Daniel Negreanu chops one

Daniel Negreanu pulls back his chips after chopping the pot
Daniel Negreanu was all in and at risk when his [Qh][Th] was up against his opponent's [Ad][Td] on a [9h][7d][8d][6c] board.  Both players had turned a straight, but each had outs for the win.  Daniel could win the pot if a non-diamond jack hit the board, and his opponent could win with a diamond.  20% of the time Daniel would be eliminated, but the [2s] river left the pot to be chopped and Daniel to fight on.  He now sits on 21,250.

Watch the action unfold below:
