Close, but no cigar this time.
Daniel Negreanu just missed his seventh bracelet on Thursday, finishing second in 2014 WSOP Event #13 ($10,000 No Limit 2-7 Lowball). Making that leap from six to seven bracelets is a major milestone, if nothing else because somehow, someway, Layne Flack also has six bracelets. Does. Not. Compute.
Negreanu lost out on bracelet #7 to Paul Volpe, who never relinquished the final table chip lead. Volpe earns his first bracelet and $253,524. The win gives Volpe $2,705,175 in career live earnings.
Negreanu earned $156,674 for second. Jason Mercier was third ($99,313) and Brian Rast fourth ($67,264).
