Negreanu became PokerGO Cup best player
Daniel Negreanu started to play in PokerGO Event #8 with high hopes of winning. He also needed to earn rating points to beat Imsirovic in the leaderboard.
On 14 July, the four high rollers fought at the final table of $100 000 PokerGO Event #8. Prestigious cup and million dollars were at stake. Imsirovic and Coleman lost the series final and gave Negreanu opportunity to win the leaderboard.
As a result, Negreanu was eliminated in fourth place and earned $230 000 of prize money. He left the game in a very offensive way, as he lost with pocket aces to pocket eights. The eight was dealt on the turn and Negreanu fell off his chair.
Daniel didn’t root for Soverel, although his victory was quite possible, because Sam went heads-up against Cary Katz.
Daniel encouraged Katz and Cary changed situation concerning the chips’ deficit (3 to 1) due to his timely bluffs that eliminated Soverel from the pots. Katz defeated short-stacked Soverel, and Negreanu went to celebrate victory in the leaderboard.
Negreanu received additional $50 000 for the victory in PokerGO Cup Series championship. By the way, he also enriched with $996 000, which he won four times by entering ITM zone in PokerGO Cup.
