Poker players across the United States and around the world are excitedly awaiting the 2022 World Series of Poker, following the release of the WSOP schedule last week.
He may have six WSOP bracelets, but count Daniel Negreanu among those who are counting down the days ahead of the biggest and most prestigious poker festival in the world.

Negreanu Targets the High Rollers
Negreanu praised the WSOP team and specifically WSOP Vice President Jack Effel for their ability to solve the “puzzle” that is the WSOP schedule.
“It’s a daunting task, but I think they nailed it,” Negreanu told PokerNews. “The WSOP schedule has something for everyone from low rollers to high rollers, big bet players and mixed game lovers!
“Plenty of fun events sprinkled in there and even something for the online grinders.”

Last week Negreanu gave his Twitter followers a first look at the WSOP schedule he was planning to play.
“As usual, I’m going to put in a lot of volume, focusing mainly on the high buy in events and kicking it off with a new tournament, a $100,000 Bounty event! The one I look most forward to every year is the $50K Poker Players Championship.
Negreanu’s Million Dollar Summer?
Breaking down Negreanu’s schedule, he plans to play in 49 of the 88 bracelet events, mostly consisting of mixed game and High Roller events. This means it looks like Kid Poker won’t be making an appearance in the $5,000,000 GTD opening event ‘The Homecoming’, nor will he be jumping into the Colossus, Millionaire Maker or Monster Stack.
Another notable event not on Negreanu’s schedule is the Million Dollar Bounty, which comes with a top bounty of $1,000,000.
If you total up all buy-ins of the 49 events on Negreanu’s schedule, it comes to over $930,000 — and that’s before re-entry events are taken into account!
With the Schedule Out, Here’s What Will Be Different at the 2022 WSOP
Daniel Negreanu’s WSOP Schedule
As stated by Negreanu himself, the schedule features 10 events with buy-ins over $10,000. They include the $250,000 and $100,000 High Rollers, both of which come with single re-entries.
The breakdown of events also shows that Negreanu is focusing on No-Limit Hold’em and mixed events (e.g. Dealer’s Choice, Poker Players Championship) as he aims to add another WSOP bracelet to his collection.
