John Juanda, Daniel Negreanu Lead WSOPE Main Event Final Table
The WSOPE Main Event final table is stacked. Sort of. Better than most final tables recently at least.
Kicking it 2004 old school style, John Juanda, who if he was Spanish would be named Juan Johanda, is big stacked at 1,349,000. Continuing his huge year, Daniel Negreanu is third overall with 1,002,000. And in the middle of the pack is ex-Crew member Scott Fischman with 732,000.
Negreanu will be going for his fifth bracelet overall and second this year. Juanda is gunning for his fourth overall and first since 2003.
A victory would put Negreanu just shy of Jamie Gold as poker's all-time tournament money winner.
Bunch of friends and family (from other countries) round out the rest.
