After a huge run at the €10,300 buy-in EPT Barcelona High Roller Daniel Negreanu has finishing yet another tournament in 2nd place. Despite a massive 8-1 chip lead when heads up play began, the Canadian superstar was defeated by Austria’s Thomas Muhlocker. The final hand saw Kid Poker run AQ into Muhlocker’s AK, and a K on the flop sealed the deal. Negreanu had dominated for most of the final table, using his stack to punish players like November Niner David Benefield and former WSOP Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel.

Muhlocker took home €390,000 for first place while Negreanu received €263,800. The winnings will push Negreanu into first place on the Global Poker Index of 2013. The High Roller event had 180 entries (138 players and 42 re-entries).
