Negreanu Knocked Out Of 2010 WSOP Main EventWith play at the 2010 WSOP Main Event getting ever more aggressive, and all-in gambles occurring with greater frequency, Day 3 of the tournament saw the field of 2,557 players slashed to just 1,240 hopefuls.
Amongst an army of pros unable to survive the intense day of poker action yesterday, was the 2009 WSOP Europe Main Event finalists Daniel Negreanu. The Canadian pro with 4 WSOP bracelet to his credit had already cashed in at four event throughout the competition for a total pay-out of $132,533 but had his sights firmly set on taking down the biggest prize of them all.
However, starting off Day 3 as a short-stack Negreanu knew he had a lot of work to do if he was to give himself a reasonable shot of realising his goal.
Negreanu got involved in a big pot against a young Eric Carr on a board of A-Q-J-7-4, early on in play, and had a difficult decision to make when his opponent fired out a 11k bet into a 15k pot. Going through the hand, Negreanu rationalised out aloud his thinking process and said:
“So, why did you bet so much? Probably because you have a better hand than me. I think I’m going to have to fold … maybe you’re bluffing … no, you’re not bluffing; I fold.”
Carr then flipped over 6s-3s for a complete bluff, only to be congratulated by Negreanu for his “nice bet,” who then went back to trying to make the most of his increasingly shorter stack.
Just a few hours later, however, Negreanu got dealt a J-8 and must have fancied his chances of a double up after he found himself all-in on an A-J-8 flop. Two other players were still in the hand and after a K fell on the turn and one of the players folded to a big bet, Daniel inquired, “Did you hit your straight?”
His opponent turned over a Q-10 confirming Negreanu’s suspicions and with no help coming on the river, Negreanu had to bid good-bye to his WSOP Main Event dreams for another year.
Daniel Negreanu now joins a whole slew of other big name pros to be eliminated on Day 3 of the tournament, which included Joe Cada, Vanessa Rousso, Chris Ferguson, David Williams, Jennifer Harman, Chris Moneymaker, Erik Seidel, Phil Laak, Prahlad Friedman, Kenny Tran, Roland de Wolfe, and Scott Seiver.
