Dough For Daniel

Got $15,000?

If so, you can spend a weekend with Daniel Negreanu.

The weekend in August is limited to 18 people who will be picked up from the airport in a limo and put up at the Venetian. Participants will be allowed to hang with Daniel for a BBQ at his home in Las Vegas, receive catered meals, get VIP service at a nightclub, and participate in two days of poker seminars and workshops, culminating in a private poker tournament.

“If you’re a serious poker player looking to improve your game, I invite you to join us for ‘A Weekend with Daniel Negreanu”, said Daniel. “Not only will you leave a better player, but you will have a great time and live the life of a high stakes poker player”.

Here’s a question: If someone has $15k or $20k set aside as “poker” money, is it good bankroll management to spend it all on one weekend of instruction and good times?

If you think so, check out the website for more information.

    Tom should buy in to that.

    Tom is test-marketing his own version.

    for that much money…Daniel better give me a reach around.

  4. DanM

    Did anyone else notice Daniel is wearing a pink shirt?

  5. ricky

    If someone has $250k in their poker bankroll, might be fun. I booked already!

    I don’t think you’re supposed to use 100% of your bankroll at one time.
    Although, if you considered each different event over the weekend (flight, baggage claim, hotel lobby, hotel room, breakfast, shower, bathroom break etc) as a session then it would fly.

    Dan, did he borrow your shirt? Wait, did I just post here?

  7. Michele Lewis

    I mean comment?

  8. DanM

    No, his shirt says “Full Contact Poker.” Mine said “PartyPoker.”

    I’ll let you all in on a pink-shirt secret … that wasn’t my doing. In ’06 somehow word got around to the poker sites that pink stood out well on TV. you’ll notice Mike Sexton has the same pink PartyPoker shirt I have.

    But we can pretend it was all my idea. 🙂 The ladies sunglasses concept is mine, by the way. Oh, and Jason Terry’s. He does the same thing.

  9. Michele Lewis

    Yes, I know the whole pink shirt and t.v. story. You just keep telling yourself that, Danimal.

    As for you wearing ladies sunglasses, I will forever think of Clonie’s response to you that night at dinner when you told her that your glasses looked good on her.

    Do you remember?

    C’mon, I say that to all the girls.
