The year isn’t ending well for Daniel Negreanu, is it? The six-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner! The Canadian pro is out of the PokerGo Tour (PGT) Championship 2022. Poker universe awaited fireworks of massive power to go off when stalwarts like Negreanu, Jason Koon, Phil Ivey, and Stephen Chidwick lock horns for a winner takes all prize of $5,00,000. But sadly for DNegs, it was an endgame. Koon is leading the pack of poker wolves who will battle it out for glory and top prize.
When blinds were at 2,000/4,000, big blind ante 4,000, preflop action saw, DNegs from the big blind position raised all Koon raise to 8,500, Jeremy Ausmus 3-bet to 27,000, Sean Winter 4-bets to 90,000 and even before he could throw in his chips, DNegs hinted at the dealer for a shove.
The Canadian pro raised all-in for 233K. Looking at this, Koon folded and the action was left to unfold between Winter, Negreanu and Ausmus. The five-time WSOP bracelet winner heavy-heartedly folded AK and backed out of the hand. Now it was Winter’s K ♠ K ♣ vs Negreanu’s Q ❤ Q ♣. The community cards fell: 4 ❤ 6 ♠ K ♦ 3 ♦ 7 ♦ . And with that Negreanu’s rival who was leading preflop eventually won the hand with three of a kind with his Kings.

When the top 21 players were locked for the PGT Championship, the poker brand made an official announcement about the event on its social media handles, and the world was intrigued to see if Negreanu turned this one around. Fans and followers were thrilled when ‘KidPoker’ took down the Super High Roller Bowl VII like a gangsta and made it very clear that 2022 will be a smashing year. But that doesn’t seem like the case now.
