Daniel Negreanu is back with another video blog, updating his fans on his run so far in the World Series of Poker. Negreanu started out well, but have been struggling to find his form since then, he says.
Daniel Negreanu as usual had high expectations for the 2012 World Series of Poker, but so far the experience has not quite been what he had hoped for.
Negreanu started out well and took fifth place in one of the series' very first events for a little more than $41,000, but since then he has only cashed once more for an additional $5,639.
Far from satisfying for the Canadian pro, who now looks back at his bad run in a new video blog posted last night on his Youtube channel.
"I felt good when the WSOP started, I started with a positive mindset. However, the past the days have been really hard," Negreanu said.
"I've been playing long enough to know the difference between bad luck and bad play, and I've had a lot of bad luck. I'm not gonna whine, because I had a lot of luck in my life, but I am just stating the facts," he added.
Despite the bad run, Negreanu said to be confident for the last part of the series, which still has 31 from a total of 61 events to go. Negreanu has planned to play in a large number of events, and expects his luck to turn around soon, he said.
"The good news is that we are only half-way through. I had a few good days to relax and just zen out. It's normal, when you are running bad, it's hard on your mind so you need to keep it together a little bit," he said.
"I'm human and I have a boiling point and I've been pretty close to that in the past few days. But, I'm feeling good now, and I'm ready for the last part of the World Series."
All in all, Negreanu's cashes at the 2012 amounts to $47,322. In comparison, the 2011 WSOP offered three cashes amounting to a total of $77,047.
