EPT10 Barcelona: Tilt tackled, it's a new start for Negreanu

An interesting side story to the hubbub surrounding Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu's first elimination from the €10,000+€300 High Roller yesterday was how he stepped away for several hours, then re-entered the event after dinner after having calmed down following what had been a fiery exit.

Negreanu managed to end Day 1 with below average chips (around the starting stack), but has had a good start so far on Day 2 to give himself a chance at a deeper run in the event.

During a break this afternoon Negreanu spoke with Sarah Grant about dealing with tilt -- both in the particular instance of yesterday and in general -- a topic with which every player who is passionate about the game is well familiar.
