Twenty-four hours ago, 367 players were filing into the Sheraton WTC with an extra R$4,000 burning holes in their pockets. They'd come to play Day 1 of the PokerStars.net Latin American Poker Tour São Paulo, and they've created a prize pool in excess of R$1.3 million. Ten levels have already come and gone, and just 107 lucky players survived long enough to bag up chips. Among them is Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu who turned up a bit late for the starting time. He was in bed sleeping off some of the Brazilian intoxicants from the night before, but his power nap did him well. Negreanu chipped up steadily through the course of the evening, bagging up 121,700 chips to put himself just outside the overnight top ten. Leo Fernandez, Humberto Brenes, and Nacho Barbero are also still in contention for the Team PokerStars Pros, and Barbero is doing the best of that bunch with an average stack of 65,200. Also returning today from the Notables category are Mayu Roca Uribe (128,000), Jorge Pereira (113,700), Elio Fox (99,700), Felipe Ramos (97,300), and Bill Gazes (44,000). Everyone's chasing Jean Double right now, though, and his stack of 189,400 gives him the title of Chip Leader after the first day. The players are just beginning to trickle into the room right now, and we're about a half hour away from our scheduled starting time. Sit tight; we'll be back when the cards go in the air.Read more: http://www.pokernews...n-event/?page=2
Negreanu Going for the TrifectaPosted 27 minutes ago by donpeters• Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante In the history of the PokerStars-sponsored poker tours, no player has ever made it to an LAPT, APPT and EPT final table. Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu has the chance to be the first-ever player to accomplish that feat if he can maneuver his way down to the final eight in this event. At the EPT Vienna in 2010, Negreanu placed fourth out of 578 players for €175,000. Later that year, he took ninth in the APPT Sydney Grand Final for A$36,415. It is of note that the Sydney final table was nine-handed, whereas most APPT, LAPT and EPT final tables are generally eight-handed.Read more: http://www.pokernews...nal/main-event/

I love the game of poker for the competition, the psychology, the never-ending quest to improve, the advanced and sometimes minute complexities not everyone sees when they play, and the enjoyment of succeeding after giving all your energy to reach a goal that may at first seem unattainable but that you find a way to make it possible.
