Negreanu will play at the final table of the WSOP 2019 event

​WSOP 2019 has started and poker players have immediately joined the fight for trophies. The first bracelet event in this series is the $10 000 buy-in tournament in the Super Turbo Bounty format.

There were 204 entries which formed a prize pool of $1 305 600, and the winner of this tourney will receive $345 000. In total, 31 people got into the prize zone, and eight of them have already won a gold bracelet (at least once in their life).

The record holder among them is Eric Seidel, professional who has got 8 of such awards. This time the titled poker player took the 25th place and won only $11 000. Considering the buy-in of $10 000, the amount of the prize money he received is purely symbolic.

The first game day of the tournament is over and the remaining punters (there are 6 of them) packed up their chips. At the moment, American Asher Conniff is a chip leader, but everything may change tomorrow. A real poker legend Daniel Negreanu will play at the final table of the event. The player has missed the trophies and really wants to get a gold bracelet.
