Outcome

Preflop, with the blinds at 1,500 and 3,000 and a 500 ante, Salter raised to 6,500 from early position, Negreanu called in the small blind, and Martin Jacobson called in the big blind. On the flop Negreanu checked, Jacobson checked, Salter bet 11,000, Negreanu raised to 27,000, Jacobson folded, Salter went all-in, and Negreanu called.

Analysis

Negreanu took his small pocket pair to the flop, which gave him an open-ended straight draw on a low board with just one overcard to his pair. Salter connected as well with his flush draw and live overcards. Salter was happy to fire a semibluff at the flop with his equity, but Negreanu pushed back. Negreanu likely put Salter on high cards and a continuation bluff, so he responded with a check raise. Salter was ready to commit, responding with the all-in. At this point Negreanu only faced an additional 15,000 for a pot around 93,000, so he quickly called. Salter improved on the turn to his flush, leaving Negreanu’s straight draw useless. The third diamond paired the board however, leaving Negreanu with outs to a Five or another Trey for the full house. Negreanu was drawing thin, but he managed to fill up on the river and eliminate Salter and his teammate Dmitry Urbanovich out of the money.
