Negreanu Busts $10,000 WSOP H.O.R.S.E. in 18th, Off to Play Another Tourney For Prop Bet

I enter the Rio Amazon room a little later than expected, just in time to see fan favorite Daniel Negreanu eliminated in 18th from the WSOP $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. championship. Short stacked, he went all in with a flopped hearts flush draw and failed to connect, while Lee Goldman completed his Broadway straight. KidPoker leaves with a paltry take home of $18,254––admittedly equivalent to my very best take home and life-altering money for many. Still, this leaves Negreanu far from the bracelet he was seeking––he has taken significant action on a bet that he, along with Phil Ivey, will win a bracelet at this year’s WSOP. With no specific sums named, Ivey in an interview confirmed that the amount at stake well exceeds the $250,000 prize that was at stake in an early triple draw lowball event Negreanu finished second in. KidPoker takes a few obligatory photos with fans before scooting to the payout cage, saying he needs to rush and “enter another tournament.” Probably doesn’t matter what the tourney is––could be $1,000 badugi or whatever––it’s the prop bet that he is after.
