  • If you are a fan of Daniel Negreanu, it’s time to celebrate. Not only he reached the final table in a WSOPE High Roller event, guaranteed himself a second WSOP Player of the Year title and even managed to climb from 9th place to win the whole event and his 6th bracelet.

    Negreanu – WSOP POTY 2013

    Who could have thought that the shortest stack at the High Roller table make his way back and claim the title. Of course it is not impossible. But with a few conditions that were present, Daniel Negreanu has done a colossal job.

    First of all, for a long time before the final table Negreanu has not been playing to win. He had to preserve his stack and survive until the final table which guaranteed him Player of the Year title.

    Second, by the final Table time Philip Gruissem has an overwhelming chip lead against all other opponents.

    And third, as this is WSOPE High Roller, the field was as tough as it can ever get with Erik Seidel, David Peters, Timothy Adams, Scott Seiver.

    Overall, Negreanu’s results in WSOP come around two wins, two more final tables and 6 more cashes generating him over $2.180.000 this year in WSOP alone. But it’s not really about the money for Negreanu. And not even bracelets. He has become the first player ever to conquer Player of the Year race twice.

    But it’s not all over in WSOP as the €10.000 Main Event Final Table resumes today. Among the big names there is EPT London winner, online wiz-kid Benny Spindler, WSOP winner Fabrice Soulier and WSOP and WPT title holder young Dominik Nitsche. The chip leader is Adrien Mateos but with €1 million for the winner it’s all to play for.
