Daniel Negreanu Ready For WSOP
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) schedule has finally been released for the fall series! This has fans of the game in a frenzy trying to figure out how to attend the event. Las Vegas will likely find itself buzzing by September as professional and amateur players flock to the city to see who will walk away from this year’s event with gold. This year’s tournament is particularly exciting given that for so much of last year, none of us were able to witness the game in person due to the restrictions put in place as a result of the global health crisis.
To make matters even more exciting, this week, Poker pro Daniel Negreanu announced that he would be returning to the WSOP this year. When speaking with the media, the player expressed his excitement at being able to participate, especially because the fall temperatures are a lot more welcoming in Las Vegas than any other season.
Can Negreanu Win?
Now that Negreanu has confirmed that he will be competing in the tournament, many are speculating about whether or not he will actually be able to take the win. The odds are currently saying that he might just cash out during the event. This comes as no surprise, especially considering that he has cashed out at least once every year during the WSOP since as far back as 1998.
In 2019, Negreanu made his most cash outs ever, when he earned 23 payouts and reached a grand total of five final tables. In 2013, he cashed out 10 times, and in 2017, 11 times. To date, the player has an impressive six WSOP bracelets, although many are saying that he is long overdue to win his seventh.
A GGPoker Ambassador
In November 2019, Negreanu signed a deal with GGPoker. However, due to the fact that there was no WSOP last year, this year’s event will mark the first one in which he participates as a GGPoker Ambassador. The player has said that this year’s event is filled with things that he is excited about. This year, players will note that there are more mixed games with high buy-ins than in previous years. These games include the $50,000 Poker Players Championship and a $25,000 H.O.R.S.E. event.
Negreanu also noted that the WSOP schedule includes the GGPoker Flip & Go event. This is a new concept that the company debuted within this year. This live online game will provide players with a new and exciting option.
