Daniel Negreanu Down $226K in World Series of Poker So Far
Canadian poker pro Daniel Negreanu who’s won five World variety of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and more than $18 million in tournament cashes throughout his illustrious poker job is not having a great 12 months therefore far at WSOP. At least, not based on his own tournament tracking software, which shows him down $226,000 after barreling through 31 events already at this year’s gathering. The figure was at ‘just’ $176K, until he busted the $50,000 buy-in Poker Players Championship in 102nd place this week. And that’s despite five cashes, which will certainly be impressive for many players.
Can’t Win for Losing
The downswing is basically because, inspite of the five cashes ( which may have garnered him $45,088 to date), he’s poured $271,111 in to the 31 occasions (with the priciest being the One Drop High Rollers No restriction Hold’em tournament that benefits charity and that paid champion Tony Gregg a healthy $4,830,619 for first. This past year’s $18 million + winner, Antonio Esfandiari, only took fourth this year, and with a buy-in which was almost 1/10th of this past year’s $1 million, he made off by having a ‘paltry’ $1,433,438 for this season’s fourth place finish. Yes, the rich get richer).
Before you lose any sleep over Negreanu’s downward trend, however, think about this: he’s doing pretty well over all in tournaments to date this season. Back in April, he took straight down WSOP Australia for $1,087,160,
