World Series of Poker & Meeting Daniel Negreanu

I was staying at the Rio at Vegas, which is probably one of best hotels to stay in, because of the World Series of Poker that was going on downstairs. Took a look around and its very packed with poker.

Even watched a couple hands at the Final table. But, its not as exciting, since I can't see the hole cards. Ppls really get excited when someone says "ALL IN".

I'm still sad that I forgot to buy a souvier from the wsop store before I left Vegas. They had a cool money clip that looked like a wsop bracklet.

Oh well, next year.

Later that night, around 12:30am. I went to the lobby to find something to eat. I see someone familar walking towards me, and I reliaze it was Daniel Negreanu. I give him a "Hey" and he replys "how's it going, man" and then proceeds back to his room.

Short, but a fun highlight of my trip, since I always watch the guy on TV.
I swear, after meeting him. I feel my skills have gotten alittle better. Hahaha...
I guess some of his luck rubbed off.

For those who don't know him:
