shame that daniel negreanu was the first dude out, i'm sure many of the players would have nothing against spending more time with him, usually he looks like is the dude who is fun to spend time with. other than that i have nothing to add.

I think this player has helped a lot by his girlfriend Liv Boeree. When you have a professional poker girlfriend near you you can learn a lot about poker.

In this high roller I will mention the impressive performance of my coterraneo Ivan Luca who finished in position 5, taking more than 430,000 euros into his pocket. This Argentine player is already a regular of this type of tournaments with high buy in and it has been doing very well with great results. Congratulations to Ivan.-
