Daniel Negreanu summed up the results of the year
One of the most recognizable poker gamblers in the world, Daniel Negreanu summed up the results of the year on social networks. Statistics confirm that he is still a formidable opponent and can win major tournaments. Negreanu sums up the outcomes every year since 2013, and almost all seasons end for him in the black. Only 2016 and 2017 were unsuccessful for the Canadian player.
The 48-year-old Canadian, also known as Poker Kid or Dnegs, earned his first money in poker back in 1997 at the Orleans Open contest in an event for $ 230. According to The Hendon Mob, Negreanu managed to win his first victory less than a month later. He became the best at the $225 NLHE Heavenly Hold’em held in Los Angeles. For the victory, the Canadian received 18,800 USD. 25 years have passed since then, the GGPoker (PokerOK) ambassador managed to win 6 WSOP gold bracelets and tens of millions of prize money.
Daniel Negreanu’s profit was 1.62 million in 2022. On Monday, he posted a post on Twitter with statistics. He participated in 107 events and got prizes in 23 of them. In total, the player spent $ 3.22 million on buy-ins and won $ 4.87 million.
Negreanu ranks 3rd in the list of the richest players
No poker player can win all the time. There are bad beats, bad decisions, bad bluffs and just bad cards. Negreanu has had ups and downs this year too. For example, in one of the Poker Masters events, he had pocket kings, and his opponent had a pair of jacks. One jack on the flop was enough for Negreanu to fail. However, after that, Negreanu won a super-roller with a buy-in of $ 300,000, earning $ 3.3 million. It was mainly due to this tournament that we managed to get into the plus.
In addition to this super-roller, Negreanu had several tournaments where he received six-figure payouts. He won the PokerGO Cup ($350,000) and one of the Wynn High Roller events ($216,000).
In his statistics, Negreanu displayed the profit received from the prize money. He did not consider the costs of flights, housing or sold shares. But it can be assumed that these costs are easily covered thanks to cooperation with GGPoker, public speeches and books sold.
Daniel Negreanu ranks 3rd in the list of the richest players in poker history. He has won more than 49 million during his career. He is ahead of Brynn Kenney, who has 57 million and Justin Bonomo, who won more than 60 million. As for the ratings, the Canadian is ranked 106 in the CardPlayer table. He finished in 18th place in the Global Poker Index and PokerGO Tour.
