WSOP NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP: 7 Players Remain, Including Daniel Negreanu

Posted on 31 July 2015 by "T".

Loni Hardwood will lead the final seven players into today's WSOP National Championship final table at Harrah's Cherokee in North Carolina. Hardwood, a U.S. pro with close to $1.3 million in live tournament earnings, accumulated 1,340,000 in chips on Day 2.

There will be 3,660,000 chips in play when the final table kicks off, meaning that Hardwood has more than 36 percent of the chips in play and more than double as much as Darryll Fish (648,000) in second place.

Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu will enter the final table third in chips (543,000). Aside from the top prize of $341,599, Negreanu will take home his 7th bracelet if he wins the tournament! Of the remaining players, only Negreanu and Harwood paid the $10,000 buy-in*. WSOP granted free seats to the other finalists, whom were amongst 100 of the World Series of Poker Circuit's top players.

Seat 1: Vincent Moscati - 463,000 (46 bb)
Seat 2: Darryll Fish - 648,000 (64 bb)
Seat 3: Daniel Negreanu - 543,000 (54 bb)

it's set for Hardwood and Fish to battle it out for the glory-hole. mr. hardwood is gonna do all that he can to use his hard wood and bang mr. fish on the head with it, however mr. fish is probably gonna swim away from the dangerous waters and we are set for a few surprises here and there for sure.

You are crazy Pochui!!
I think Daniel Negreanu has a great chance to win another bracelet and would probably take the bracelet rather than the money.At least the ones that did pay have a chance and it is a brilliant freeroll for the other finalists.

I would really like to see Daniel Negreanu go onto win this tournament because he is definitely one of my favourite poker players and his video blogs are always a very good watch

Unfortunately Daniel Negreanu failed to add to his bracelet collection and only managed to finish in 6th place for a nice sum of $63,000,the money probably means nothing to him compared with the bracelet.

Akex Masek who had 10BB compare to 134BB of Loni Harwood managed to end up HU with her and for a little while was chip leader but Harwood came back and won the tournament.However Masek collect a very good second place money having started last in chips in the final table very good come back.

I would have really like to see from Daniel Negreanu to win this tournament because he is one of the few who actually payed his entry fee here and that ticket was not gifted by the pokergods rather just his wallet. BTW superpochie these players are in need of your ballshaving manuals so I strongly suggest to urge the organizators (by email or phone) to start handing them out as of right now.

I agree that Masek did extremely well to come from such a short stack to 2nd place and very close to snatching the title.I am sure we will see Daniel Negreanu fighting for bracelets again at the next series of WSOP events. Smile

Well, fighting is a strong word here for this - I mean I am not sure but Daniel probably did not hit anybody since middle school Big Smile - though of course he will take all the chance he could get next year's WSOP to win another bracelet.

Also interesting to make a note about Alex Masek here, who was in seventh place out of the final seven with only 10 BB worth of chips (very much push or fold situation) yet still managed to arrive on the second place a day later behind Loni. I just thought it's worth mentioning since nobody noticed here.
