We hope that John Juanda had a big breakfast yesterday…
We can’t tell if he’s kidding or not but poker pro John Juanda, who is confirmed to be at the WSOP from his participation in the $25k Mix Max, apparently did not register for the $10K 2-7 Triple Draw so he could partake in a little Choice Center emotional intelligence work.
As you may know, Choice Center is the controversial self-help institution that’s making the rounds in the elite poker professional community, endorsed early and often by Daniel Negreanu.
Juanda, who is considered one of the best in the world at 2-7, has had a ton of success in $10k 2-7 bracelet events in the past, including winning a World Series of Poker bracelet in the discipline back in 2011.
Perhaps this was one big amazing angle shoot from Kid Poker himself! Follow if you will: Daniel, who has a massive bracelet bet going, convinces Juanda, the best 2-7 player in the world to skip a small field event where he’s a heavy favorite and get secret tips from him on how to win…easy game indeed.
