Poker Tweets: Negreanu Releases 2017 WSOP Schedule

Negreanu Releases 2017 WSOP ScheduleHere’s a selection of the best tweets coming from your favorite pros over the past week, starting with Daniel Negreanu, who has now released his playing schedule for the upcoming 48th Annual WSOP in Las Vegas. According to his blog, the 6-times WSOP bracelet winner is intending on entering around 40 of its 74 events, which should cost him in the region of $1 million.
In return, Negreanu is hoping for $1.5 million in winnings, and 3 more WSOP bracelets, which should be enough to secure him a third WSOP Player of the Year award, to go with the one’s he already earned back in 2004 and 2013. The 42 year-old also said he would be playing in mostly non-NLH events, as they are “more fun, more interesting, and [provide] a better shot at a bracelet.” In those no-limit hold’em events he does play, however, Negreanu said that he would be waging a stop clock war on any “habitual tankers”, and as his tweet read:
“My 2017 WSOP Schedule: Also my plan to utilize the clock on players in any NLH events I may play. I will be aggro.”
“With millions on the line and the time it takes to think about the math, you want the clock called more often? Cmon daniel be real bro.”
Dang Phung
“100% agree with you on calling the clock. I love it. It’s not good for poker when players habitually tank hand after hand.”
“I Hope To One Day Get Clocked By You”
