Daniel Negreanu is a poker giant with many televised poker appearances, massive wins, and a pleasant personality. His skills at the tables and ability to talk in front of the cameras have made Negreanu wealthy.
While he may not be the frequent company rep like some other players (Phil Hellmuth), Negreanu knows how to profit from his brand. That image has come with some nice dividends.

Poker Winnings and Key Tournaments
“Kid Poker” burst onto the poker scene in the late 1990s. Growing up in Toronto, Canada, Negreanu often played poker with friends. In the 1990s, that included trips to Las Vegas, where he has admitted he went broke a few times.
- But by the late ‘90s, Negreanu had honed his skills. His first WSOP bracelet came in 1998 in a $2,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em event for $169,460.
- Five more bracelets would follow, and he now has more than $42 million in lifetime live tournament winnings.
That record has included some of the following massive scores –
- In 2013, he won the WSOP Asia Pacific Main Event for more than A$1 million.
- The same year, Negreanu won the WSOP Europe €25,600 High Roller for €725,000.
- At the $1 million Big One for One Drop in 2014, a runner-up finish scored the Canadian pro more than $8 million.
Beyond the WSOP, there have been several other big scores and final table appearances. The World Poker Tour has been a big part of that as well.
In 2004 Negreanu scored two titles for a total of $2.8 million. He also has two runners-up, and three third-place finishes on the tour.
As one of the best players in the game, Negreanu is a feared opponent at the tables. That image has been good for his bank account.
Other Income Outside Poker
Make no mistake, Negreanu is a poker player first. He loves the game, ranging from tournaments to massive cash games to high stakes heads-up challenges. He staged a well-reported heads-up battle with Doug Polk in 2020-21.

Negreanu’s fame and personality also make him a target for companies looking to grow their brands. He’s been the face of two different online poker sites for almost the last two decades. It’s a good bet Negreanu has been handsomely rewarded for his work with these companies.
Negreanu has also authored several books on strategy and has even made a few movie and television appearances. Being comfortable in front of the cameras, Negreanu has also produced poker vlogs in recent years, especially from the WSOP.
That has also expanded to streaming some of his online poker play. In 2018, Masterclass asked Negreanu to produce a series of training videos, and they remain popular among users.
An avid hockey fan, Negreanu might have considered becoming a minority owner of the Vegas Knights. That deal never materialised, but he remains a big fan of the team.
When it comes to brand representation and business interests, Negreanu appears to tailor his image to mostly poker ventures. Representing online poker companies has been a significant part of his life.
That approach, along with huge wins on the poker felt, have undoubtedly added to his bottom line.
