Daniel Negreanu's friend lost $250k during a flight

Posted on 22 March 2010 by "T".

A few days ago, Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu wrote in his blog that he really would like to have access to the Internet during the flights with his favorite airline Lufthansa. However, he admits that it can get really expensive playing poker high up in the sky. Not from own experience, but from what he heard from a Swedish friend who hoped to win some money to pay for his ticket but instead ended up losing $250k!

"I hung out in LA yesterday since my flight overseas leaves out of LA. I love flying Luftansa but desperately wished they had internet access on the planes. They used to, and I know this because one of my Swedish friends took that flight overseas and played online poker on the way in the hopes of paying for his flight. Instead, he went off for 250k lol... now that's an expensive flight!"

Do these guys EVER take a break??
I really wonder sometimes.
And what was he playing?

One of two chances for Negreanu's friend: he can start flying on 1st class, enjoying the best of it and aplauding each dolar he payed for the travel; or he can start flying economic flights so he can spend a bit more trying to recover from that way high tilt last time!

Too many distractions going on during a flight that can mess up your game.
 GIOMi623/03/2010 02:17:25 GMT
That is super bad luck, but good luck will come around. Just be patience and you will see that lady luck will come by.

HIGHEST STAKES, MAYBE; HOW WOULD ANYONE LOSE SUCH A HUGE AMOUNT IN A SINGLE FLIGHT IF NOT A HIGH STAKE... OMG... ITS MUCH BETTER HAD HE LOST IT IN A SHIP RIDE... LOL

lol he should get some rest in the plane instead of playing poker.
imo there will be too much distractions and it will be hard to concentrate with so many people around you .
