Daniel Negreanu is known better for his tournament exploits than his cash game prowess. It is no secret that Negreanu boasts 4 WSOP bracelets and 2 WPT titles. Only Phil Ivey has more career tournament earnings than Negreanu.
Where did this poker legend get his start? Negreanu was a self-described "problem child". He did not enjoy high school and decided to drop out. He was a pool player and that is where he was first introduced to gambling. It was not until age 17 that Negreanu began to play poker.
Negreanu learned poker by watching people play. He watched tight and loose players and adapted his game to include both elements. In 1996, Negreanu turned 21 and moved to Las Vegas with a meager bankroll. He bubbled a satellite into the main event and was devastated.
Daniel went back to Toronto and crushed the $20/$40 Limit Games. When he went back to Vegas he was a loser in the same games. After adapting to the aggressive game play, Negreanu established a large bankroll and was playing as high as $300/$600. Unfortunately, Negreanu started partying more and playing poker less. At the end of 2000, he was bust.
Negreanu took a look in the mirror and decided to take poker more serious. He worked four years, winning tournaments along the way, finally breaking out in 2004. He made the final table in four events of the World Series of Poker, claiming outright victory and a bracelet in the $2000 Limit Hold 'Em Event. His success earned him 2004 World Series of Pokerplayer of the year 2004 honors.
Since then, Daniel has continued to crush tournament poker. In 2007, he signed with Team PokerStars. In 2008, he captured another WSOP title.
In addition to his tournament success, Negreanu has proven himself as a cash game player. Negreanu has appeared on GSN's High Stakes Poker, a televised cash game. In fact, Negreanu was one-outted by Gus Hansen in a $400,000 pot! Hopefully his luck turns around in his own room!
