  • EPTLive - Negreanu opens to 11bb - Oops or ?

    Really interesting hand on the featured table just now.

    Negreanu opens for 11bb, says he made a mistake reading the chip denominations, which the announcers say he has done several times in the past.

    Steve Silverman, who has been "eating Daniel's lunch" according to the announcers, asks him what he's got behind and puts him all in.

    Negreanu snap calls and shows AcK? to Silverman's KcJc.

    Ace on the river for Daniel and a double up to 851,500 leaving Silverman with appr 285,000.

    Reminded me a bit of a play TheLangolier witnessed and blogged about from this summer's HPT (Oops?).

    It does sound a bit like the hand in Dave's blog. I'll be interested to see this on the highlights package... eventually.

      Going by the commentary it is far from unusual for Negreanu to get the chip values mixed up so I do believe that it was probably a 'misclick' but I think that with the stacks being as deep as they were it was a pretty horrible shove.

      If it (Negreanu's pretend mistake) was a deliberate move then it was pretty brilliant.

          Master of the miss-click with the bright stage lights and not wearing sun glasses.

          Should have borrowed Elky's $11K shades. Not sure but was it $30K for Daniel's new hair?

            I actually missed this hand as I was out tonight but it wouldn't surprise me if Daniel did "misclick" and then take advantage of the mistake he made. He hasn't actually played any poker at all since the WSOP so the occasional mistake would not be completely unexpected from him, but would have to watch it back to know for sure if he was up to something tricky.

                I'm sure everyone has seen this, but I enjoy watching it from time to time.
