None other than maple syrup lover Daniel Negreanu was the last man standing in the WSOPE High Roller event which concluded today after three days of intense battle. The first place gave Negreanu €725,000 in prize money and yet another WSOP bracelet (his sixth WSOP bracelet in total).
The High Roller final table kicked off with Negreanu dead last which he explained to WSOP.com: "I honestly felt like I was going to win [the event] the whole time," Negreanu admitted. "The thing was I played the Main Event earlier and I sat with 10-15 big blinds the whole tournament. I was fighting it, but I ended up getting knocked out 25th. Then I thought to myself, 'Eight big blinds? How are they gonna knock me out again?' And once I doubled up and was at about 20 [big blinds]...once I was back in the mix and I doubled up again, I saw the faces, I saw the people looking around. I could sense it and I felt like, here it is, my opportunity to win this thing".
The heads-up between Negreanu and Nicolau Villa-Lobos reached its deciding moment when Villa-Lobos went all in holding a pocket of 5's (
) while Negreanu called and showed a pocket of J's (

| Way to go Kidpoker on WSOP POY for the 2nd time, he's such a fantastic tournament player and congrats on his 6th bracelet too. More to come for sure lol. And also congrats for the 2nd place finisher who I heard won his seat via a satellite... |

| I think this is a huge win for him especially in the high roller as I don't think everyone gives him a lot of credit for being one of the better players in the big cash or tournament events. One hell of a year, nice way to seal victory too Jacks over fives with the higher flush draw too.|

| Nice finally told you he will win the high roller bracelet, he had a good table and kudos to him for exploiting it.|
The final hand he had just too much equity to win, cant see him lose with pocket JJ lol.
Anyway congratulations to him and hope he keeps up winning till the end of the year.
He had a good year so far, lots of wins this year cheers!

| Great work Daniel, he deserves this winning I assume.|
By the way, going all-in with 5s...mmm.
I don't know how to play small pocket pairs in heads-up.
If I have pocket 5s, I'll just go see the flop, not all-in.

| daniel negreanu still seems to be playing 'out of this world poker' after all these years at being at the very top of the poker world. he has an uncanny ability of knowing what other people are holding. he seems to know when his opponent has a medium hand and always puts him to the test with a large bet. great, great player and a surefire hall of famer|
