Pros React To Negreanu's 2015 WSOP ME 11th Place Bust Out

Pros React To Negreanu's WSOP ME 11th Place Bust OutDaniel Negreanu sits atop poker’s ‘All Time Money List‘ with $30,622,512 in winnings, 6-WSOP bracelets, and 2-WPT titles to his credit. Needless to say, as well as the many highs he has enjoyed over his illustrious career the 40 year-old Hall Of Famer has also had to endure some cruel disappointments, of which high on the list is his 11th place finish at this year’s WSOP Main event, last night.
On Day 7, Negreanu had been sitting in the middle of the 27 player field as the number of players gradually were whittled down, but he eventually hit a downswing which left him near the bottom of the chip stacks with 13 competitors still remaining. Soon after, the fateful hand occurred in which Negreanu (As-4d) defended his big blind against Joe McKeehan (Jd-3d), before check-raising all-in on a Ad-Kc-10d flop. McKeehan quickly made the call and whilst the 3h on the turn kept Negreanu in front, the Qh lost him the 13.7 million pot and sent him crashing out of the main event in 11th place for a $526,778 payday.
Describing the moment the river card sealed his WSOP 2015 fate, Negreanu said: “I was shocked because I heard Mike [Matusow] and a couple of people cheer and then I was like, ‘They don’t realize that a queen makes a straight.’ The PokerStars sponsored pro also added: “My head hurts, because I legitimately lost my knees and hit my head on the ground. So I’m actually a bit dizzy, but it’s nothing a little vodka can’t heal.”
Talking to, Negreanu then went on to lament the missed opportunity he would have gotten as a November Niner to “promote the event, up the ratings, and get people really involved.” Negreanu’s elimination certainly came as a disppointment to many of his fellow pros and fans, and here are a few tweets posted following his 11th place finish:
