The 2022 WSOP wasn’t good for the Canadian player, he lost over a million dollars and still injured his hand in an alleged shooting in Las Vegas
Daniel Negreanu is one of the best poker players in the world. With six bracelets and over $42 million in in-person earnings over his career, “Kid Poker” had a WSOP to forget. In the main mental sport competition this season, he suffered a financial loss of more than $1 million and still left with a badly injured hand due to suspected shootings in Las Vegas.
The hand injury was revealed on the player’s social media with the caption: “This is how my WSOP ends”. Last Saturday (16), the suspicion of a shooting in the vicinity of Ballys & Paris Casinos, in Las Vegas, sowed panic and turmoil among the players who were in the last straight lines of the World Cup tournaments of Poker. The Canadian hasn’t revealed how the serious injury happened, but it is suspected that he fell during the race.
The “wound” in Negreanu’s pocket often happened due to his performance in the Super High Roller with a buy-in of US$250,000, where he made two entries, ended up being eliminated in a bad very hard beat and left the attribution area aside dispute. On this occasion, he again leaned heavily and threw down his cell phone where he recorded movements with whatever was on the wall, causing a scene that is hard to see for those who love him.
Through the vlogs he publishes on youtube, Negreanu revealed that he had entered the money zone twelve times during these WSOP, but that was not enough to cover the financial hole. “We had a year of losses, mainly due to the High Rollers, but there are no guarantees, I tried my best., he said. The Canadian’s best result this year in the series was in the #8 online event where he received $88,081.
