Daniel Negreanu Says He Has Lost $176,000 So Far This World Series Of Poker

However, Poker Pro Looking To Make Deep Run In $50,000 Buy-In

It’s rare for poker pros to openly advertise precisely how much they are (or were) down during the summer World Series of Poker, but that’s what Daniel Negreanu did on Sunday.

According to his tracking app, he has lost just over $176,000 after playing 30 events.

He has cashed five times, which is actually a very solid number, but has failed to make serious money, at least for his bankroll, in any of them.

Despite the losses this summer, poker tournaments haven’t been so bad for Negreanu lately. In April he won $1,087,160 and his fourth career bracelet at a WSOP event in Australia.

He also made two prestigious (non-WSOP) final tables in May for combined winnings of $553,000.

Despite the slow start to the summer, Negreanu could turn everything with a deep run in the $50,000 “Players Championship”, which is currently underway at the Rio. At the start of the second day of play on Monday, Negreanu had about an average stack.

I like how open Daniel is. Seems like a solid dude. I know a lot of players who say they win all of the time...but we all know poker doesnt run that way. Good for him for being open about it.

I agree, nice to see someone lay it out there.
Usually its, "Having a bad series but making up for it with action from others...running bad but cash games making up, btw still have a piece available for....."

It's not just Negreanu. Take a look at the table published by PokerOlymp just before the start of the WSOP (http://bit.ly/1bxmP0W). You don't need to know German to read the numbers. 136 players with 50+ entries in the 2011 and 2012 WSOPs. Only 30% of them with a profit over those two years, even where they've cashed 20% of the entries.
