Canadian poker professional Daniel Negreanu who's won five World group of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and more than $18 million in tournament cashes throughout his illustrious poker profession is devoid of a year that is great far at WSOP. At minimum, not in accordance with his very own tournament tracking app, which shows him down $226,000 after barreling through 31 events already at this year's gathering. The figure is 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 most players.
Can't Win for Losing
The downswing is because, inspite of the five cashes ( which have garnered him $45,088 so far), he's poured $271,111 to the 31 occasions (with the priciest being the One Drop High Rollers No limitation Hold'em tournament that benefits charity and that paid winner Tony Gregg a healthy $4,830,619 for first. This past year's $18 million + winner, Antonio Esfandiari, only took fourth this year, sufficient reason for a buy-in that was almost 1/10th of this past year's $1 million, he made down by having a 'paltry' $1,433,438 for this season's fourth place finish. Yes, the rich get richer).
Before you lose any rest over Negreanu's downward trend, however, think about this: he's doing pretty much over all in tournaments up to now in 2010. Back in April, he took down WSOP Australia for $1,087,160,
