Poker Hall of Famer (PHoF) Doyle Brunson announced on Twitter this week that he will come out of retirement to play at the 2021 WSOP which runs from Sep 30 to Nov 23 at the Rio in Las Vegas. Now another PHoF has confirmed that he plans to spend a lot of time at this year’s WSOP grinding away to see if he can add to his list of WSOP accolades.
Negreanu left PokerStars and signed up as a GG Poker brand ambassador in 2019 but did not get a chance to represent the brand at the 2020 WSOP since it was cancelled due to COVID-19. This will be the first time that Negreanu will represent GG Poker at a live WSOP poker tournament.
Negreanu To Live In An RV
Daniel Negreanu has made it a practice to show up in his recreation vehicle (RV) and stay outside the Rio while playing at the WSOP. The Canadian poker pro said that he plans to bring his RV once again to the 2021 WSOP but anticipates that it will be a much more pleasant experience in the RV given that the weather will be a lot cooler in October and November rather than June and July when the WSOP is usually held.
Negreanu will turn 47 by the time the WSOP starts and he is very keen to keep grinding during this tournament and see if he can add to his tally of six WSOP bracelets. Staying in an RV, allows him to get away from the WSOP action whenever he wants and not have to travel too far to get some much needed rest.
Negreanu To Produce More Vlogs
The PHoF is going to have a very busy summer as he not only plans to grid at the WSOP but also vlog on a daily basis during the WSOP. Negreanu, who has over half a million subscribers on his YouTube channel, released a short video to inform his subscribers that he has decided to start vlogging again.
He said he was committed to releasing around two videos per week in the lead up to the WSOP and his content would include podcasts, live streaming, blasts from the past and a look at the modern world of live poker. If you like watching poker content on YouTube, then Negreanu’s vlogs are going to be interesting as he has a habit of stirring things up.
High Stake Events On The Cards
Daniel Negreanu sat on top of the Hendon Mob’s All Time Money list for years but lost his place a few years ago as he struggled to register big wins at the table while some of the younger poker pros like Bryn Kenney and Justin Bonomo surpassed him in career prize money. However, Negreanu still sits at the top of Canada’s All Time Money list and is keen on winning some big pots at the 2021 WSOP.
Negreanu focuses mostly on high stakes poker action and hence we know that he is going to take part in the 2021 WSOP Main Event. Tournament organizers have stated that they expect this year’s Main Event to be the biggest Main Event in the history of the tournament. The Main Event has a $10,000 buy-in as usual and if it does become the biggest Main Event in history, it will result in the biggest payout in WSOP history. Negreanu needs to win $11 million to knock Justin Bonomo from the second spot on the All Time Money list.
Negreanu will open his WSOP campaign by playing the $25,000 H.O.R.S.E and thereafter the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. He has also confirmed that he will play the $250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold’em on Nov 18 and the $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em on Nov 21. Both these high roller events are 3 day events.
