WSOP 2022 Was The Worst Season For Daniel Negreanu?

Here’s something we never thought we would say, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 could potentially be one of the worst seasons that Daniel Negreanu has experienced. If you have followed any news on WSOP 2022, you must have noticed one thing, that Negreanu’s name has rarely popped up on the list of top contenders in most of the tournaments. Let’s take a look at how he performed.

It was an unkind year for ‘Kid Poker’ who finished down just over $1.1 million. Yup! This year, Negreanu made sure to document his entire WSOP journey via a daily vlog and posted it on his YouTube channel. Despite his less than ideal run on the series this year, he still made sure to show his subscribers the good, the bad, and the ugly side of his game, which made it an entertaining watch.

This was also the first time that the GGPoker ambassador did not make it to the WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard. Yeah, that’s bad. Negreanu cashed in just about 12 events, but even then, these cashes were just min-cashes of maybe slightly more. He did not even make it to one final table of the series, which is the first for him since 2011. In contrast, last WSOP, Negreanu had seven top 10 finishes, 18 cashes in 55 events, earned $1.4 million in cashes, and even finished 3rd in the WSOP Player of the Year race.

Here’s his concluding tweet for WSOP 2021:

His largest score in the entire series was $88,081 after finishing fifth in one $7,777 buy-In event, which was held online.

What went wrong for the poker legend?

Well, we’re all asking ourselves the same question, but we do get an idea of what went down by going over his vlogs. It’s obvious to viewers that many of the games he played did not exactly go his way. While this explains only a small part of his disappointing results, Negreanu has not let the results tilt him.

He told PokerNews, “I think I play better every WSOP with fewer and fewer mistakes. My process is to evaluate what worked and didn’t, and I mean that primarily in terms of preparation rather than poker strategy. As in, what works to help me feel rested and at my best. That’s improved every year, and I’m dialled in on several key principles.”

A big hit to his bankroll was in the $250,000 Super High Roller where he fired two bullets and busted both times. So that’s a total loss of $500,000 in just one tournament. With that, it should be noted that he still finished in the money in 12 events, so that’s something.

Daniel Negreanu On Twitter

With the conclusion of WSOP 2022, Negreanu took to the social media platform and told his followers now that the series was over, he can focus his time on more ‘productive’ things like ‘getting into Twitter arguments.’ The tweet was aimed at his disappointing WSOP 2022 performance shows that the poker pro is just about ready to forget this entire summer, maybe even ignite a Twitter feud to speed up the process. 

All The Best Negreanu!

Whether it was the change in venue, the larger player field, or just a bad season, we may never know the exact reason for Negreanu’s not-so-great performance, we surely wish him the best for the rest of the year. Given that the GGPoker ambassador has not let it affect him, we could see a much better performance next summer. Until then, all the best Negreanu!
