2008 World Series: Negreanu takes a little break

Daniel Negreanu is taking a breather from the World Series. No worries, as it's not very long. Here's a quick note from Negreanu on his day off.

So I think I might have made a strategy error for player of the year. I hope it doesn't cost me. I didn't play in the $1,500 pot limit Omaha event with rebuys. That is essentially like an automatic cash, because there's only 300 some people in it. If you're one of the re-buyers, it very easy to make the money, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're going to make money.

Other tournament updates: Stud eight or better, I tried my butt off, I really did. I started at about 16K and got anteed down to 8k, and I just never caught a hand. I finally had to go in with two kings, it was heads up, and the guy made his flush. So this morning I actually got some rest, which was nice. I really needed it, I've been playing poker every day and I was just exhausted.

In the Omaha 8 or better tournament, I was playing with the most insane poker player ever, Abe Mosseri. He is an absolute insane person. Every time I bet I always call it an Abe, cause he just bets...always bets. He is like bet, bet, bet, bet, bet, bet, bet, bet.

I've been hanging out in the Poker Royalty lounge again, I've been in there for the last couple of days instead of the VIP room which I'm also a member of. It's a little more private, just a different vibe in the Poker Royalty lounge you know. My boys are always in here, E-dog and Gavin, and there's always like 100 people in the VIP room, so this is even better.

Over the weekend I played in two tournaments. I played the triple draw, and I tried real hard in that, and I played like sick good and got beat. Then I foolishly decided to play the $1,500 no limit/limit tournament. No energy, so no results in that one.

I am just exhausted. I've got nothing, no energy. So we got a couple days until the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E event, so I've decided that until then, I'm done with poker.

I'm getting bored playing poker now which is not good. I am really looking forward to this little two day hiatus from the game and then I'll come back recharged and ready.
