Negreanu’s WSOP daily vlogs have been ever-present since the Canadian started producing them in 2017. In 2019, Negreanu published 50 daily vlogs documenting his WSOP grind.
This year, with no WSOP in Las Vegas during the summer, Negreanu has revealed his WSOP plans for the first time.
“Obviously because of COVID we’re not at the Rio grinding every day,” said Negreanu. “Now that the WSOP has released the schedule, we do have plans to play now.
“It starts on July 1st on WSOP.com for the first month, and then from the 19th GGPoker will be running the international series for all of those of you who are not in the United States.”
Negreanu explained how he will be splitting his WSOP grind between playing on WSOP.com from his home in Las Vegas and later on GGPoker from Mexico.
“I’m going to be playing on WSOP.com first from home, and then my wife and I are going to fly over to Mexico; we’ve rented a house, got a nice spot on the beach and we’ll do the grind there. It’s only one event per day, so it’s not all that taxing and you get to play from the luxury of your home.”
As for the vlogs, Negreanu announced that they wouldn’t be daily vlogs like in the past, with viewers able to expect “one or two” a week, recapping how Negreanu is doing during the WSOP Online as well as including hand reviews.
Playing in Online Private Games
Negreanu explained that during lockdown, both he and wife Amanda Leatherman had never left the house. However, that doesn’t mean Negreanu, who has over $42 million in lifetime earnings, has been bored.
In the video we saw him in the pool, the gym, working on his golf not only on his own personal putting green but in a state-of-the-art golf simulator and, of course, watching ice hockey.
“I’ve been playing a lot of online poker in a couple of private games,” said Negreanu. “Lot of mixed games; playing an 11-game mix. That’s been fun and a good way to keep me sharp.”
Whilst walking on a treadmill – in the vlog says he aims for 10,000 steps a day – and playing online poker, Negreanu admitted to playing in private home games with some massive names in poker.
