Negreanu agrees on prop bet to win three bracelets at WSOP 2017

Tags: 2017 WSOP, Ben Lamb, Daniel Negreanu, prop bet.
Posted on Tuesday, June 06, 2017 by "T".

Daniel NegreanuJust like any other gambler, poker players need diversity and constant action. That said, playing for millions of dollars in poker cash games and in WSOP tournaments just isn't enough for some individuals looking for more thrill and excitement.

It seems that every year, there are poker pros whose prop bets become the center of attention at the WSOP. Last 2016, Vanessa Selbst challenged Jason Mercier and gave him 180-1 odds on a $10K bet that he cannot win three bracelets. If Mercier fails, he will give her $10,000; if he wins, he will get $1.8 million from her. The bet turned out to be a close call, but luckily for Selbst, Mercier's winning streak ended. Mercier won two bracelets, which isn't an easy feat at all on its own.

This year's WSOP, 42-year-old Daniel Negreanu has entered a prop bet with Ben Lamb, that he could win three WSOP bracelets this summer.

Ben LambNegreanu says that the purpose of this bet is to push his limits throughout the summer. He is confident about it and wishes to prove that he is still one of the best poker players in the world.

On Monday, he tweeted, "Just bet @BenbaLamb I'd win 3 WSOP bracelets this summer at even money. He is lighting money on fire. Punish him!!!"

The hall of famer did not reveal the size of their bet. After he announced the bet on Twitter, other players wanted to have a piece of the action. However, Negreanu said he would only allow a number of players in. Three hours later, he tweeted, "Sorry guys, no more action available at event money for me winning 3 WSOP bracelets this summer I reached my cap."

Will lady luck smile upon Negreanu this WSOP 2017?

I love the way these guys like to gamble and i hope that Daniel Negreanu can have a good go at it. But, to only get even money on three bracelets does seem to be a bit skinny for me
 Robbo19906/6/2017 8:51:18 AM GMT
when you have no real incentive then these kind of bets are a good idea since like he said it will push him. mercier would be kicking himself he didnt take 1.8million from selbst! especially for a easy 10k
 StheP6/6/2017 2:25:47 PM GMT
there is no way negreeanu will earn 3 bracelets this year... I think its almoust impossible for him to get even 1 bracelet... he is just outdated, and there are a sht ton of better players than him, so his chances are equal to zero
 dule-vu6/6/2017 2:42:22 PM GMT
when you have so much money and earn a lot from poker,you dont know what to do and they want new ways to get excitement!ofcourse this is bet that probably he wont win,but as we see he need to be in news!
 shokaku6/6/2017 2:42:22 PM GMT
Usually some events of the less popular variants, like 2-7 triple draw, have fairly small player fields, compared to the Holdèm tourneys. Those offer a fair shot at a bracelet or even two. But winning three in one year will still be tough.
 Calmplay6/6/2017 2:50:18 PM GMT
It would have been doable if it was 10 yrs ago but nowadays you should considered lucky to have reach the final table especially in the NL Holdem tournaments...

 Robbo19906/6/2017 3:32:24 PM GMT
he final tabled the teams event.....I reckon he can since he plays all variants + he's kid poker! if helmuth wins one this year and negreanu doesnt then hell has frozen over
 Tony_MON7ANA6/6/2017 3:34:12 PM GMT
Daniel Negreanu... How old is he now? 41? 42? KidPoker is no longer a kid. Everyone gets old! Time passes so quickly. Hasn't he shaved off his beard yet? I wish him all the best of luck in his endeavor.
 pajalnick6/6/2017 7:26:44 PM GMT
Daniel Negreanu is certainly a great igrioq and it seems to me that for him there are not very many impossible events .... with due concentration and luck he can become the greatest player ever played poker ... and I just really like him at the table ... there he is a great man
 Mober6/6/2017 9:05:40 PM GMT
All the ones agreeing or participating is such bets are pure gamblers.
No matter what they are doing like playing poker or blackjack for example,
i dont think you can call them professional poker players.
They are professional gamblers.
Am i wrong? Smile

all of them are, even if you are a 'invester' its still technically gambling.....its just at one point these pro's have hit a lucky streak so have money to conquer the variance

doesnt have to still be a kid if 'kid poker' is a nickname! just like the poker brat....he doesnt have to still be a brat to be called that initial nickname, usually in such instances it sticks even more when you are the opposite
 Tony_MON7ANA6/7/2017 6:40:18 AM GMT
Who said he has to be a "kid" in a literal sense just because his online nickname is "KidPoker," LMFAO!

wait a sec- negreanu agreed on a bet that he wins 3 bracelets on wsop at even money, when selbst offered mercier same bet at 180-1 odds? talk about a variation in odds... me thinks it was kinda stupid from selbst to take on such a risk for a mere 10k...

