Daniel Negreanu is crushing the 2009 WSOP.
In an impressive response to Jeffrey Lisandro‘s Event #16 victory (and to his own crushing runner-up finish in Event #14), Negreanu has stepped up and final tabled yet another event. He is currently fourth in chips going into final table play in Event #18 ($10,000 Omaha 8B). A win here would put him and Erick Lindgren way out in front in their POY prop bets with Barry Greenstein and company. Negreanu trails the intense stare of Scott Clements (staring intensely above), who is chip leader with 1,445,000. Also alive are John Monnette (940,000), Daniel Alaei (540,000), and Annie Duke (225,000). We’ll have a Negreanu vlog from the break up soon.
Elsewhere, the Ladies Event is playing down its final table now. How do we know this? Because any time one of the ladies wins a hand, her cheering section screams like a sorority girl who hears the first few bars of “Come on Eileen” in a cheesy dance club.
Elsewhere elsewhere, less than 80 remain in Event #19 ($2,500 NLH Six-Handed). Among those remaining is aforementioned Erick Lindgren, racking up more POY points for the aforementioned prop bets. Layne Flack, Brock Parker, Men the Master (he’s still alive?), and Howard Lederer also remain.
Not alive in the Omaha 8B championship or any other event right now is Jean-Robert Bellande, who below discusses his now not-so-secret secret weapon which didn’t turn out to be much of a weapon at all.
