Las Vegas' Daniel Negreanu has a new role to play during this year's World Series of Poker, which runs through Aug. 10 at the Rio:

Professional mentor.

During last year's World Series, Negreanu devoted his time away from the tournament tables to cash games, including a series of high-limit heads-up matches.

This time around, he'll serve as a teacher, adviser and all-around poker guru to 27-year-old Brian Fidler of Derby, Conn., who won the right to become Negreanu's protege through an online competition.

By winning a series of poker tournaments sponsored by the Web site, Fidler earned entry to four $10,000 buy-in live tournaments along with lessons from Negreanu, long recognized as one of the game's top professionals.

Fidler didn't make much noise in the World Poker Tour's Mirage Showdown in May, his first big event under Negreanu's tutelage.

The protege did his teacher proud in his second try, placing second in a field of 110 players to earn $206,800 in the World Series of Poker Circuit tournament at Harvey's Lake Tahoe earlier this month.

Fidler hopes to replicate that success in the World Series. He plans to enter the main event, the $10,000 buy-in no-limit Texas hold 'em world championship, and split his remaining buy-ins among smaller, preliminary events at the Rio with buy-ins ranging from $1,500 to $2,500.

"It's been an amazing experience, and I expect it to get even better from here," said Fidler, a hedge fund accountant. "This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
