Daniel Negreanu played his 7th final table of the year and managed to register a win. DNegs nailed the top spot for a sum of $147,500 in Event 3 at the PokerGo Tour (PGT) PLO Series presented by PLO Mastermind. Event 3 which was a $5,100 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) tournament saw ‘KidPoker’ make the final table as the chip leader.

Heads-up saw DNegs beat Indian-origin player Anuj Agarwal to grab the PGT PLO Series trophy. This win was Negreanu first of the series and second title of the year. The popular poker pro vowed to have a bumper after a not-so-exciting 2023. 

Earlier when the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2024 schedule was announced, the Canadian revealed his quality over quantity approach. He decided on playing lesser tourneys and taking a good amount of rest during the series.

In the final hand of the heads-up session, Negreanu got dealt A K Q 9 while his rival had A 5 4 3 . The blinds were at 125/250 and ‘KidPoker’ was way ahead in chips (13, 250,000) and the Indian-origin player only had 1,500,000 chips at hand to battle the six-time WSOP bracelet winner. 

Agarwal raised to $750K preflop, and Negreanu pushed $1.5 Million from the big blind position. Agarwal had to call all-in and he did. The dealer fanned out a flop of 3 J K . Just one more club card and Negreanu was the winner with an Ace-high flush. And the turn card brough 2 of clubs which sealed the deal for Negreanu’s second win of the season. The runner-up had a payday of $95K which is the seventh highest pay cheque of his poker career.
