Daniel Negreanu Contemplates Hiring a Bodyguard After an Odd Encounter with a Lady at the WSOP
09 Jun

Following a strange incident at the WSOP, Daniel Negreanu inquired whether he should have a bodyguard on poker Twitter. The lady and her conspiracy theories and insanity spooked Amanda Negreanu, Daniel's wife.

Whilst bodyguards are not uncommon in the poker industry. They are typically used to safeguard the player from being mugged for the massive sums of money they frequently carry around.

Daniel Negreanu's dilemma is somewhat odd, as he explained in his daily WSOP video.

Daniel was blissfully live streaming on his break, as his video shows, when a woman disrupted him, and for those who can't see the footage, that "woman" tweeted out what transpired.

Sara Palmer, who cashed in the 2018 World Series of Poker, followed up with more bizarre tweets:

"I said something about him wanting to vax innocent babies & he was out of there, obviously. Worst of all, Tinfoil was covering my WHOLE HAT (gotta block those EMFs). He couldn't see my face, & wanted to see who I was, so he followed me at an unnecessary pace @ 12am."
She added the odd:
"@RealKidPoker's soul/pineal is so calcified... Senile and with a nasty superiority complex, I sense negative ROI for him this year. I forgot how short he is. I'm taller than he is. It must be from watching so much TV. Looked cracked out, too tbh VAIDS? Now I know WHY he NEEDS an RV."
Amanda, Daniel's wife, was dragged into the discussion in the fifth and last tweet, at least for now.

Negreanu himself was not furious about the encounter; instead, he was worried about the mental stability of Miss Palmer. He stated that members of his own family had struggled with mental health difficulties in the past.

Poker Twitter and Daniel's followers were far less tolerant, as Palmer frequently posted fabricated accounts of the event despite being recorded on video.

The vote has returned an emphatic "no!" concerning the bodyguard matter. Nevertheless, if similar events occur, Negreanu's wife Amanda may still have her way and convince her husband to hire a bodyguard.

Phil Ivey's bodyguard once reportedly floored a player in Bobby's Room; sadly, YouTube has since deleted the incident footage.

Not the first bizarre incident

Given the number of poker players, such occurrences are highly uncommon, but the WSOP has seen its fair share of weird and frightening conduct throughout the years.

Ken Strauss was disqualified and evicted in 2019 after pulling down his trousers and showing his genitals at the main event at the Rio, then replicating his shenanigans at the neighboring Luxor.

Strauss had a mental illness, and he went on to tweet threatening tweets against a Las Vegas casino before being caught and charged with terrorism. Strauss, who underwent mental examination, was sentenced to two years probation as a plea agreement.

Authorities banned him from communicating with Las Vegas casinos and advised Strauss to get mental health assistance.
