Daniel Negreanu had a big summer, starting with a divorce from his 12-year relationship with online site PokerStars, and his marriage to poker personality Amanda Leatherman.
In an effort to give his fans a sweat and promote his daily video blog, the 45-year-old Canadian then decided to sell action to the World Series of Poker, dividing up his buy-ins into three categories of low, medium, and high.
All three packages sold out in less than three minutes, but a website glitch allowed the pieces to oversell, leaving Negreanu to issue refunds.
Now, with a month to go before the WSOP Europe series kicks off in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, Negreanu says he is offering those who were left out this summer the opportunity to buy his action at no markup.
I will be offering no markup pieces to those that got shutout at WSOP earlier this year. Details on all that will be available shortly.
I’ll also be resuming the VLOGS for the duration of the series.

Although Negreanu could conceivably drop more than €1.2 million in buy-ins, fans will undoubtedly be eager to buy a piece of the six-time bracelet winner.
Negreanu put together a fantastic summer, cashing 16 times and making four final tables. He narrowly missed out on his seventh bracelet, finishing runner-up in both the $10,000 stud, and the $100,000 high roller.
He cashed for more than $2 million combined, making his investors a nice profit, and as a result, put himself into contention for WSOP Player of the Year honors. He will enter the 15-event series in third place behind Shaun Deeb and Robert Campbell.
