Another high roller event, another near win for Daniel Negreanu.
Just a week after finishing sixth (and banking $444,699) in the EPT Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller event, Negreanu nearly captured another major buy-in title. Holding the chip lead at various stages of final table play, Negreanu eventually finished second in the EPT Grand Final €25,000 High Roller event, earning $786,201 (or €598,600).
Igor Kurganov of Russia defeated Negreanu heads-up for the title. Kurganov, who has a string of high roller event cashes to his credit over the past year, banks €1,080,000 for the win.
Negreanu now has over $16M in career live earnings, placing him second behind Erik Seidel (by less than a million) on the all-time money winner’s list.
Justin Bonomo (€266,000) finish fourth. Phil Ivey (€73,200) finished ninth. Get full pay outs here.
