Daniel Negreanu’s Earns Confusing WSOP Stat at the Rio Match

The most engrossing Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino event, which ends on Tuesday, Daniel Negreanu is presenting his best performance at the World Series of Poker (WSOP). However, at the 17-series stretch, the only winning prize was a bracelet inside the Las Vegas casino, becoming quite confusing stat statistics in WSOP history.

With three players staying back in Event number 84: $50,000 at the Pot-Limit Omaha, Negreanu led on Sunday morning with a 2-1 chip. There were only two players who could stop him from ending an eight-year bracelet drought: Phil Hellmuth and Jeremy Ausmus attempting to extend his bracelet record to 17.

Blings are now a huge factor; there was no distribution of cards on the side of GGPoker Ambassador. This led Negreanu to earn the third spot, Hellmuth at the second and Ausmus at the third.

From the time Daniel won the much-awaited World Series of Poker championship in 2013, he has finished in the top three in nine different live WSOP events. He stated why he wasn’t able to seal the deal at the final table.

Daniel thinks many players fail to understand the insight of the poker game. It is essential not to forget there in the long term. Losing is a natural part of life for everyone. He won his first eight final tables at the start of his career.

Performance Rate This Year

Negreanu’s solo bracelet at the Rio event in 2008 had a $2,000 buy-in hold ’em limit tournament. After the post-tournament, he ended up empty several times. The performance of Negreanu at the Rio Olympics may be considered lackluster by sports enthusiasts who believe only titles matter. However, despite just winning one bracelet, his achievements at the WSOP over the previous 17 years have been amazing.

In 2013 and 2019, Negreanu earned the title Player of the Year until a recalculation revealed Robert Campbell as the winner. Robert has been a perennial contender of POY for 15 years. From 2005, he made it to the 26 final tables in Rio, which is one of the most impressive WSOP statistics you’ll ever see.
