If you didn't read the news about Daniel Idema's $10k Limit Hold'em win yesterday, you really missed out on something! Yes, we didn't only write about the winner and the final table - we also wrote about when Daniel Negreanu went bananas and smashed his headphones. Below you can read what happened. Enjoy!
Daniel Negreanu had a monster chip lead for some time during Day 1 of the $10k Limit Hold'em championship, but his downfall came during day 2 when there were around 27 players left. After he lost a big hand to Steve Landfish on the river, Negreanu shot up, accidentally tipping his chair over, and slammed his headphones on the ground. Pieces from the headphones flew all over the room. It was clear that Negreanu was extremely frustrated with how he lost the hand. However, he sat back down at the table with his remaining stack of 27,000 without saying a word. But it didn't take long before it was time for another bad beat....
Daniel had dropped to just about 20,000 when he decided to commit most of his stack pre flop when Tam Hang had raised in early position. The flop came JJQ, and Negreanu pushed in his remaining chips. Hang called.
Negreanu just needed to dodge a king or an eight. The turn card was the J, giving Negreanu the full house. Negreanu said "well that does it" before stopping himself, realizing that Hang still had straight flush draw. Negreanu couldn't believe his eyes when the K hit the river. He jumped out of his seat and nearly drop kicked the table. A frustrated Daniel Negreanu gave everyone a piece of his mind before leaving the tournament room.
