Daniel Negreanu is easily the most recognizable face in the game. He's also a Team PokerStars Pro, a four-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner, a two-time World Poker Tour champion and third overall on the all-time money list. He's also a member of the greatest soccer team on Earth, the Angle Shooters, but that's one of his lesser accolades.
With over $15.3 million in live tournament earnings and results that could fill a book, it's almost pointless for us to write this bio for Negreanu as it wouldn't do him justice.
Negreanu was one of several players to re-enter this event, but has made his way to a second major final table within a week. Earlier this week, Negreanu joined the chip leader, Justin Bonomo, at the €100,000 Super High Roller final table and went on to finish sixth for €310,000.
In 2011, Negreanu finished runner-up behind fell Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller. He also took fifth in that same event the prior year. Those scores earned him $1 million and $250,900, respectively.
The largest score on Negreanu's record is from 2004 when he won the World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic for over $1.77 million. Winning this event today would eclipse that and finishing in the top spot would give him his fourth $1 million result.
Negreanu will enter the final table with 660,000 in chips and is fourth overall.
