Each week, we’ll highlight a “Hand(s) of the Week,” which very well could include bad beats, lucky suck outs, and game-changing swings.
In the first week of the 2020 WSOP online series on WSOP.com, Event #2: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed Deepstack, 919 entrants created an $873,050 prize pool. Up top was a gold bracelet and a $168,586 top prize, so when Daniel “DNegs” Negreanu made a deep run, the poker world got excited.
His journey proved to be a rollercoaster ride, first a big high followed by a quick low. Combined, the two hands made for a memorable highlight.

Even Kid Poker Gets Lucky
In Level 32 (25,000/50,000/5,000), Negreanu was short and moved all in under the gun for 475,438. Action folded all the way around to Mark “victb” Ioli, who called from the big blind.

Mark “victb” Ioli:
The six-time bracelet winner was in dire straits, but he got lucky when the flop paired his jack. The turn gave Ioli a Broadway draw but he missed when the bricked on the river.
The hand not only showed that even the world’s best poker players get lucky from time to time, but also put the six-time bracelet winner over the seven-figure mark in chips and gave him a real shot at his seventh piece of gold hardware.
Even Kid Poker Gets Coolered
Unfortunately for Negreanu, the poker gods giveth and the poker gods taketh. One level later with the blinds at 30,000/60,000/6,000, Negreanu open-jammed under the gun for 763,876 and got isolation from Matthew “Mendey” Mendez who came over the top for 2,002,612 from the small blind.

Both players held made hands but Mendez held the better one. Negreanu couldn’t find a set with the runout, and just like that his tournament ended in 18th place for $5,849.
