Daniel Negreanu decided to come back to high stakes world this year and faced known to every Russian problem: those players “with connections” have more rights than others. Love to the private high stakes games came from Macao and took over all the popular rooms in Las Vegas.
Last year Daniel hasn’t played a single hand at live cash tables. In the beginning of the year the Canadian set a goal: to play at least 200 hours and year at least $250k.
The first playing session of mixed games took place in Aria, where Negreanu was invited personally. Blinds were $300-$600 with $600 antes. There were quite strange exemplars of the game besides traditional poker formats.
One of them is called PLO Flip. Each player contributes $10k, gets dealt four cards and they deal the board cards. The best hand wins. As easy as a pie, no skill involved.
Two significant tournaments have ended in the Las-Vegas – WPT: Five Diamond World Poker Classic and Alpha8. There were millions of dollars at stake at both tournaments and the number of the distinguished players went beyond the limit.
Perhaps we will start from $10,400 WPT Five Diamond. The most interesting six-day tournament would be most likely considered as High Roller tournament on the European land, but bets are always higher in Vegas.
Almost 600 people (586 to be exact) anted the required buy-in – that’s a new record! It has beaten the result from the previous year for approximately 150 buy-ins, where 449 registrations took place.
