Nick Jivkov Wins $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em at 2012 World Series of Poker
Daniel Negreanu Falls Short of Fifth Bracelet
Daniel Negreanu’s failure in capturing his fifth World Series of Poker bracelet made it possible for Nick Jivkov to capture his first. The 34-year-old finished off the 639-player field in Event No. 5 ($1,500 pot-limit hold’em) on Friday night.
Jivkov, also a winner on the WSOP Circuit, came into the final with about $200,000 in lifetime tournament earnings, and nearly doubled that amount by capturing the bracelet. He also picked up 840 points in the Player of the Year race.
With a fourth-place finish, Vedes snagged 420 points, which sends him to 27th in the standings on the back of his win at the 2012 World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown earlier this year.
Negreanu finished in fifth place, earning 350 POY points. This was Negreanu’s fifth final table of the year, moving him into 17th place in the overall standings with 1,770 points and year-to-date earnings of $1,522,136.
