Daniel Negreanu - just like many other pros - has left America and moved to Canada in order to play poker online. Negreanu is now located in Toronto and has already taken care of all necessary paper work etc. In his latest blog "Boy Did I Miss Online Poker!" he wrote the following:
"It took a couple days, but I successfully set up shop in Toronto so that I can play on PokerStars again. I already had the Canadian passport, but just like everyone else, I needed to attain the necessary documents then wait for the call from PokerStars security to verify the phone number, and voila! I'm back in action!
I jumped right into some $25-$50 PLO 6 max deep with ante games, and within 5 hands I lost my first buy in HAHA. Had an open ended straight draw/flush draw versus top set and didn't hit. Oh well, it didn't hurt a bit, I was just glad to be playing again."
Negreanu has a busy schedule ahead of him. At the moment he's in Barcelona for the EPT, and to shoot new commercial spots for PokerStars. After that WCOOP on PokerStars, then EPT London, then back to Vegas October 27.
"The plan now is to head to Barcelona on the 26th for EPT Barcelona. I'll be staying for the entire tourney no matter what, because at the end of that we'll be shooting some new commercial spots for PokerStars.
From there I'll be on vacation/grinding WCOOP's on PokerStars. First stop is Montenegro for a week, then we'll head to Budapest. We "might" make a short drive/trip to Romania, but that's not set in stone yet.
At the end of September, it's off to London, for EPT London. Then, a three week trip to Cannes for WSOP Europe. At the end of that, a drive up the road to EPT San Remo, a super juicy tournament!
I left Vegas on Aug 21st and won't be back there until October 27th. In Nov/Dec I may take in some Leaf games in Toronto, do the online grind, and spend Christmas with my brother and his wife until heading over to the PCA in January. I'm sure I'll fit some tournaments in at some point as well."
