WSOP 2015: Daniel Negreanu kidnapped
MISSING: DANIEL NEGREAU (AKA KID POKER)
We knew Daniel Negreanu was popular, but this is ridiculous.
At some point in the last 24 hours, someone went into the PokerStars Playhouse at the Palms and made off with the gigantic Negrenau poster that welcomed everyone in the door.
Seriously. There is someone out there with a five-foot picture of Daniel Negreanu's mug, and the people of PokerStars want it back.
Now, I'll be the first to admit, I found it a little creepy to walk down a lonely hallway and come face-to-face with Smilin' Kid Poker, so it's entirely possible somebody might have freaked out a little bit and did something they didn't really mean to do. The alternatives are a little more troubling.
What has happened to Daniel?
Was he kidnapped by an anti-vegan cult?
Is there someone currently standing in front of the poster in his bedroom muttering, "My intention is to be Daniel Negreanu. My intention is to be Daniel Negreanu."
Is a merry prankster currently covering himself in shea butter and rolling around on Negreanu's face?
Or...and this just occurred to me...did Daniel steal the poster to keep for himself?
In any case, Lee Jones (who, really, you shouldn't mess with) is currently employing the services of the Palms security team to determine just who swiped our boy.
In the meantime, if you run across the poster, you can bring it to the Playhouse at the Palms (Fantasy Tower, Room 27-201), and Lee will give you a free chip set with no questions asked.
In the meantime, I'm going to see if I can Microsoft Paint a picture of Daniel to use in the Playhouse in the meantime.
