Negreanu's Unlucky Exit in the Super High Roller Bowl on Omaha
One of the most prestigious and expensive events for pot-limit Omaha fans is currently taking place in Las Vegas. This is the Super High Roller Bowl PLO with a huge $100,000 buy-in. The most famous Canadian player, Daniel Negreanu, did not manage to achieve a successful result in this tournament. He was eliminated on the money bubble of the event, not long lasting in the top 5 of the chip count.

At the time of this hand, only 7 of 38 players were left in the prestigious event. $1,292,000 in prize money awaits the winner.
Interestingly, the chip leader in the final is Isaac Haxton, who a couple of weeks ago won a similar NLH tournament for $300,000. If the American succeeds this time as well, he will be able to set a new record in the history of the Super High Roller Bowl.
