2009 WCOOP: Negreanu lays out war plan
Daniel Negreanu is a man with a plan. Although he is going to be jetting all over the globe for live tournaments and trying to fit in some golf time in the sweet September weather in Las Vegas, he's got his eye on some big time events in this year's World Championship of Online Poker. With less than two weeks to go before the first WCOOP event, Negreanu has been kind enough to tell us the events on which he is planning to focus. Oh, and be sure to check out the prop bet potential at the end of his post...

So it's that time again.
Time for the WCOOP where you'll see all the best online and live players grinding it out online at PokerStars.com in an awesome series of tournaments. My favorite thing about the WCOOP is that there is a little something in there for everybody in terms of buy-in and game type. It's not just no-limit hold'em everyday. I mean, they have a Badugi tournament! How cool is that?
I've looked over the schedule and there are a few events in particular that really catch my eye:
question about it! I love playing all the games and that's the game I normally play at PokerStars.com anyway, usually in the $400-$800 game.
with pros and I'm excited about it. I grew up playing mostly H.O.R.S.E. in my mid-twenties, grinding it out at Bellagio.
So that's a glimpse at a few of the events that I'm really looking forward to, but I also plan on playing several of the smaller events throughout the WCOOP, depending on my schedule.
September is also a good golf month in Vegas, so I just might have to bring my laptop out to the course and multi-task! Can Elky break 90 and win a WCOOP at the same time? Ha, there's a challenge where I think I might have a chance.
