“Poker is not a team sport. It’s every man for himself.”


  • Six-time WSOP gold bracelet winner on three continents
  • Won over $50 million in live ranking tournaments alone
  • 4th on the All-Time Money List
  • Most successful player in Canadian history
  • Won WPT, SCOOP and WCOOP titles


Daniel Negreanu is perhaps the most recognisable face in poker. The Canadian, who has at points represented both PokerStars and GGPoker, is widely known as a poker legend. A member of the exclusive Poker Hall of Fame, Negreanu has won six World Series of Poker bracelets, two World Poker Tour titles and countless other major titles on his way to amassing a fortune at the felt.

When he just four years old, the young ‘Kid Poker’ had the premonition that he would be rich. Today, four decades on, perhaps no-one has made as much money in winnings, sponsorships and image rights from the game of poker than Daniel Negreanu. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Negreanu left school at 15 and began playing poker, pool and hustling for bets on sports before eventually narrowing in on poker as a pursuit.

Heading to Las Vegas, Kid Poker would win six WSOP bracelets, albeit with only four of them coming in Sin City. Negreanu’s other bracelet wins were in Australia, where he won the WSOPA Main Event for over a million Australian dollars, and in Europe, where he won the most recent of his WSOP for $750,000 in 2013.

When he became the face of PokerStars, Negreanu proved what many already knew, that he was just as comfortable off-the-felt as he was on it. Popular, provocative, peerless, ‘Kid Poker’ was the man and at the height of the first poker boom, his face was the first you’d see prooting the market leader in the game in PokerStars. Having left them in the early 2020s, Negreanu was snapped up by GGPoker and his presence as Global Ambassador has doubtless contributed in a major way to them

In other events, Negreanu has crushed opponents like Doug Polk in High Stakes Duel, finished second to Dan Colman in the 2014 Big One for One Drop for his biggest score of $8.2 million and in 2022, took down the Super High Roller Bowl VII for a score of $3.3 million. Negreanu’s candid demeanour and video blogging series have endeared him to the poker playing public and he is still the biggest face in the game. Still under 50, it’s hard to see anyone looking like the most successful player of all-time by the time he hangs up his baseball cap and retires.
