Big Names, Big Talk and Big Stacks as Negreanu Shines in $10k H.O.R.S.E.

It would appear that if you want to run well in the WSOP you should announce some important information to the poker world first – at least it seems to have worked for Doyle Brunson and Daniel Negreanu this week…

By: Andrew Burnett



Brunson went public with plans to retire and immediately carved out a superb 6th spot in the $10,000 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship with Negreanu following suit last night, leading for a long time and finishing high up the chip counts after day one of the $10k H.O.R.S.E. following his Masterclass announcement



Last year’s H.O.R.S.E. Championship, which features five different games: Limit Hold'em, Omaha hi-lo, Razz, Seven-card Stud and Seven-card Stud hi-lo saw 150 entries and was won by David Bach, the champion coming back to defend his title and recovering from a dodgy start…



…with this year’s numbers looking good just a few hours in…



…and a number of big names deciding to have a go at the $10k event, including Shaun Deeb, David Benyamine, Jeff Lisandro, 2016 champ Jason Mercier and the irrepressible Mike Sexton



With registration open until day two meaning the prizefund is still unknown, it’s more a case of jockeying for a decent stack to make day two a bit more comfortable.
