Daniel Negreanu - Profile

Daniel Negreanu – or Kid Poker as he is affectionately known – is one of the most exciting and successful poker players in the world. At the age of 24 he won his first World Series of Poker bracelet ($2000 Pot Limit Hold’em in 1998). He is currently ranked third in the all time career earnings list (behind Erik Seidel and Phil Ivey). His live tournament winnings exceed $14 million.

Negreanu has won 4 WSOP bracelets in total, and has 23 WSOP final table appearances. In addition to these impressive figures he has won 2 World Poker Tour titles (both in 2004). These victories earned him the prestigious title Player of the Year by Card Player Magazine and the WSOP Player of the Year.

Negreanu is one of the most well-recognised poker players because of his ubiquity on television shows and his all-round demeanour which is almost always positive and chirpy. He is renowned for his eccentric style – he plays hands other players wouldn’t dream of- and his love of bluffing. He often stars on Late Night Poker, Poker After Dark, High Stakes Poker and Poker Superstars.

In 2008 Negreanu released Power Hold’em Strategy, a book which took its basis from Doyle Brunson’s Super/System. The book includes contributions from some of poker’s greatest players – Todd Brunson, Erick Lindgren and Paul Wasicka, as well as a section by Negreanu himself. Negreanu is always keen to be a proactive force in teaching others poker and poke strategy. He regularly writes a column for Card Player Magazine and has his own blog which offers readers daily updates on his poker news.

Negreanu’s philanthropic work plays a major role in his life. He is the founder of the annual ‘Big Swing’ charity golf event (golf is a notorious pastime for the poker pros these days). He also makes frequent appearances at charity events such as Ante Up For Africa, which raised money for Darfur.

Away from the poker tables Negreanu can be seen in a number of films. He appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as a poker player, as well as starring in The Grand and Lucky You. He also appeared in the Katy Perry music video, Waking Up in Vegas.
