Daniel Negreanu, Erick Lindgren, Peter “Nordberg” Feldman, Paul Wasicka, Blake Stepp, Martin de Knijff and others picked their squads to compete for a $25k first place prize (plus a ton of side action).
Unfortunately not among the side action was Daniel Negreanu getting $20k for eating an In-n-Out burger. He wanted $147k. Sounds exactly like what happened at our old office FFL leagues. Except the bets were more like, “I’ll bet you $10 you can’t figure out in 30 seconds what my retirement savings will be in this deferred comp plan if I put 15% earnings aside for 35 years.”
Crazy sonsofbitches in the insurance industry. You have no idea, man.
