WSOP Hit and Run: Negreanu Falls Short; November 9 Set; PokerStars and DFS; Poker Pro Arrested?

Staff : July 15th, 2015


So close. The poker community was so close to having their greatest ambassador make the final table of the WSOP Main Event. There is no Daniel Negreanu, but the 2015 November Nine is set. PokerStars seems serious about DFS. And more.

WSOP roundup

Event #68: WSOP Main Event Day 7: Updates

Daniel Negreanu’s 2015 WSOP Main Event run ended exactly where his 2001 Main Event run ended; in 11th place. Negreanu nursed a short stack for most of the day before finally succumbing to Joe McKeehan who ended the day with a massive chip lead, more than double the nearest player.

With the elimination of Negreanu the poker world was, for the third time in four years, denied an easily sellable narrative.

In 2012 it was Gaelle Baumann’s and Elisabeth Hille’s run towards the final table that had the poker world captivated. The two were trying to join Barbara Enright as the only female players to make the WSOP Main Event final table. Enright finished 5th in 1995. Unfurtunately they both stone cold bubbled: Hille finished 11th and Baumann 10th.

In 2013 it was 2001 WSOP ME Champion Carlos Mortensen who just missed the final table, finishing in 10th place.

And with Negreanu’s 11th place finish it appears the poker world is cursed… at least when it comes to stories the mainstream press would eat up.
