14 players paid the buy-in of €1,100 and entered the Fairways and Felts Challenge the other day. These 14 players were divided into teams on the Pinhal Golf Course and received poker chips accordingly to how well they did. After a hard day on the golf course all of them sat down at the poker table with the chips they had accumulated.
After 5 hours of poker Daniel Negreanu stood as the champion after defeating Pieter de Korver (also a PokerStars Pro) in heads up. For the win Daniel received the first place prize of 8,000 Euro. Not a lot of money for someone like Daniel Negreanu, but I'm still sure that he was really happy with the win since the Fairways and Felts Challenge was one of the main reason he came to play EPT Vilamoura.
