Daniel Negreanu - Big SmileDaniel Negreanu has gone deep in Event #5 ($1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em) at the World Series of Poker, as he is currently fourth in chips with 19 players left.

Negreanu currently owns four World Series of Poker bracelets, with his last win coming in 2008. Negreanu's first bracelet was won 14 years ago in a $2,000 Pot Limit Hold'em event.

As mentioned, Negreanu is currently fourth in chips with 19 players left. There are some very good players that also still alive in the event including Bryan Pellegrino, Jonathan Aguiar and James Mackey.

The winner of this event will take home $189,818 and the WSOP bracelet. A win for Negreanu would move him within about $600k of Erik Seidel for the top position on the all-time tournament money list.

Negreanu has already secured the 52nd WSOP cash of his career with this deep run. If Negreanu manages to survive through to the last day of play on Friday, he will have made the 27th WSOP final table of his career as well.

If Negreanu does manage to pull off a win in this event, he would join Gary Berland, Allen Cunningham, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Ted Forrest, Berry Johnston, John Juanda, Jeff Lisandro, Scotty Nguyen and Stu Ungar in the five bracelet club.
