Ivey and Negreanu Continue To Try and Win BraceletPublished on 2014-06-19 21:07:00
We are now a little more than halfway through the 2014 World Series of Poker.
One of the stories that people have been closely watching is the ongoing Phil Ivey/Daniel Negreanu vs the World bracelet bet.
Prior to the World Series of Poker getting underway, Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey revealed that they were accepting bets from the general public as to whether or not they would win a bracelet between the two of them this summer.
The minimum bet? $5,000. The maximum bet? $1 million. The odds? Even.
So, if you bet $5,000 against the duo winning at least one bracelet between the two of them this summer and they failed to win at least one event, you would realize a return of $5,000 on your money.
Daniel Negreanu came very, very close to winning a bracelet in the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball event, eventually finishing in second place for $156,674. Negreanu also made deep runs in three other events, finishing 10th twice and once in 18th.
Phil Ivey, on the other hand, has been less successful, cashing in just one event so far ($1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em, 22nd place).
There are roughly 25 bracelet events that are yet to be played, including the $1,000,000 BIG ONE For ONE DROP.
This event will represents the best chance for Ivey and Negreanu to win a bracelet, as the field is going to be capped at 56 players. In addition, a significant portion of the field will consist of casual players including rich businessmen and satellite winners.
Can Ivey or Negreanu win a bracelet over the coming weeks? We'll soon find out.
