    According to a recent report by PokerListings, Daniel Negreanu has decided to drop out of the upcoming NBC Heads Up Poker Championship. The pro was very cryptic as to why he was dropping out and has everyone speculating as to why he chose to forfeit his seat at the event. Negreanu posted a series of Tweets on Twitter as well as a Creed music video to explain his decision.

    The first message on Twitter stated: “I spent about 5 hours on the phone today having deep meaningful conversations. I learned stuff about myself today that’s just “woah” lol. This tweet was followed by: “made one of the most important discoveries of my life this weekend, and a tough decision last night. I am 100% CERTAIN I choose correctly.”

    The next two statements came right after: “I’ll clue you in tomorrow evening. Sorry for the cryptic tweets lol but it will all make sense soon”  and then the following message and video: “THIS….the lyrics to this song have some really deep meaning for me!” The video was of rock band Creed singing Arms Wide Open, which is like a decade or more old.

    It was then later on, that the pro posted his last tweet stating:  “I am withdrawing from the NBC Heads Up event this weekend. I love and support this event and will explain why in a video later today.”  According to PokerListings, David Sands will be replacing Negreanu in the event. This post was from earlier this morning, so it will be interesting to see if the pro posts any more information later today.

    With this series of Twitter posts and his weird posting of the Creed song, has everyone talking. Some are wondering if the pro is going to propose to his girlfriend or make another big decision. However, if I had to guess, I would suggest that his girlfriend may be pregnant. The Arms Wide Open song by Creed states:

    “I’ll take her by my side
    We stand in awe, we’ve created life”

    “If I had just one wish
    Only one demand
    I hope he’s not like me
    I hope he understands
    That he can take this life
    And hold it by the hand
    And he can greet the world
    With arms wide open…”

    Now, I take this as the girlfriend is pregnant and Negreanu has had to make certain decisions with this revelation. This is only speculation, but we shall hopefully soon see what all the secrecy is about!
