Just ahead of the 2024 World Series of Poker, Daniel Negreanu delivered predictions to Twitter. Some are far-fetched, while other prophecies seem likely.

We know he's good at reading opponents, but how about the future?

1. "Allen Kessler will complain about the price of the hamburger no tomatoes, no lettuce, no condiments just bread and burger."

We didn't have to wait long for this one to be confirmed. Allan Kessler immediately replied, saying, "The Bobby's burger plain double burger and fries is like $30."

Kessler isn't far off on this one. Bobby Flay's Paris eatery has plenty of burgers on offer below $16, like the CrunchBurger, and the Bobby Blue Burger, but those are single patty burgers, and fries are $6.50. Don't forget the Las Vegas sales tax of 6.85% – and you've got something close to a $30 burger.

If you win one of the events, you might be able to head to Gordon Ramsay's restaurant for a $30 slider. It's got a red wine aïoli, foie caramelized onions, crispy jalapeño, and a price fit for a WSOP winner.

2. "Someone (other than me) will smash a selfie stick."

Selfie sticks have become stronger and more durable since their invention in 2005, so the odds of this prediction coming true are shrinking every year.

Remember in 2022 when Daniel tried his best to destroy his selfie stick? What was the reason? Daniel's pocket 10s were beaten by David Peters' . The flop came , then a , and another on the river.

3. "Someone will complain about the chairs (probably me)."

If you follow Daniel's career, even from afar, you might know he's very particular about his chairs.

"The Chair of the People" gives Daniel an unknown EV multiplier and unknown levels of back support. He says it's the simplicity and even called one of the newer ones a "piece of sh**," before swapping it for his own.

4. "Someone will win multiple online bracelets."

Daniel hasn't won any World Series of Poker online bracelets yet. The closest he came was 4th in 2023, during an online $500 No-Limit Holdem event.

So far, here are the players who have won multiple online WSOP bracelets in a single year (2020 to 2023):

  • Calvin Anderson (USA) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2023
  • Guy Dunlap (USA) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2023 and 1 in 2020
  • Daniel Chan (USA) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2023
  • Shannon Shorr (USA) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2023
  • John Riordan (USA) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2023
  • Tanner Bibat (USA) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2022
  • Claas Segebrecht (Germany) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2022
  • Alek Stasiak (Canada) – 2 online bracelet wins in 2020

Plenty of players have won online bracelets over multiple years, but bagging more than one in a year? Only a privileged few can claim this feat. According to our findings, only 8 players have done it. If Daniel's right, the list may grow this year.

Online WSOP events have been held on GGPoker in the past. However, the 2024 online bracelet events will be on the WSOP's poker platform in select locations.

5. "Shaun Deeb will not win Player of the Year."

We can't say how well Shaun Deeb is going to do in 2024 (but we'll soon see).

The 2023 WSOP Player of the Year was almost given to Shaun Deeb, but Ian Matakis took the top spot. How does the World Series tally the points for the POY? It's based upon a point system that counts all bracelet events in a given year, with modifiers for the buy-in size and number of entries.

He definitely hopes Daniel is wrong though.

6. "Phil Ivey wins #11."

Daniel is not predicting that Phil Ivey is going win in event #11 – which is a $1,500 Badugi tournament. He's talking about WSOP bracelets.

Phil Ivey has won 10 so far, and obviously, wouldn't mind another one in his collection. At the moment, he is tied at 10 with Erik Seidel, Johnny Chan, and Doyle Brunson.

If you're reading this after the 2024 WSOP, he might not be tied anymore.

7. "Chance Kornuth wins a big field smaller buy-in NLH event."

This is one of Daniel's more likely prophecies since Chance has already won one of these smaller buy-in big field events.

In 2018, he won a bracelet in a $3,200 High-Roller event with 480 entries, a big field for the WSOP.

8. "John Hennigan wins the $50k PPC playing like Kevin Kostner in Tin Cup, yolo ICM is for poor people."

Tin Cup is a 1996 film, so you might not know how Kostner played in it. Basically, he approaches the game of golf with his heart over his head, seemingly without limitations on his confidence.

Whether this strategy will work for John Hennigan is unclear. With 6 bracelets to his name already, he probably doesn't need to apply the "ICM is for poor people" strategy.

By the way, that phrase was coined by Nacho Barbero in a moment of wisdom.

9. "PLO events will break records for the number of entrants."

Pot-Limit Omaha has been growing steadily in popularity, as many players look for new games and less-saturated fields. Sure, Pot-Limit Omaha is unlikely to surpass Holdem in popularity anytime soon, but it might crack last year's PLO entries.

Online, the club poker scene is a hotbed for PLO games, including 4, 5, and 6-card variants. The World Series may also add 5-card and 6-card into the lineup, but 2024 wasn't the year.

10. "The WSOP main event will once again crack 10k players."

The Main Event in 2023 was the first year that the World Series of Poker reached and surpassed 10k entrants (coming in at 10,043).

Will 2024 repeat that trend with even larger numbers? We'll be watching, but there's nothing to suggest it won't. The number of entrants has been steadily rising ever since Moneymaker's 2003 boom-inducing win, with a brief hiccup in 2020 due to COVID.

11. "I will say something really offensive and stupid in the daily VLOGS."

Daniel isn't known for too many offensive comments unless you remember the "more rake is better" saga. Long before that, he was under a little criticism for dressing in a Jamaican cap with brown makeup, but the world has mostly forgotten about that by now. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

That being said, it sounds like Daniel may be expecting some outbursts. If he gets two-outered with a set again, that's guaranteed.

12. "After two years in the red during the WSOP, those that bought a piece of me on PokerStake will win money."

Daniel is offering up 10% of his action for Event #6, a Heads-Up WSOP Championship with a $25,000 buy-in. It's sure to sell quickly once he opens it up on the day of the event, May 31st.

As far as winning goes, nobody can say for sure yet.

Unlike some players trying to get staked, Daniel won't have to promote this one too hard.

Rampage Poker reflected on losing a million dollars in high-stakes cash games and announced his upcoming poker plans, including the Million Dollar Game.
