Daniel Negreanu made the official final table of Event #8: €25,600 High Roller at the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe on Thursday. According to the, that feat earned Negreanu enough points to give him the coveted 2013 WSOP Player of the Year award.

In 2004 the Canadian pro made five final tables and won a gold bracelet to win the WSOP POY and with his latest triumph, Negreanu has the distinction of being the first two-time WSOP POY winner.

Negreanu recorded 10 cashes in WSOP events in 2013 and won his fifth-career bracelet in the WSOP Asia-Pacific Main Event:

WSOP APAC: A$2,200 Mixed Event4th$17,096

Negreanu was forced to sweat competition from several players for the award. The first being Matthew Ashton who won his first career bracelet in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship ($1,774,089) and played at three other final tables during the summer's biggest poker festival. The second being November Niner Marc McLaughlin who was right in the race to win the award also, but busted on the bubble of the high roller event where he needed to earn a top-two finish.

"I love things like these," said Negreanu on Day 3 of Event #8. "Points. Stats. All of it."

Kid Poker is playing for his sixth bracelet at the final table of the High Roller now. Look for a comment from him once he's available to news media.
