Negreanu couldn’t make it past poker master Abe Mosseri on the ultimate day of the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo championship and had to eventually settle for the runner-up place bagging $241,851
The poker tournament was set to finish last night but after a marathon run of three-handed play it was postponed by a day. However, it didn’t last too long as heads-up battle between Mosseri and Negreanu held for just three hands.
“Last night was more back-and-forth but today I just pounded him,” said Mosseri. “Obviously when you are playing with such big blinds the cards matter a lot.”
Mosseri pocketed $388,795 for winning the tournament outright. It was also just his second WSOP gold bracelet.
To set up the final heads-up tussle between Mosseri and Negreanu, which began with Negreanu holding a heavy chip advantage of just less than 3-to-1.
The two pros played on for less than a level before the WSOP tournament staff was required to stop play for the evening. The duo returned on Wednesday, June 7 to finally determine a bracelet winner. On the final hand, Mosseri raised and Negreanu called instantly. The flop displayed 9 5 2
and Negreanu bet. Mosseri raised and Negreanu went all-in with the J 6 5 4 . Mosseri held 8 8 6 3 . The turn brought K
and river revelaed K . Mosseri’s kings and eights were good enough to scoop the pot, securing him the coveted WSOP bracelet.
Daniel Negreanu and most other poker pros in the event play poker online fiercely.
