The latest invention by the only 24/7 poker channel out there, Poker Central, offers contestants a chance to receive a phone call from their favorite pro answering a question they asked on Twitter during the week. They’ve already completed their Ask the Poker Pros segments with Phil Hellmuth and Antonio Esfandiari, and the pro of this week is none other than Daniel ‘KidPoker’ Negreanu.
Ask the Pros Segment
The idea of this Poker Central’s contest is to offer fans a chance to ask an interesting question to some of the biggest names in poker and, if they get picked, they will receive a direct phone call from the respective pro, answering the question in detail.
All you need to do to participate is ask your questions on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #AskThePokerPros. Your entry will be automatically added to the contest and three most interesting and daring questions will be picked up. These three lucky fans will then get a surprise phone call and receive the answer.
Have something to ask ‘KidPoker’? This is your chance!
There are two more days left to send out your tweets asking Daniel Negreanu that one question you always wanted to ask. There are really no rules: you can ask anything you want, there are no restrictions, but you need to get creative to have your question picked from the hundreds of tweets already out there. If you need some inspiration, here’s a few interesting ones already out there:
Can you tell us about a time you felt like quitting poker and how you dealt with it? @PokerCentral @RealKidPoker #AskThePokerPros

@RealKidPoker what’s the single best piece of advice you could give to us juniors on the way up? #AskThePokerPros

Dan, have you ever folded pocket aces preflop? #askthepokerpros @PokerCentral @RealKidPoker

You can check out all the Ask the Poker Pros entries on this page to make sure the question you want to ask hasn’t been asked by someone else already. Once the contest closes on 26th of July, keep your phones close at all times, as the call from ‘KidPoker’ could come in at any time.
Once you ask the question, you will receive a reply from the official Poker Central account with a link to confirm your entry and claim the question as yours. Make sure to follow the link to confirm your participation.
Another Great Initiative by Poker Central
Although we’ve written about Poker Central a few times already, I must once again say kudoz for what they are doing. There is barely anyone out there doing anything to increase the appeal of the game and Poker Central’s shows and initiatives like this make them a real game changer.
There is no doubt, of course, that this is business and that they are also making money from it, but at least they are giving poker fans what they want and need – unlike some other companies that have been purely after the profit lately.
So, get your questions in while there is still time, tweet them @PokerCentral, and make sure to use the hashtag #AskThePokerPros to qualify. Be creative, think outside the box, and you may be the one of few people to receive a personal call from Mr. Negreanu himself!
