Negreanu Finishes 2nd In SCOOP Event #6 For $15,330

Negreanu Finishes 2nd In SCOOP Event #6 For $15,330Canadian poker pro Daniel ‘KidPoker’ Negreanu has finished runner-up in PokerStars SCOOP $1,050 NL Draw event #6 (high) for $15,330, despite initially thinking he was playing another format. Originally, the 37 year old tweeted:
“Playing my first #SCOOP2012 2-7 Single Draw NL playing all three, the $11, $109 and $1,050,” before the penny finally dropped and he re-tweeted:
“Haha OMG I have been playing the wrong game this whole time! It’s 5 card draw HIGH oops! Too funny.”
Nevertheless, it didn’t take Negreanu long to get back into the swing of things and despite crashing out of the $11 and $109 tournaments, he went on to reach the final table of the $1,050 competition. After French superstar Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier exited the six man final table in 3rd ($11,760), Negreanu went heads-up against Argentina’s ‘Maestro Shao,’ but didn’t have the best run of play, tweeting:
“Was even in the match then lost a brutal cooler both drawing 3 he made QQQ vs my JJJ. Down 3-1 in chips now.”
A little while later and it was all over, with Negreanu commenting:
“Another 2nd HA! Had him all in with KK vs JJ lost then a big one with AATT vs 444. Oh well. No more SCOOPs for me this week unfortunately.”
