Daniel Negreanu’s bracelet thirst course continues. A US-American beats the poker legend at Seven Card Stud in the heads-up.
Poker legend Daniel Negreanu barely missed his seventh winning bracelet at the 2019 WSOP at a poker world championship in his home town of Las Vegas.
“Kid Poker” had to bow to US American John Hennigan at Seven Card Stud with a $10,000 buy-in in the heads-up. Negreanu’s dry spell thus continues. He won his last bracelet at the 2013 WSOP.
He matched Negreanu with his sixth bracelet in the list of players with the most bracelets. Both are in ninth place together. Hennigan also collected $245,451 in prize money.
Hennigan and Negreanu duelled for four hours in the heads-up, changing the lead several times. Negreanu can comfort himself with prize money of 151,700 dollars.
The 44-year-old Canadian has already collected over 40 million dollars in prize money, making him second in the world money rankings. Negreanu has been one of the best professional players for more than 20 decades and is now one of the few poker stars known in the USA outside the scene.
The Top 6 and their prize money:
1. John Hennigan (USA): 245,451 dollars
