As with the WSOP opener the day before that saw Phil Hellmuth run deep, among the 919 entries for the $1k buy-in Deepstack 8-max were some huge names, and none bigger than Daniel Negreanu.

DNegs was chasing his 7th WSOP bracelet, and soon found himself at a table with his old friend and rival, and all-time leading WSOP winner, the Poker Brat himself…

With a $873,050 prizepool on offer, getting through the money bubble was the first challenge, Negreanu tweeting: ‘The amount of stalling in this $1k WSOP Deepstack on the bubble is next level. Everyone at my table exhausting their time bank every hand. You gotta do what you gotta do I guess...’

With that safely negotiated, it was a long run to the title, but for Negreanu it wasn’t to be, falling in 18th spot after his pre-flop shove with nines came up just short…

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Daniel 'dnegs' Negreanu: 9♦ 9♠
Matthew 'Mendey' Mendez: 10♣ 10♥
Flop: J♣ 6♥ Q♠
Turn: 4♦
River: 3♠

Negreanu may have busted, but there was still a star of the game in the mix as the final table convened, streaming legend Jason 'haderade' Somerville.

Somerville’s run would end in 6th place, pocket tens again the winning hand, this time Louis Lynch the executioner against Somerville’s big slick.

Pennsylvania man Lynch, playing under the nickname PokeThese would soon find himself heads-up against Ryan Ko, aka Kovid19 – but the Californian couldn’t pull back a big chip deficit.
