Negreanu offering WSOP staking opportunities with no markup
Kid Poker is going to be busy at this year’s WSOP bonanza
Daniel Negreanu is hoping the odds will be in his favor this summer. He has announced that he will be hot and heavy into the WSOP series, participating in more tournaments than he did last year. Kid Poker’s motivation is simple – he wants to be Player of the Year (POY) for a third time. In order to give poker fans the opportunity to score a little cash on his behalf, he’s going to be staking himself out in all of the games he plays, but with an added bonus.
Negreanu is offering three staking packages for low, medium or high buy-in games. Unlike other players, though, he is not adding a markup – zero, zilch, nada. Stakers will take 100% of the return on their investments.
For all games with a buy-in of $1,500 or under, fans can purchase a package worth up to $100 of his action. Mid-range games, those with a buy-in of $1,501 to $10,000, will cost $500 and everything above $10,001 is available for as much as $5,000. However, fans can also get in on the action for as little as $5, so there are definitely a lot of options available.
Negreanu currently has two POY titles – he won in 2004 and 2013. He is the only player to have won two and he wants to pick up a third before someone is able to match his current record. In doing so, he will remain at the top of the stack. Until Justin Bonomo won big last year, Kid Poker was at the top of the stack in winnings, having earned $39.8 million in live cashes.
Bonomo bested him, taking a total of $44.6 million, but Negreanu still has another ace – the six WSOP bracelets he owns. Bonomo only has three so far.
