WSOP 2015: Negreanu leads Team Pro to Day 5

When it began a week ago, 6,420 people thought they could make it to the final table of the 2015 WSOP Main Event. Now, only 237 people remain. Among them sits arguably the most popular poker player in the world, Daniel Negreanu.

Sitting with 1,335,000 in chips, Negreanu is poised to post his best WSOP Main Event finish since 2012.

Last year's top finishing Team Pro, Matthias De Meulder is not far behind with 1,272,000. Meanwhile, PokerStars' first Team India Pro, Aditya Agarwal, will advance to Day 5 with 958,000. Hanging on with a still-payable stack sits Jake Cody with 764,000.
