Daniel Negreanu is back with a new vlog! Earlier this week, the Canadian poker pro uploaded fresh content on his YouTube channel, giving viewers and fans a glimpse of what he’s been up to during the entire home quarantine period.
He also talked about his plans for the upcoming World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Bracelet series which is set to kick off a few days from now.
In his latest vlog, Negreanu showed how a typical quarantine day looks like for him – he’s now become more focused on staying fit and improving his health by working out regularly in his home gym, eating a well-balanced, healthy diet, and taking some dips in the pool.
Negreanu also showed off his expensive golf simulator, which also keeps him busy while staying at home.
Plans For WSOP Online Bracelet Series
The hunt for the highly-coveted WSOP gold bracelet begins on July 1 at WSOP.com, with one bracelet event running daily throughout the month. GGPoker, the brand that Negreanu currently represents, will also play host to 54 online bracelet events on July 19 to September 6.
Had the 2020 WSOP pushed through back in May, Negreanu would have been at The Rio in Vegas today, grinding and chasing for a seventh bracelet. But the ongoing global health crisis has changed everybody’s plans. And so Negreanu will now have to prepare for the upcoming online bracelet series which is now just less than a week away.
The Poker Hall of Famer revealed he will initially play from home on WSOP.com, but he will later fly to Mexico with his wife to continue the online action. Describing their temporary shelter there, Negreanu said it’s a rented house with some great spot on the beach. He also said he won’t be releasing vlogs on a daily basis like he used to, but will only post one or two vlogs a week, sharing his WSOP Online journey.
Negreanu and his wife Amanda chose to stay home for the entire three months of the COVID-19 lockdown, and turned to home and online entertainment to keep themselves sane. The Canadian poker pro may have been away from the live felts for quite a while now due to the pandemic, but he’s managed to stay connected to the game, thanks to online private games, which he said have been keeping him sharp.
Gearing up for the online bracelet hunt, Negreanu said he will play some tournaments on WSOP.com as a warm-up, and will also stay in contact with GGPoker.
