Daniel Negreanu wins WSOP Bracelet 5

Daniel NegreanuDaniel Negreanu is one of the most famous faces in poker. One of the vital few who is recognised by both his peers and the general public as one of the top dogs in the business he has revelled in for over 16-years. 

But the man who goes by the nickname ‘Kid Poker’ has been on a barren run of late; that’s if you count winning titles – and not winning money – as the barometer of success.

It has been two years since Negreanu last won a poker tournament, and, even then, it was a fun golf/poker hybrid event featuring 17-players at the European Poker Tour (EPT) Vilamoura. 

But that didn’t stop Negreanu adding a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet to his list of 2013 goals, a goal that has since been crossed off his list after taking down the A$10,000 WSOP Asia Pacific Main Event for $1,087,160.

It was a sweet moment for the Canadian, especially after coming fifth in the WSOP A$2,200 Mixed Event that was won by Phil Ivey just a few days earlier. 

Negreanu has had plenty of near misses since he last won a bracelet in 2008, when he captured the $2,000 Limit Hold’em event for $204,863, but the loss to Barry Shulman, when heads-up for the £10,000 WSOP Europe Main Event in London, is the one that ended up the latest poker news.

Negreanu’s victory against the local lad, Daniel Marton, means that the Canadian will lead the WSOP Player of the Year race when he enters the halls of the Rio in Vegas this summer. When the concept was first created in 2004, it was Daniel Negreanu who won it with one bracelet and five final tables.
