It was deja vu all over again for Daniel Negreanu, capturing his fourth WSOP bracelet in the very same event where he won his third back in 2004. Negreanu arrived at this final table as far and away the most experienced and decorated player among the nine, and proved to everyone here today why he deserves to be called one of the world's best all-around players.

Negreanu rushed into the crowd after the final card was dealt, high-fiving his friends and embracing his mother, who still lovingly prepares her son vegan meals for lunch every day of the series.

"Me-1, Ivey-0!" cried Negreanu as he hoisted his new piece of jewelry in the air. The two poker legends have a standing bet during this year's WSOP in which one pays the other $200,000 for each bracelet won. That will effectively double Negreanu's prize money from this victory.

As Negreanu sat back down at the table for his winner's photo behind his wall of chips and his winning {9-Spades} {5-Hearts}, he paused for a moment to dig his cell phone out of his pocket.

"Hang on, I've got to text Ivey!" he said with a sly smile.

Congratulations to Daniel Negreanu on his fourth World Series of Poker bracelet!
