Daniel Negreanu-Out

Daniel Negreanu moved all in for his last 240,000 from early position. It folded around to Kevin Pollak in the cutoff, and after tanking for about 90 seconds, he moved all in for about 500,000. Everyone else folded, and the cards were tabled.

Negreanu: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Pollak: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Negreanu was in a world of hurt, and he was looking for a king or diamonds going to the flop. He got no help from that, as it came {5-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. Pollak was standing up, rubbing his hands on his head, while Negreanu sat in his chair to await his fate. The turn brought the {5-Diamonds}, and Negreanu was looking for a king and a king only.

River: {3-Clubs}

It's another Day 5 bustout for Daniel Negreanu, who wished the whole table good luck before making his exit. As always, Negreanu was extremely gracious in defeat, and is still posing for pictures with fans who are lining up in the mothership as we are typing this. Kevin Pollak said before the tournament that Negreanu was one of his poker idols, and while he loves to have the chips, he surely didn't want them to come from Negreanu, who will have to wait for next year to have another shot at the Main Event Final Table.
