Daniel Negreanu Ends 2023 WSOP With a Loss of -$742,807 19 Jul

As the curtains close on the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP), we take a moment to reflect on what has been an extraordinarily successful and record-breaking series. Daniel Weinman, who etched his name into poker history by clinching a staggering $12,100,000 in the Main Event, was undoubtedly a series highlight.

While Weinman was celebrating his victory, one of poker’s biggest stars, Daniel Negreanu, had a markedly different experience. For the second straight year, "Kid Poker" concluded his WSOP campaign in the red, posting a loss of -$742,807. He played in 70 events and paid $1,120,741 in buy-ins. While he cashed 20 times, it was for a total of $377,934.
For those who hastily judge the final tally, this figure may appear disheartening, but any seasoned poker player understands the inherent volatility of the game. Live tournaments, especially, are subject to high variance, and his WSOP could have easily swung in his favor if just a single card dealt differently, as he had several deep runs in high roller tournaments.

For instance, he placed 22nd in the $25,000 High Roller event, with a first-place prize of $1.2 million and 14th in the $50,000 High Roller event that paid $2.1 million to the winner.

No WSOP bracelet for Negreanu since 2013.

While the WSOP constitutes a significant chunk of Negreanu’s live tournament play each year, it doesn’t solely dictate the course of his year. Last year, despite losing $1.1 million at WSOP, he bounced back and concluded the year up $1.6 million, thanks in large part to his victory at the Super High Roller Bowl for $3,312,000. A similar turnaround happened in 2017, where Negreanu ended the year up $1.4 million, even with a significant WSOP loss of over $1.3 million.

Negreanu is convinced he’ll turn it around again this year, as he’s very confident in his game. There’s also an exciting twist in the tale, as the World Series of Poker announced its first-ever WSOP Paradise to be held in the Bahama this December. With 15 bracelet events on the schedule, it provides an excellent opportunity for players like Negreanu to make a comeback.

Beyond his poker results, Negreanu has graciously allowed us into his world by creating WSOP VLOGs since 2017. These videos offer poker enthusiasts an intimate look at the biggest poker series, providing insights that are otherwise unreachable. This year was no exception, and fans were treated to another round of Negreanu's highly anticipated VLOGs.

Moreover, Negreanu's candid openness about his results, whether triumphant or challenging, has been a defining aspect of his character. While the figures may not always favor him, his willingness to share these experiences with his followers encapsulates the true essence of who he is, one of the poker’s greatest ambassadors.
