Though favored to win the Limited Hold'em Six-Max event, poker pro Daniel Negreanu lost to online poker legend Brock Parker, who plays under the name Maria Nuccia. 

Rated 135th best poker player so far this year by Bluff Magazine, Parker walked away with his first World Series of Poker bracelet and $223,688 in prize money.

"[Negreanu]'s a nice guy and I hope he wins more bracelets, but I'm glad I won," Parker told PokerListings.com.

"He was definitely one of the best players at the table and one of the players I least wanted to have to face, but it turned out to be easy because of the cards."

Parker initially fell behind well behind Negreanu before eventually turning things around.

"I wasn't all that concerned when I fell behind," Parker said. "I still had chips and I was never super short. I mean, I had been shorter at other times in the final table."

From PokerListings.com:

Parker turned two pair to take down a big pot and that seemed to swing the momentum.

Within the span of a few hands he had reclaimed the chip lead and his rush clearly tilted Kid Poker.

"I don't want to see another turn card," he told Parker. "Because you're always going to hit it."

As more and more of his chips shuttled across the felt to Parker's stack, Negreanu got more and more unsettled.

This was Parker's biggest win to date.
