This is a discussion on Daniel Negreanu Picks Hockey Over Poker? within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Daniel Negreanu Picks Hockey Over Poker, Will Miss WSOP Events for Stanley Cup Finals
Did you know....Daniel was a part of the Vegas Golden Knights 'Founding
I am watching the Super High Roller Bowl. It seems that Daniel is letting the hockey game distract him from the poker game. He's not as focused as usual. Could cost him several million dollars, unfortunately.
Pretty class from Daniel-we all have our hobbies though. If i became a multi-millionaire through poker and the during the WSOP the FIFA world cup was showing I'd skip tournaments to watch the socceroos play
I'm sorry but a hockey team in Vegas makes no sense at all.
It is wise for one to educate themselves comprehensively to understand some things. Las Vegas has wanted a Professional Sports Team for a very long time now. Visitors come here to Las Vegas because of the entertainment and let loose lifestyle.
The Knights had an awesome season and have had an awesome fan base since they started playing here. Tickets to the last Stanley Cup game were going for at least $1,000 a piece on stub hub. Playoff Tickets were $250 for high up seats.
When someone comes to Vegas for Vacation, there are so many different things going on and so much to do. Having Hockey and Football (in a couple years) is great for this city. I think that they are going too fast, but Vegas always has.
In addition to the 2.1 billion dollar Raiders Stadium, Caesars is building a $375 million conference center. To top it off, my house has increased in value by 166% in 8 years.
Hopefully after this explains why hockey makes sense in Las Vegas. Just because there isn't ice on the ground outside, doesn't mean you can't play hockey! Las Vegas Loves Hockey! I see it all over every day! We have a Knights Banner outside my workplace!!
re: Poker & Daniel Negreanu Picks Hockey Over Poker?
I don' t know how much of his personal money he invested in the team. But it is just that, an investment. When he enters into a WSOP event, he is investing and hoping for a return.
For a first year team to make it as far as they did, yeah, I'd watch my investment too. But watching his vlogs, he enjoyed the hockey games and worked his "day job" (poker) around them. And heck, he made 5-years of my pay in Bobby's Room the one night.
Not too shabby for a guy that moved to Vegas on a dream all those years ago.
Hopefully with last nights bag for him and the hockey season officially over, he can cash a few games. I do think he was distracted, but what's a guy to do when he has all that going for him.
