Australian poker superstar Daniel Negreanu has crashed out of event 47 at the World Series of Poker (WSOP).
The card ace was sent packing on day one of the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Split-8 or Better event and will be forced to wait for a 2012 bracelet.
However, while the country's biggest poker star failed, a number of others are riding high on the chip leader board.
Roch Cousineau currently sits in second place on the leader board with 95,500 chips, while Brazil's Alex Gomes tops the chart with 143,300 chips.
Elsewhere on the leader board, Nicholas Verkaik of Canada is on 71,600 chips in eighth place, while Nital Jethalal in ninth place with 65,000.
The UK's James Dempsey (77,000), Andy Frankenberger (76,000), Mark Herm (75,000) and Joe Tehan (73,600)
Negreanu will now be hoping for a solid performance in the Big One For One Drop, which will see one lucky player scoop a check for $17 million.
