WSOP Event #3: No luck for Naujoks, Negreanu flying
Sandra Naujoks proved her poker prowess by winning her home EPT in Dortmund back in March, a spectacular performance that also happened to net her $1.3 million. So what's a girl to do with all that money? Head to Vegas and try and make some more, obviously. But her mission stuttered soon after it started today when she busted from the $1,500 Omaha Hi/Low 8 or Better event.
The Team PokerStars Germany Pro had dwindled down to just a few hundred chips from her 4,500 starting stack, and lost those on the first hand after moving from the table she had been sharing with Chad Brown for nearly four one-hour levels.
Having watched her play in Dortmund, it's a fair bet she'll be back on the money-making trail here at the WSOP very soon.
Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein and Brown are faring much better. Negreanu has eased up to 12,500, Brown is on 11,000 and Greenstein is on about 7,000.
