Daniel Negreanu Tries to Set Up Jean-Robert Bellande in New High Stakes Poker

On Tuesday night, Episode 11 of High Stakes Poker Season 10 aired on PokerGO. It featured the same lineup as the previous episode, which saw Jean-Robert Bellande become a magnet for pocket aces.

Others in the game included Daniel Negreanu, Andrew Robl, Jennifer Tilly, Stanley Tang, Stanley Choi, and Eric Persson, who was recently a guest on the PokerNews Podcast.

It was technically a $200/$400 no-limit hold’em cash game, but all players agreed to a mandatory $800 straddle.

Here’s how things stacked up at the start of the episode:

Player Stack
Andrew Robl $645,100
Eric Persson $408,500
Jean-Robert Bellande $314,500
Jennifer Tilly $156,800
Stanley Choi $153,500
Daniel Negranu $113,400
Stanley Tang $74,000

Robl Fails to Empty the Clip

Persson put on an $800 straddle and Choi raised to $2,200 first to act with the 65. Negreanu called two spots over holding the KJ and Robl three-bet to $11,500 holding the Q8 on the button. Bellande just called out of the small blind with his AK, and action folded back to Choi, who opted to call.

Negreanu released his hand and three players went to a flop of 797. JRB checked his flush draw, as did Choi, who actually had a straight flush draw. Robl continued for $10,000, Bellande called, and Choi did the same to see the 9 on the turn.

Two more checks on the double-paired board saw Robl bet $35,000, but he couldn’t shake JRB, who called. Choi got out of the way and the 4 completed the board on the river. With $138,300 in the pot, Bellande checked and Robl thought for a bit before conceding, “Alright, I’m going to give it up.”

He checked and JRB took down the six-figure pot with ace-high.

“I almost shoved it,” Robl lamented.

“I Can Either Go Home or Reload”

While the table was busy telling stories about the late Sam Grizzle, a big hand developed when Robl straddled and JRB looked down at the KK first to act. He raised to $3,000 and Tang called with the QJ before Persson did the same from the cutoff with the 75. Choi called from the button with his Q5 and then Tilly looked down at the AK in the small blind and popped it to $32,000.

With action back on Bellande, he asked Tilly for a count on her stack and then four-bet to $78,000. Action folded back to Tilly and she double-checked her cards before announcing, “All in.”

JRB snap-called and the duo opted to run it twice for the $357,000 pot. The 1045 flop on the first run was no help to Tilly, and neither was the 9 turn nor Q river.

On the second, the 7107 flop bricked for Tilly, as did the 6 turn as well as the J river. With that, JRB scooped the pot.

“This is very sad,” said Tilly, sending over her chips. “I can either go home or reload.”

She ultimately decided to rebuy for $100,000.

Negreanu Tries to Set Up Bellande

Negreanu straddled to $800 and Robl put on the double straddle to $1,600 when JRB raised to $5,000 with the 99. Tilly called from the big blind with the 97 and Negreanu looked down at the KK in the straddle before making it $25,000 to go.

Robl folded, Bellande called, and Tilly got out of the way to make it heads-up action to the 38J flop. Negreanu continued for another $25,000 and JRB flicked in a cranberry chip call. The K turn gave Negreanu top set and he tried to set a trap by checking.

JRB didn’t take the bait though and checked it back. Likewise, on the Q river Negreanu checked for a second time and JRB did the same. With that, Negreanu pulled in a pot worth $107,200

Battle of the Stanley’s

In one of the last hands of the episode, the straddle was one when Tang raised to $2,000 with the Q6 and Choi called with the J10 in the small blind. Robl came along from the straddle with the J8 and the flop fell 910J.

Two checks saw Tang bet $5,000 with his spade flush draw and Choi, who had checked top two pair, check-raised to $13,000. Robl folded top pair with an open-ended straight draw and Tang moved all in for $53,600. Choi called and the two agreed to run it twice for the $114,000 pot.

Neither the 2 turn nor 4 river on the first run helped Tang, but the Q turn on the second opened up a lot of options. Unfortunately for Tang, the 2 river was a brick and he watched the entire pot pushed to Choi.
