2013 has been a great year for poker professional Daniel Negreanu. He recently took home the title at the High Roller event at the World Series of Poker Europe. That win just added to his great time in Europe as he finished 25th in the WSOPE main event.
Winning the High Roller event at the WSOPE was not easy for Negreanu as he had to come from behind at the final table. He managed to survive and not be eliminated when his 9-10 was able to chop against the K-Q of Jason Koon. He was able to double up against Erik Seidel and David Peters and he vaulted into second place in chips. He was then able to eventually win the title as he defeated Nicolau Villa-Lobos.
It was the sixth career WSOP bracelet for Negreanu who took home $979,955 for the win. That money increased his total for 2013 to $3.1 million. He also was able to win the World Series of Poker Player of the Year thanks to his finish in the WSOPE High Roller event.
There were a total of 80 players who put up the $25,000 euros for
the tourney. Negreanu was the winner with Villa-Lobos finishing second.
Philip Gruissem was third followed by David Peters, Timothy Adams,
Scott Seiver, Jason Koon, Erik Seidel and Joni Jouhkimainen.
