Kurganov Widens the Gap

Posted 2012-05-01 GMT+1 by

Igor Kurganov raised to 160,000 from the button and Daniel Negreanu called from the big blind to take the {Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop. Negreanu checked and Kurganov bet 180,000. Negreanu called.

The turn was the {7-Diamonds} and Negreanu checked again. Kurganov stayed on the gas and fired 400,000. Negreanu called.

The river was the {7-Spades} and Negreanu checked with a little over 1.3 million in chips behind. Kurganov fired 680,000 and Negreanu went into the tank. He eventually folded and Kurganov won the pot to move over five million in chips. Kurganov now has nearly a four million chip lead.
