Worth noting as well is the fact that entering the final day of the last WSOP Europe event, Deeb was under the impression that he would need to finish at least fifth in the event to surpass Negreanu and win his second straight WSOP POY. Deeb was third in chips with 11 players left to start the day, and unfortunately for him was eliminated early in 11th place.

One of the stranger stories of the year had to do with the WSOP Player of the Year honor, and how it was won by one player, and then another.
The World Series of Poker officially corrected the WSOP POY points, moving Daniel Negreanu down to third and giving the title to Robert Campbell.
Campbell’s tournament ended in 149th place, leaving the defending champion, Deeb, as the only player capable of stopping Negreanu from making history while at the same time making history (nobody had ever successfully defended a WSOP POY crown). Players kept hitting the rail hard. The number of tables kept dwindling until there were two left.
Somuchpoker: Let’s talk first about the most sensitive subject, the WSOP POY mistake. It was a really strong battle during the final week in Rozvadov and you learned only after landing in the US that you had won the title.

Daniel Negreanu’s game and approach are tailor-made for the World Series of Poker, and for the last 17 years he’s been a constant and consistently successful on one of poker’s greatest stages. It started in 1998, when Negreanu won a bracelet in his very first WSOP cash, and it hasn’t stopped through two WSOP Player of the Year campaigns and at least a half-dozen of the best individual.
