If you are wondering whether poker pros live the high life – here’s your answer: Daniel Negreanu is one of a handful of poker pros who has a tricked-out trailer and he’s parking it right outside the Rio in Vegas while playing in the 2012 World Series of Poker.
If you’re at the Rio, then you know then you know all about the plethora of trailers parked outside the building. Apparently, Negreanu rents one every year, and this one looks pretty swanky.
“I’m a vegan, so I have a fridge full of stocked foods with a microwave so I never have to worry about going hungry, and also in between breaks I’m double dipping a lot of these tournaments,” he wrote in his blog.
“So like today I played a new tournament and I was out by two o’clock, the next tournament wasn’t until five, so I could go home and come back, but it’s a bit of a hassle and there’s nowhere to hang out. I’m not gonna hang out in the hallways, so this is kind of a secluded little quiet area where I can veg.”
Negreanu added, “The biggest perk of having this trailer is also the location of it, you’re right next to the poker room so every break you can come out here, better parking, really just relaxation and comfort because this is a grind. Like three weeks in, everyone is angry and mad at each other because we’re here, and this gives me sort of a home away from home.”
Perhaps these trailer rentals are good luck for Negreanu, who boasts 52 cashes, four bracelets and millions in WSOP winnings. Want to pull your giant trailer up to the Rio? Qualify for a seat at the WSOP with Sports Interaction’s online WSOP qualifiers.
