Few players have seen so much success in Poker to be named in the Poker Hall of Fame, this is why people like Daniel Negreanu are so popular in the world of Poker. Negreanu had been playing since he was 15 and started winning competitions so early that he is still called the Kid Poker to date.

The Canadian Poker Star has six World Series of Poker bracelets and two World Poker Tour Championship titles. He won his first WSOP bracelet at such a young age that he held the record as the youngest player to win a bracelet for years until another youngster got it off him. Since then, he has won WSOP Player of the Year multiple times and was also named WPT Player of the Year in 2004.

For a player to have seen this much success, he must have put in a lot into preparing and making himself the beast of Poker that he is today. After gathering so many wins, Negreanu has made himself a fortune. In this post, we took a look at the speculations for his net worth and some of the biggest wins of his career.

Daniel Negreanu’s Net Worth

It is almost impossible to accurately calculate a person’s net worth without their permission. The exact number is obtained by subtracting the total cost of their liabilities from the value of their assets. Usually, only the owner has access to all this information.

However, for someone like Daniel Negreanu, who makes a lot of his money publicly, people can estimate his worth at every point in time, even though they may not be exactly accurate. Presently, speculation on the internet places his total net worth at over $70 million.

This number seems realistic for Daniel Negreanu because of the massive amounts we’ve all seen him win in person. He has won up to $22 million from WSOP tournaments, and his total live tournament winnings are above $50 million.

Biggest Wins

Negreanu has been earning money from playing professional poker since 1997 when he won $55,000 with wins at the World Poker Finals and other tournaments. He has won many tournaments between 1997 and now, but these are the biggest wins he has picked up in this period.

  • $8, 288,01 – Big for One Drop

    Interestingly, the Canadian Poker legend did not get the biggest win of his career from winning a tournament, he got it for being the first runner-up. To play in the Big for One Drop, you need to pay the $1,000,000 buy-in requirement. Negreanu got a big cashout in the 2014 edition of the competition, but he missed the huge prize of $15,306,668. He got to heads up with Dan Colman but missed out on the win and had to settle for $8m.

 

  • $3,000,000 – Super High Roller Bowl

    The Super High Roller Bowl is another high-stakes tournament with a $300,000 buy-in requirement. In May 2018, almost like a replay of his 2014 Big for One Drop experience, Daniel Negreanu won the second biggest win of his career by finishing in second place.  Justin Bonomo was the legend that made Negreanu a runner-up again and beat him to the huge $5 million payout. Negreanu got $3 million for coming second.

 

  • $1,770,218 – WPT Five-Diamond World Poker Classic

    In the third edition of the WPT Five-Diamond World Poker Classic, Daniel Negreanu got $1.7 million out of the $5.4 million prize pool by defeating other competitors on the table. He beat Humberto Brenes in the final face-off of the tournament and won the grand prize to record his third biggest win.

 

  • $1,725,838 – $100,000 High Roller No Limit Hold’em WSOP

    Keith Tilson got his first bracelet in this event and won $2,792,406 while Daniel Negreanu came in behind as runner-up. Even though the Canadian star was only in second place, he got a nice consolation prize of $1.72 million.
