In his last vlog of the 2022 World Series of Poker Daniel Negreanu covers his last day of play, wraps up the series, and shares his plans for what comes next.

If you go by sheer drama, this might have been one of Negreanu’s most eventful series. He was harassed by a literal tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist, sent blackmail messages over an alleged secret family, and injured his hand during the shooter panic that swept down the Vegas strip on the weekend.

Due to his one injured hand, the puppies on the vlog at the start of his vlog only get half the belly rubs they clearly deserve. But they’ll be seeing a lot more of DNegs now the series is over. His immediate plans are to hit the couch, let his hand repair, and play some online chess.

A long two months at the WSOP

If you go just by naked results, Daniel Negreanu had a solid World Series of Poker this year. Eight live cashes and another four online for twelve total. Seven of those cashes put him in the top twenty for the event, two of those at a final table. He cashed for a total of $253,636.

Unfortunately, when you look behind the results things look a little shakier. Negreanu goes hard during the series and that means he plays a lot of events, a lot more than twelve buy-ins coming to a lot more than $253,636.

In the video, Negreanu says, “One of the hardest things about this job is being able to say ‘things are going terribly, but I’m gonna get up tomorrow and give it my all.'”

Overall it looks like Negreanu’s losses for the series are around $1.1 million, about half of which comes from the $250,000 Super High Roller in which he fired two bullets and his camera rig into the wall.

Stakers who bought the “Series Long Package” will be getting back 41.9 cents on the dollar a somewhat better return on their investment than Negreanu himself has made.
