Daniel Negreanu made his first final table of the 2022 PokerGO Cup count. On Tuesday, the defending series champion won Event #6: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $350,000. With the victory, Negreanu is now in the top 10 of the series leaderboard and very much in contention for back-to-back titles.
Event #6: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em attracted a field of 35 entries, with Negreanu being one of them. It was the first time during the 2022 PokerGO Cup that Negreanu reached the money after he fell short in the first five tournaments of the series. He made his first cash count and came out on top of a very competitive final table.
At the final table, Negreanu fought his way off the short stack to get himself into contention for the win. When play was four-handed, he found a key double up with ace-eight against Sean Winter’s ace-queen, spiking an eight.
Negreanu came into Day 2 in fourth chip position with five players remaining. He battled his way to heads-up play against Winter and then sealed the deal to get the victory.
