The 639 players who entered Event #5 ($1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Hold'em) on Wednesday have now become only 13 players. The Canadian Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu is one of them and he's in second place at the moment with 300,000 - 15,000 chips behind the chip leader Brand Hale.

A key pot for Daniel Negreanu occured about 1 hour ago when he raised Bryan Pellegrino, who had a big lead, to 63,000. Pellegrino announced pot-sized raise and Negreanu quickly went all in for 146,000. Pellegrino called. 

Pellegrino: AClubASpade

Negreanu: KHeartKSpade

"Sorry," announced Pellegrino.

"It's not over yet," Negreanu replied.

The board ran out 9Heart5HeartJClubKClubJHeart and a non-nochalant Negreanu said, "I spiked a king, didn't I?"

ha nice hit on the turn.

so sick to see aces get beat in a heads up AI but feels awesome when you get that luck to go your way.

Hope Daniel can take take this one down.

What a way for Daniel Negreanu to enter in the race for the winning: going against the chipleader behind him on the pre-flop and stacking a Knife like this. Pellegrino, if not on tilt at this moment, will definitely remember this hand the next time both of them run for a hand at this tourney.

As of 2012, his total live tournament winnings exceed $16,100,000.[2] His 51 cashes at the WSOP account for $3,634,251 of those winnings.[16] He recently became the all-time leading money winner for tournament poker, surpassing Phil Ivey, only to be surpassed by Erik Seidel.
