Daniel Negreanu Wins 2013 WSOPE High Roller Event

After a long day of battling against some of the best players in the world it was Daniel Negreanu who came out victorious at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe High Roller event. 

Earlier Thursday Negreanu locked up the World Series of Poker Player of the Year title for the second time since having previously won it in 2004.

Thursday’s victory yielded €725,000, which helped boost his overall earnings to just over $19.5 million.

At the final table Negreanu dueled long and hard with Philip Gruissem but ultimately the German pro was knocked out in third place. In the heads-up match Negreanu was the clear favorite with decades of experience on his poker resume. Negreanu grinded down Nicolau Villa-Lobos before ultimately knocking him out with jacks versus fives. 

“2004 was just such a different time for me,” said Negreanu, recalling his first WSOP POY victory. “This one means a lot more for me than the last one – it was a little more difficult to win. I came here and won it in the very last [tournament]. I love drama!”2013 WSOP Europe €25,000 High Roller – Final Results
