It’s going to be another busy summer for Daniel Negreanu as he embarks on a new journey towards clinching his seventh gold bracelet. The GGPoker ambassador recently shared with his fans and followers on social media what his schedule for the upcoming World Series of Poker (WSOP) would look like.
Negreanu’s WSOP performance is something the poker community always looks forward to each year. The Poker Hall of Famer last won a WSOP event back in 2013 and since then he’s been consistently on the hunt for another victory in the world’s most prestigious and longest-running poker festival.
Negreanu To Focus on High Rollers
Negreanu’s personal WSOP schedule includes 49 bracelet events, 10 of that are high rollers, coinciding with his plan to focus more on high-stakes tournaments this year.
Negreanu will kick things off with the $100K High Roller Bounty on May 31. He will also play in the $250K Super High Roller scheduled for June 23 and one of his favorite WSOP tournaments, the $50K Poker Players Championship.
We will also see him taking part in more than a dozen $10K tournaments, including the Dealer’s Choice Championship, Short Deck No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship, the Main Event, and multiple mixed games.
Daniel Negreanu Could Spend Over $1M at 2022 WSOP
The bulk of Negreanu’s schedule is comprised of events with buy-ins of less than $10K, such as the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball, $1,500 Shootout No-Limit Hold’em, $1,500 H.O.R.S.E., $2,500 Mixed Big Bet Event, $1,500 Razz, and $5,000 Super Turbo No-Limit Hold’em. The GGPoker ambassador will also participate in the $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty.
Most of the events Negreanu will be playing this year are No-Limit Hold’em and mixed games. He will skip some WSOP signature events like the Colossus, Monster Stack, and Millionaire Maker.
Adding up all the buy-ins across the 49 events on his schedule, Negreanu is set to around $930,000 in entry fees at the 53rd WSOP. That figure could go well beyond the $1 million mark if re-entries are factored in.
Announcing his schedule, Negreanu was all praises to the WSOP team for solving the “puzzle” and coming up with a schedule that caters to players of all levels.
2022 Could Be Negreanu’s Year
Despite failing to win a bracelet last year, Negreanu ended his 2021 WSOP bid on a high note, finishing in the top 10 at seven events, and scoring 18 cashes throughout the fall series for a total profit of around $400K.
As the festival was about to end, Negreanu came close to winning a bracelet, finishing 3rd in two of the final events. That impressive performance placed him in 3rd place in the WSOP Player of the Year (POY) leaderboard. Negreanu topped the race back in 2004 and 2013, making him the only player in history to win the WSOP POY title twice.
His 2021 WSOP earnings make up the majority of his profit throughout the year, with his final tally showing a profit of almost $600K. 2021 was also a momentous year for the GGPoker ambassador as he was finally able to win a championship title after eight long years. That victory came in the PokerGO Cup $50K High Roller.
A bracelet win has remained evasive for the Negreanu for the last nine years or so and it would be interesting to see if he finally makes it this year.
The 2022 WSOP will run from May 31 to July 20 at its new home, Bally’s and Paris on the Las Vegas Strip, with a total of 88 gold bracelets up for grabs.
