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.
