Daniel Negreanu Wins $352,881 At EPT Barcelona High Roller

Daniel Negreanu Wins $352,881 At EPT Barcelona High RollerDaniel Negreanu has won €263,800 ($352,881) at the EPT Barcelona €10,000 High Roller, after narrowly missing out on the title against Thomas Muhlocker.
At the end of three days of action, which included his controversial outburst after being penalized according to the “first card off the deck” rule, Negreanu eventually made it all the way to heads-up play against Thomas Muhlocker. As the final battle commenced, Negreanu held an impressive 6-1 chip advantage over his Austrian opponent, but ultimately had to settle for a runner-up finish following a series of coolers which left his chip stack depleted after just a few hands. As Negreanu explained in a tweet later:
“Finished 2nd. Lost 44 vs AA, 44 vs 99 then AQ vs AK. Wouldn’t have done anything differently at all. Oh well, party time it is!”
2013 EPT Barcelona €10,000 High Roller final table payouts as follows:
1 Thomas Muhlocker – €390,700 ($512,583)
2 Daniel Negreanu – €263,800
3 Jean Noel Thorel – €181,500
4 Joni Jouhkimainen – €148,000
5 Jonathan Duhamel – €118,000
6 Ole Schemion – €90,700
7 Richard Yong – €66,000
8 David Benefield – €47,850
Despite finishing in second spot, though, the 39 year-old certainly still had plenty of reasons to celebrate as he now finds himself in pole position atop the Global Poker Index, which ranks the best 300 live tournament poker players from around the world.
“WOW! Just found out I am #1 on the @GlobalPokerIndx I can’t believe it! So happy and in shock. Wow wow wow!!! Very proud right now!” exclaimed Negreanu on his twitter account.
The Canadian’s impressive accomplishment comes after a successful 2013 in which he has already amassed $2.2 million in earnings, including winning the WSOP Asia-Pacific Main Event in April for $1,087,160.
