Daniel Negreanu Wins WSOPAP Main Event
Last week the World Series of Poker hosted the first ever Asia-Pacific Main Event and it was deemed a great success after 405 players took part.
It was also a huge success for Daniel Negreanu who broke his WSOP losing streak and earned his fifth gold bracelet. In addition to the bracelet Negreanu also took home over $1 million in prize money.
Negreanu, who hadn’t won a gold bracelet in five years, was thrilled at his win. He is now tied on the all-time WSOP bracelet list in 12th place.
After his win Negreanu posted on Twitter, “I won!!!!!!!!!! YES! Very happy right now. Thanks to all my friends and family for giving me the confidence I needed! So happy!!”
At the heads up stage of the tournament Negreanu took on Daniel Marton. Negreanu had a huge chip lead, 11 million to 1.2 million, when play began. However, it didn’t take Marton long to double up and he continued to increase his chip stack.
In the end Negreanu’s pocket deuces were too much for Marton’s A-7. The river failed to help Marton in anyway giving Negreanu the win. Immediately after the win Negreanu asked for alcohol and was seen partying with fellow pro Phil Ivey.
