There is no doubting the poker tournament talent of Daniel Negreanu. The six-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) champion has almost $46 million in live tournament winnings for a start. Negreanu loves nothing more than pitting his wits against the best in the business in high roller events.
The popular Canadian continued his incredible run in high roller events with a victory in a $15,300 High Roller at the Wynn Millions. Forty players bought in and created a $600,000 prize pools that the top six finishers shared.
Spanish professional poker player Sergio Aido burst the money bubble when he busted in seventh place. Ali Imsirovic crashed out in sixth-place for $30,000. Imsirovic was a short stack on the bubble but doubled twice to give himsef every chance of victory. He came unstuck after raising to 60,000 with Kh-Kd and calling off the 355,000 chips he had behind when Negreanu three-bet all-in. Negreanu showed Ac-Ks and spiked an ace on the Ah-8d-Td-3s-6h board.
Sean Winter fell soon after and banked $48,000. Winter’s last 5,000 chips went into the middle on a 4h-Td-7h flop holding Qd-5s. However, Sergi Reixach held As-Ac, which held to reduce the player count further.
Lin Leads But Negreanu Lurking
Ren Lin soared into the lead after busting Brock Wilson in fourth for $66,000. Lin opened in the small blind with 7h-7s and Wilson called all-in for 145,000 with Tc-5c. The sevens held as the five community cards ran 9d-3d-4h-6c-Ah.
Third place and $96,000 went to Lin despite winning Wilson’s stack. Negreanu min-raised to 100,000 with 9h-9d and called when Lin three-bet shoved with Ad-6d for 820,000. The 2c-8d-8h flop kept the Canadian ahead, and Lin busted after the Jh turn and 2d river.
That hand gave Negreanu a 2,570,000 to 1,430,000 lead over Reixach going into heads-up. Reixach never got going in the one-on-one encounter and called off his 670,000 stack with 4c-4h when Negreanu set him all-in with 9h-8s. The 9c-2s-3h-5d-Kh board busted Reixach in second place for $144,000 and awarded “Kid Poker” the $216,000 top prize.

Kid Poker’s Recent High Roller Results
Negreanu endured a barren spell, by his lofty standards, in high roller tournaments until enjoying a confidence-boosting victory in November 2021. He took down a $50,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2021 PokerGO Cup and walked away with $700,000.
The win reinvigorated Negreanu and his last ten high roller results are most impressive. Those ten scores tip the scales at $1,754,155 and include a brace of third-place finishes in WSOP events.
He finished third in the $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller for $519,764. Negreanu followed that up with the same finish in the $50,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event for an additional $519,764. It is safe to say “DNegs” is back on the top on the top of his game.
