We caught up with the action on a flop, where Daniel Negreanu was in a pot against two other players.
Negreanu fired 8,200 from early position and was called by the player directly behind him and Chris Moore in middle position.
The turn brought the and it was checked to Moore, who fired 18,000 into the middle. Negreanu flatted, as did the player behind him.
It was checked to Moore again on the river and he fired 50,000 into the middle - sending a wave of disgust through Negreanu.
Negreanu sighed deeply and shook his head - clearly distraught about his decision. After a little thought, Negreanu folded his hand. Moore's remaining opponent also folded after tanking for a bit.
The camera crew for ESPN then asked Negreanu, who was recently moved to an outer table, to pull his hand back to show the camera to be used for Main Event footage. (Hands captured on outer tables use a small, portable camera to capture hole-card footage.)
"It's f***ing aces," Negreanu said. "I don't want to waste time with the T.V. stuff - just show my hand."
Negreanu's already-mucked hand was then revealed to be, in fact, pocket aces.
