"Is that a World Series bracelet?"
Daniel Negreanu was asking Brian Meinders the question. Meinders is currently sitting across from Negreanu at a table in the Red section. He replied confirming that it indeed was, and when Negreanu asked him which event he had won, Meinders explained it from just last week at Event 25, the $1,500 no-limit shootout. The win marked Meinders first bracelet, following a runner-up in this very event in 2010.
"Good job," said Negreanu. The compliment came amid a bit of a rush for Meinders, as he raised several hands in a row and won several pots to push his stack up close to 20,000.
That's a bit more than Negreanu has at the moment. Negreanu still has the lead on Meinders as far as bracelets go, however, with four, including two in limit hold'em events.
