Negreanu captures third WSOP Player of the Year

Daniel Negreanu, quite possibly the most famous name in the poker world today, dominated headlines during the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe at King's Casino. Negreanu made history by becoming the first person to win WSOP Player-of-the-Year honors for the third time. Since the award’s inception in 2004, no other player has even won it twice.

At the conclusion of WSOP in Las Vegas in July, Negreanu was in third place, behind Robert Campbell and defending Player of the Year Shaun Deeb. But after an additional seven in-the-money finishes at WSOP, Negreanu took the lead and finalized his historic accomplishment. Campbell would finish runner-up, and Deeb finished in third place.

Greece was the only other country with two winners, including Alexandros Kolonias’s victory in the Main Event. In all, 13 different countries were represented among the 15 winners at the 2019 WSOP Europe.

There three previous bracelet winners who added more hardware to their trophy cases: Dash Dudley (Event #2), Asi Moshe (Event #9) and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, who won the Colossus event on the final day of the series.

The schedule for next year’s WSOP Europe will be released sometime in the spring.
