Negreanu Bubbles; 10 Remain in Event #15: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship


Day 2 of Event #15: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship, a tournament that attracted 128 players and created a prize pool of $1,203,200, began with 64 players still in contention for the $318,857 first-place prize. By the end of the night, just 10 would remain with Jason Koon and his stack of 890,000 leading the way.

With only 18 players slated to get paid, 46 had to leave empty handed. Among them were Mike Leah, Antonio Esfandiari, Scott Seiver, Bryn Kenney, Alexander Kostritsyn, David Benyamine, Andrew Lichtenberger, and Daniel Negreanu, who actually finished in 19th place as the bubble boy.

According to updates from the event, it happened when Negreanu raised to 28,000 from middle position and left just 1,000 back. Dario Sammartino then three-bet from the big blind and Negreanu called off with the {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, which was racing against his Italian foe's {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. The board ran out a clean {4-Spades}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}, and Negreanu was sent to the rail.

Among those to finish in the money were Shane Douglas (18th - $17,038), Michael Ferrell (17th - $17,037), Connor Drinan (16th - $17,037), Matt Waxman (15th - $17,229), Todd Brunson (14th - $17,229), Mark Fisher (13th - $17,229), Josh Arieh (12th - $22,288), and David Peters (11th - $22,288).

The final 10 players will return at 2:00 p.m. local time on Saturday to play down to a winner, who will ultimately take home $318,857.
