From Young Professional to a Successful Poker Player
The story of Daniel Negreanu starts in Toronto, in 1974. He was born on July 26th, under the sign of the Leo. His roots take us across the ocean, in a small eastern European country called Romania. His parents decided to move to Canada, hoping for a better life, not only for them, but also for the future children.
Daniel grew up as an ambitious boy and was respected by the whole neighborhood. Everybody knew that he could obtain everything that he wanted. His major passions were the probabilities and numbers. At the age of 16, he discovered them both in gambling. He took his first shots at poker and pool hustling. The feeling of competition made him want to become better and better. He started small, by participating at online gambling halls but also charity casinos. As all the games ended in a positive manner for Negreanu, his bankroll was soon boosted. Bear though in mind that poker is one of the few casino games where luck is less important than having a strong skill set and knowledge of the game.
