The 2022 World Cup has been dominated for two weeks by two Daniels, one of whom is not surprisingly Negreanu.
Daniel Zackthe only double bracelet winner this summer, and Daniel Weinman is the top two in the current WSOP Player of the Year rankings. Daniel Negreanua multi-year POY candidate and two-time winner (2004 and 2013), is still trying to take a break and hit the heater before it is too late to return.
As DNegs proved last fall, it never came out. After a slow start to the 2021 WSOP, GGPoker’s ambassador ended the series briskly, finishing third in a row, placing him third after the champion. Josh Arieh and Phil Hellmuth.
Negreanu did not win the title of player of the year last fall, but his late rise showed that even with three small sums of money in 2022, he cannot be expected to draw.
Zack, Weinman has been unstoppable
On Tuesday night, Zack exited the eight-hour heads-up battle as the winner David Funkhouser in Event # 40: $ 10,000 Stud Hi-Lo Championship. In doing so, he won $ 324,174 and topped the WSOP Player of the Year standings with 2,981 points.
The victory was Zack’s second in a series and third in his career. He also took it down Event # 15: $ 10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship $ 440,757, exceeding Dustin Dirksen another marathon heads-up match.
Zack, once normal Live at the Bike who has become an eternal candidate for POY in recent years, will have six money and three final tables this summer. It could be the year he finally gets over the hunch, especially if he continues at his current pace.
If Zack doesn’t win Player of the Year, it may be Weinman, who has also started the 53rd Annual World Series of Poker. Bracelet with victory Event # 30: $ 1000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handedsecond place and eight more money, he has collected 2521 points in the POY hunt, which is a good second place.
Deeb, Ivey Lurking
Although Negreanu has not tried the heater yet, his teammate is the best player of the year Shaun Deeb, is a good distance. The five-time bracelet winner is in eighth place with 1824 points, perhaps simply taking the time to make a serious push to win his second POY title.
Another big name, Phil Ivey, is back at the WSOP for the first time since 2019 and has started strongly. The 10-time WSOP champion won almost his 11th bracelet on Monday night before losing heads-up Alexei Ponakov in Event # 42: $ 100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em. He will take part in Wednesday’s action with 1680 points, which is the 10th place.
Jake Schindleraccused of poker cheating, fell back a little later to run the race one week ago. He is still in good competition with 1842 points, but he has not won any money in the last seven days.
Like Josh Ariehdefending title, he is also entitled, currently holding 1594 points firmly in 12th place.
