$125,000 is a ton of cash for most people, but for one gambler in Las Vegas the amount is apparently a drop in the bucket. Poker pro Daniel Negreanu shared a story on his Twitter account which involves a stranger and $125,000.
Negreanu posted on his Twitter account that a stranger gave him $125,000 after stating he had no use for the large amount of cash. Negreanu stated that he did not know the stranger who approached him and handed him the large sum of money. the poker pro related the incident to his Twitter followers in two posts:
“Guy I’d never met before just handed me $125k in cash cause he had ‘no use for it and had to fly out’. Man do I live in a strange world.”
Swear I’d never seen him before but knew the online name. it’s just so surreal. And no, I didn’t even count it.”
Negreanu apparently did not know the person but did know the name the player used online. Many are speculating that the incident is a joke or an attempt to gain publicity. On poker forum TwoPlusTwo, many are questioning the truth of the story.
Many believe that Negreanu took the cash to swap for PokerStars credits. Negreanu is a sponsored pro on the site and would be able to swap the cash for credits. This is not the first time the pro has earned cash in a strange incident.
Negreanu posted previously that he had earned $25,000 from the Rio Casino after he went to collect a minor cash out. The cashier told Negreanu that he had a check for $25,000 that had not been claimed from 2011. Apparently, the pro is extremely lucky as of late in getting extra cash. It will be interesting to see if the pro’s luck continues in upcoming WSOP events.
