No selfie stick was harmed this time, but Daniel Negreanu had another frustrating exit from a poker tournament on Monday afternoon. The GGPoker ambassador’s aces were cracked by Seth Davies‘ jacks on the stone-bubble of Poker Masters Event #10: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em.

Entering the final table, the six-time WSOP bracelet winner was the short stack with seven players remaining. He had around 16 big blinds at the start of Day 2, which aired on PokerGO. About 30 minutes into the session, he found a golden opportunity to double up and get back into contention for the $666,000 first place prize.

With the blinds at 15,000/25,000 and a 25,000 big blind ante, Davies raised it up to 60,000 with J-J, and then Negreanu moved all in with A-A for 275,000 before being snap-called by the larger stack.

The flop came out 9-7-J, giving Davies a set and leaving his opponent drawing to just two outs. When the turn and river appeared, which was K-5 changed nothing, Negreanu was out in seventh place, right on the bubble.

For Negreanu, the bad beat was just another of many he’s suffered the past few months. During the 2022 World Series of Poker, the perennial Player of the Year contender couldn’t ever seem to get anything going. He’d go on to lose $1.1 million for the series, nearly half of it coming in the $250,000 Super High Roller, in which he blasted through two bullets.

“You just have to have resiliency to do this for a living,” Negreanu said in his Monday post-game interview on PokerGO. “Luckily, for me, I’m in a financial position where I can fade kind of swings like this and, you know, it’s not about the money for me. But it’s painful to love what you do and to play a winning game and to keep losing, and then feel like you’re just sort of hopeless.”
