Daniel Negreanu On Tilt After Frustrating 2011 WSOP

By his high standards, Canadian pro Daniel Negreanu has had a slow start to the 2011 WSOP which caused him to erupt after suffering a bad beat on Day 2 of the $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship.
With $14,601,194 in live tournament earnings, the four times WSOP bracelet winner has had a total of 48 cashes at the WSOP for $3,515,597. This includes 8 cashes at WSOP 2008, 9 cashes at WSOP 2009, and 6 cashes at WSOP 2010.
However, after 29 events at this year’s competition Daniel Negreanu has cashed just once in 59th place at the $1,500 Shootout No Limit Hold’em Event for $4,998.
Negreanu’s mounting frustration was visible after being eliminated from the $3k PLO Event, when he tweeted:
“I’m going to win something before this WSOP is over. I’ve never been much of a quitter and not about to quit now.”
However, it was Negreanu’s reaction after busting out of Event #27: $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship which was the most telling. At the start of the day Daniel was sitting on a monster stack but his columns then started to crumble dramatically as the blinds rose.
Then with just 27 players remaining in the competition, Negreanu lost a big hand to Steve Landfish on the river, and was seen to jump up and knock his chair over before smashing his headphones on the floor. As Negreanu explained on his twitter page:
“Just broke my headphones for real. He beat me two more hands in a row. Last one we both made flushes on river. Down to 27k.”
It then got worse for Negreanu who committed most of his chips pre-flop with Qc-As after Tam Hang raised in early position with 10s-9s. With the flop falling Jc-Jh-Qs, Negreanu pushed the rest of his stack to the centre of the tabel with Hang making the call.
Unfortunately for Daniel, a Js on the turn and Ks on the river bought his opponent a straight flush, prompting Negreanu to kick the table, jump out of his seat and let out a few words of astonishment before walking out of the tournament.
“What the hell! Last hand AQ vs 9T spades. Flop QJJ turn J. River K I lose. He made a straight flush out in 26th and ready to break stuff,” wrote Daniel.
By the next day, however, Negreanu had overcome his frustration and was seen sporting a new pair of headphones while trying his luck at another WSOP event. As he ironically commented at the start of play: 
“Just bought a new pair of Dre’s Beats headphones. If I lose to another straight flush today that’ll make two pairs smashed in two days!”
