Daniel Negreanu Reveals How Much He Sold of Himself To Public For BIG ONE For ONE DROP EventPublished on 2014-06-30 18:55:00
With the exception of maybe Phil Ivey, most professional poker players need to sell off substantial chunks of their action in order to play in the $1,000,000 BIG ONE For ONE DROP event.
Daniel Negreanu was no exception, as he took to Twitter to try to raise half of his buy-in for the event:
"Selling 50% of my action for One Drop. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details if interested in having a piece of me."
50% is still a significant percentage to have of yourself in a $1,000,000 tournament - there are other players in the event who likely have only 10% of themselves.
So, how successful was Negreanu's fundraising campaign for the ONE DROP event?
According to the video below, Negreanu ended up selling 13% of his action to the general public:
In addition, Negreanu said that he also some sold of his action to some of his friends.
Phil Hellmuth, who also took to his Twitter account to try to raise money for the $1,000,000 buy-in tournament, was less successful with his fund-raising efforts as he ended up missing the tournament.
