Daniel Negreanu has had a disappointing 2022 World Sequence of Poker, and that didn’t substitute on Day 1c of the Valuable Occasion, but he did salvage an staunch luck enchantment from one player on the rail, so there is that.
A healthful second took plan Tuesday evening inner Bally’s when Arash Shahi, a fellow Canadian from Toronto, approached the GGPoker ambassador who became seated at his table throughout the $10,000 steal-in world championship tournament.
Will the Karma Work?
Shahi suggested Negreanu that he owed the six-time WSOP bracelet winner a previous debt from three years prior. In 2019, the two poker gamers competed in the same match, a $1,500 restrict retain’em tournament at the World Sequence of Poker.
All through that tournament, Shahi wanted to procure a rub down at the table but realized he didn’t bear any money on him. Negreanu paid for the rub down and Shahi had promised to pay him aid.
Later in the day, Shahi went to the ATM to procure $100 to provide the Poker Hall of Famer but realized he’d already left. On Tuesday, he told Negreanu the memoir, gave him a $100 bill, and left him a conceal that read, “Here goes to be lucky.”
Unfortunately, for “DNegs,” the debt fee didn’t elevate him any appropriate karma. On the time of publishing, with one stage closing on Day 1c, he became correct down to spherical a measly 1,000 chips, a long way underneath his 60,000-chip starting up stack. That mentioned, anything can occur in match poker, as we realized final year when the eventual champion, Koray Aldemir gained it despite ending Day 1 with honest 35,000 in chips. Then again, Negreanu barely literally wants to tug off the aged chip and a chair comeback.
For Negreanu, a deep move in the Valuable Occasion would be honest what the physician ordered, wrapping up an otherwise ho-hum summer season for the perennial WSOP Participant of the Year candidate. In whole, he has honest six small cashes in are residing bracelet events, and has but to reach a final table.
Must he bust searching the money in the Valuable Occasion, there are restful 17 bracelet events closing. Even supposing he is seemingly out of Participant of the Year contention, he would possibly per chance perchance restful salvage his collection. As it stands, he is down bigger than $1 million for the summer season, half of of which came in Occasion #50: $250,000 Excessive Roller No-Restrict Preserve’em where he fired two bullets and didn’t money.
