International Poker Update

By Scott Carlson, Rakeback.com Staff Reporter

Poker Pro Daniel NegreanuThe recent conclusion of the WSOP Circuit at Horseshoe Hammond was just the first of four events to conclude in the upcoming few days. The Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) recently wrapped their main event and the European Poker Tour (EPT) and World Poker Tour (WPT) are working their way to a conclusion within the next few days.

It’s deja vu all over again for Danny ‘Brotha D’ Leaoasavaii who took down the ANZPT Darwin Main Event for $57,000 AUD. Last month Brotha D won the APPT Auckland Main Event. Leaoasavaii defeated a relatively tough field which included the who’s who of Australian poker. Notable players who cashed included Chris ‘pokerdomeAA’ Levick (4th), Billy ‘The Croc’ Argyros (7th) and Team PokerStars Pro Tony Hachem (10th).

Day three of the WPT Foxwoods World Poker Finals is currently underway as they get close to the money bubble. At press time there were 54 players remaining with the top 25 being paid. They will be battling it out for the $548,752 first place prize. Notables still in the event include current chip leader and Full Tilt Pro Gavin Smith, Josh Arieh, Brock Parker, DoylesRoom Pro Hoyt Corkins and team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein. The televised final table will occur on Tuesday, November 2nd.

The EPT Vienna has reached a final table. Coming back on Sunday for the final table will be two Team PokerStars Pros which include Canadian Daniel Negreanu and Czech Martin Hruby. Negreanu will enter the final table with the chip lead and a shot at history. If Negreanu goes on to win the event and the €700,000 first place prize he will take over the lead in the all-time poker tournament money list. First place on the list currently belongs to Full Tilt Pro Phil Ivey with $13,642,275 in career tournament winnings. Negreanu would also become just the third player in history to win the poker version of the “Triple Crown” which includes the EPT, WPT and a WSOP bracelet.
