In 1998 a 23-year-old kid from Toronto made the poker headlines as the youngest ever WSOP bracelet winner. The 'Kid Poker' nickname was born and has stuck. In 2014, the kid turned 40 and Daniel Negreanu became the youngest member of the Poker Hall of Fame!
This was also the year when his runner-up finish in the Big One for One Drop took him to the very top of the all-time money list with more than $30,000,000 in live tournament earnings.
The world’s winningest live tournament pro and winner of 6 WSOP bracelets is also considered by many to be the greatest ambassador of the game of all time and is one the most colorful and popular personalities in the modern world of poker. Known to be a big talker at the tables, the Pokerstars Team Pro is among the most outspoken members of the community and never afraid to take a stand and ‘give his two cents’ on any important development or controversy in poker.
Negreanu has appeared in many popular TV shows, movies, and even music videos, among which X-men Origins, Lucky You, and Katy Perry’s Waking Up in Vegas.
