Where are the "amazing" promotions promised by Daniel Negreanu ?

At the end of 2015, when Amaya announced the cutting of SNE, Dnegs came in to the forums and the ChicagoJoey podcast and he promised the players that there would be some amazing promotions on Pokerstars in the 1st half of 2016.

It's now almost August and nobody has seen these promotions anywhere. So Dnegs, were you lying to us the whole time or was Baazov's firing the actual promotion ? It would be great if you could clarify your position on these promises.

Dude, you must have missed this generous promotion:

https://www.pokerstars.com/poker/pro...tars-giveaway/

You get an amazing EV of 0,03$/day.....in one year this equals a BigMac-menue with coke and fries. Can't think of anyone more generous than Amayastars. Makes me sad when people show so little appreciation for an almost free BigMac-menue per year.

Re: Where are the "amazing" promotions promised by Daniel Negreanu ?

I can't wait! Each passing day this year means the next day is more likely to be the day that Amaya do something good. Whatever it is, its gonna be amazing! I am so ready for this! Props to Amaya and NEGREANU for this, whatever it is, I am psyched and will continue to pay rake on Negreamayastars knowing that there's gonna be some amazing changes around the corner!

Normally, I am pretty neutral on the whole PS/Amaya thing. I can see both sides but OP has a point.

Crickets. From Daniel and Pokerstars.

Daniel or a PokerStars representative should hop in the thread and explain.

Come on Daniel, its just replying to a simple question on 2+2, what could go wrong? 2+2ers will accept your response, give it some impartial and reasoned thought and move on as always.

ps pitch-forks and a portable gallows for sale, pm me.

Re: Where are the "amazing" promotions promised by Daniel Negreanu ?

Op is correct

Daniel was so excited at what was coming to recreational players. Was expecting cash bonuses, etc. It was supposed to be great for the games!

Surely it wasn't a cash grab with nobody getting anything

By "amazing promotions" Daniel must have meant his crappy "KidPoker" PokerStars fauxumentary being promoted on Netflix.

I don't remember him saying that on the podcast. Do you recall approximately when (timestamp) it was said?

Okay. I'm at 59:00 when Ansky hops on, and he's talking about maybe there could be some things that would be beneficial to somebody. Not very strongly worded.

You don't deserve any.

As a community you've proved yourselves useless, ineffective and having zero leverage versus the pokersites when you all failed simple boycotts and unity on the first hurdles.

Any sane business would be reluctant to give anything away to such a powerless group that eats into their profits.

Re: Where are the "amazing" promotions promised by Daniel Negreanu ?

I had a fun idea for a video, but I think OP was just exaggerating.

1:04:54
- "It's empty words when I can just say to you guys, like, 'Oh yeah, good stuff's coming.' I realize that. I actually feel stupid even saying it. I happen to know, based on what I've been told, that this is something that is planned. But again, I can't guarantee that it happens, of course, because, you know, it hasn't yet."

Re: Where are the "amazing" promotions promised by Daniel Negreanu ?

OP was clearly confused by Daniel's language. Daniel was referring to the amazing promotion he was going to receive from Amaya if he could sell players on the changes.

Flatrate hookers and coke would be my guess....but could as well be a voucher for a hair-transplantation.