The chances are that you are a bit illiterate.
And who are "they" in your post above? Another baseless, invidious assumption?
 DaCapo716/7/2017 9:44:14 AM GMT
It seems, that some poker pros having more fun with bets than with poker playing Big Smile But why not, so they can protect their bankroll for the next tourney. Bu to win three Bracelets this WSOP series was verry difficult, gl Mr. Negreanu Blink

how is it being illiterate; when you said kidpoker was hardly a kid and i said well the nickname sticks regardless of his age....

and 'they' means you - obvious you had a cry and wrote to admin since I havent been able to down vote you for over a month now. but can upvote/downvote others....not hard to figure it out.

so please continue on with your self centered ideology clutching at words to give everyone the impression you are smart....either that or google translate really doesnt work for you

 Gerimantas6/7/2017 5:21:13 PM GMT
I don't tnink it is possible to win three bracelets in wsop, there are so many good players and also many players in each tournament so you must habe so many luck that this is only possible in theory but in reality I think even 2 bracelets are super hard to win.

well its not impossible to win 3 bracelets, jason mercier won 2 and had 2nd place finish for third last year... but its preaty hard... and you have to play almoust all events... which negreano doesnt do... also I think doug polk could win easy 3 bracelets if he played more events... he have 1 for now... we will see
 pinotte6/7/2017 11:02:11 PM GMT
IMO poker is a gambler game even if you have skill involved in it luck has a very big part in the win of a tournament involving 1k or more players.

So if you are not a gambler you won't win in any games.

When these pros are playing cash game with 100K or more on the table i don't call that poker but gambling yes. Smile Smile

I like Daniel Negreanu very much as a poker player and also as an individual.

I have read some of is blog and find it very interesting to read he is having opinions that i find very good and sometime will be against Stars policy even if he is working for them.

However i thing that it will be very hard to win three bracelets specially having finished 2nd. in is last tournament. Smile Smile
 Mober6/8/2017 9:45:49 PM GMT
There are lots arguing though, and even supporting that a professional poker
player, is not a gambler.
I believe they all are, and they havent reached where they are now without gambling Smile

You are simply incapable of inferring the meaning of the underlying message, which clearly suggests how rigid and hard-headed AH you are.

i know its meaning - its said all over the internet to "troll's"....im just showing you what a rediculous attempt at 'insulting' me it was. but again I shouldnt be surprised since you are up yourself and you would think how great your 'comeback' was

sure I admit I am a 'c*nt'....but im only that because like I have said numerous times you talk total dribble and you cant understand how that is possible - I semi understand due to the jap culture however its hard to be tolerant when you are blissfully arrogant

"rediculous"? Is that a word? Keep talking, troll.
And you better learn the correct usage of "-." You have misused hyphens or dashes hundreds of times in your 365 posts over the past four and a half years. There is almost always grammatical error in your comment. There has been virtually zero progress in terms of your writing skills since December 2012.

Don't bother replying back, CNT.

lol seems like you have been playing in the puddles at fukushima for too long.
obviously I dont go back through and edit my posts like you do. why should I? this isnt official - its a casual forum hence why you congratulating pro's after a win is absolutely meaningless.

ooo look at you using swear words like a big boy. what a joke you are.

ofcourse I suck at poker - never said I was any good. get better put downs while you learn casual english instead of looking like a typical asian tryhard

“playing in the puddles at fukushima”? What did you mean by that? And congratulatory messages are meaningless? You have absolutely no right to criticize or berate my or other forumites' innocuous posts. Who the hell do you think you are?
“using swear words”? There is nothing wrong with calling you by a name you referred to yourself previously.
Anyway, thanks for proving yourself to be a downright idiot once again.

You need professional help.
