EPT Monte Carlo: Hevad Khan, Negreanu Khan’t

April 30, 2009

EPT

An early bath for the Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu here in Monte Carlo. Returning with a round 30,000 – his precise day one starting stack – he found himself on the same table as Hevad Khan, who had an even smaller stack of 25,000, but the same double-up-or-die mentality as the Canadian.

Early in the first orbit, Khan made it 2,500 from the button and Negreanu called in the big blind. They saw a flop of K-5-7 and both checked. The turn was a 3 and Negreanu bet 3,300, Khan made it 8,500 and Negreanu called. The river was a 4 and Negreanu moved all in. Khan called pretty sharply and showed 5-3 for two pair; Negreanu mucked and was down to less than 8,000, while Khan scaled the dizzy heights of 50,000+.

Negreanu didn’t hang around to get the remainder of his chips in. He shoved from the button behind K-6 and the big blind woke up with aces. That was that for Negreanu, who continues to search for his first cash on the EPT.
