Le and Keijzer played in the heads-up
The final day started with only five players left, and PLO specialist Ronald Keijzer was in the lead, and Le was in second position. Damjan Radanov started with a short stack, and soon went all-in with A-Q-9-7, when there were J-10-6-A on the board. Radanov was up against a set of Daniel Negreanu ‘s jacks (A-J-J-6). Radanov had straight and flush draws, but he failed to complete any of the combinations. For the fifth place, the American received 61,600 USD.
Despite the previous knockout, Negreanu himself was eliminated next. The Super High Roller Bowl champion lost a big hand to the owner of the bracelet, Dylan Weisman, left with several blinds. After that, Negreanu struggled a little more, but eventually lost to Keijzer. There was a reward of 77,000 USD for the fourth place.
Now Negreanu’s tournament earnings are almost 49.9 million USD, which is the third highest result among all players in the history of the game. Only Justin Bonomo (62,316,371 USD) and Bryn Kenney (57,830,029 USD) earned more.
Among the three remaining players, Weisman had the shortest stack. With the middle pair, the player could not overcome Le’s set and went home. His reward was 100,100 USD.
