Daniel Negreanu Wins 6th WSOP Bracelet, POY RaceAfter winning the WSOP Asia-Pacific $10k Main Event in Australia earlier this year, Canadian pro Daniel Negreanu has now taken down the WSOP Europe €25k High Roller in France, to boost his overall WSOP bracelet tally to six.
Event #7 of the WSOPE attracted an elite field of 80 players to create a prize pool worth €1,920,000 ($2,595,191). On Day 3 of the competition Negreanu then managed to see off a packed final table of nine, including Brazilian pro Nicolau Villa Lobos heads-up, to claim the bracelet, and collect the €725,000 ($979,955) first place prize.
On the final hand of the WSOP Europe €25k High Roller, Villa-Lobos  with 5-5 was all-in pre-flop against Negreanu’s pocket jacks, and after the board rolled out Q-9-2-K-3, the elated poker pro took to twitter, and wrote:
“Thank you ALL for your support- I WON! I am on cloud right now and love each and every one of you. Even those of you who hate me haha :-)”
