The latest news update from Day 5 of the World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship couldn’t have been bitter for Daniel Negreanu fans. The six-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner busted in the 17th position for $1,76,200 at the hands of Lucas Foster. After Negreanu’s exit from the WPT World Championship at the 17th spot, remaining survivors are guaranteed a minimum payday of $217,100.
Daniel Negreanu (pocket twos) opens with 800,000 from the button position and Lucas Foster (pocket kings) three-bets to 2.3 Million from the big blind. The GGPoker Ambassador makes the call. The flop presents Tc 4c 2d and Foster opts for a continuation-bet of 2.5 Million keeping faith in his Cowboys. Leading the flop is Negreanu who calls given his three of kind.
The turn brings Ts which gives Foster two pairs but still keep ‘KidPoker’ ahead as he hit a full boat. But a twist comes in when Foster goes all-in and Negreanu calls with his remaining 5 Million to see a river of Ks which gave Negreanu’s rival a bigger full house and with that it was a wrap for the Super High Bowl VII winner at the WPT World Championship 2022.
That’s a wrap. Felt it in my bones.
T42 flop I call with 22
Turn T he goes all in with KK
About 22 million in that pot.
Out in 17th

The Canadian pro was among the top 20 stacks when he entered Day 5. DNegs resumed the game with 7,525,000 chips (38 BB) at his disposal to battle it out with the 37 survivors left in the game. WPT World Championship 2022 Day 5 resumed at Level 27 when blinds were at 100K/200K, big blind ante 200K. Benny Glaser entered Day 5 as the chip lead with 28,800,000 chips (144 BB).
The WPT World Championship 2022 had a record-breaking field of 2,960 entries. And many notable players from the global poker community arrived at Wynn Las Vegas to grind in this event which for the first time offered a massive guarantee of $15 Million. Players like Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth (busted Day 2) got in just in time before late registration ended. Justin Bonomo (7th in Top 10 Richest Poker Players By Net Worth 2022) sadly busted on Day 2. Tony Dunst chopped the bubble with another female player called ‘KITKAT’ and happily posed for a picture with her.
The advertised guarantee of this highly anticipated event was obviously crushed given the mind-boggling number of entries. The final six players will take home a pay cheque of at least $1 Million which is pretty damn impressive. The top prize is the colossal figure of $4,136,000 which will be any player’s dream to take home.
