PokerStars Team Pro, Daniel Negreanu, has agreed to help promote the forthcoming 24/7-poker channel, Poker Central, whilst finalizing plans to compete in the $500,000 buy-in event.
Daniel Negreanu has agreed to join forces with Poker Central. The PokerStars Team Pro will help promote the impending 24/7-poker news channel, and in particular the beating heart: $500,000 buy-in The Super High Roller Bowl.
Negreanu also took to Twitter to confirm that he will be playing in the $500,000 buy-in event when it takes place at The Aria Resort & Casino: July 2-4. The event slots in perfectly in between the biennial World Series of Poker $1m buy-in Big One for One Drop. Negreanu finished second to Daniel Colman in the 2014 event, winning $8.2m.

“We are excited to add Daniel to the Poker Central team,” said Clint Stinchcomb, CEO of Poker Central. “Daniel is a great ambassador of the game and will help take televised poker to new heights.”
The press release also stated that Poker Central will announce other partners in the coming weeks.
“I am thrilled to join the Poker Central team.” Said Negreanu. “I can’t help to make 24/7 poker a reality.”
Negreanu Continues His Twitch Climb
Negreanu is the all-time live tournament money leader. That suits Negreanu down to the ground. He likes to be the man sitting on top. So, his early exploration into the world of Twitch will have an equally lofty goal at the end of his long walk. All eyes will be set on his colleague, and friend, Jason Somerville. Let there be no doubt, Negreanu will want that crown.
After a week of streaming, Negreanu has already received 636,380 unique views, and 24,911 people have signed up to follow him. His number of followers has already passed the 24,318 that follow Friend of PokerStars Jamie Staples, and I believe he will one day pass the 94,767 that are currently following the market leader Somerville.
He doesn’t shy away from controversy, he is not afraid to speak his mind, and he plays against some of the most interesting cash games players on the planet. That’s why I believe he will one day be poker’s man on Twitch.
