Daniel Negreanu is probably the most recognized
Canadian poker player
out there. He can be frequently found on TSN playing in the
WSOP and WPT poker tournaments. The four WSOP
bracelets that he won were for a $2000 PL Holdem tournament
in 1998, a $2000 H.O.S.E tournament in 2003, and he won
$2000 Limit Holdem tournaments in 2004 and 2008. He
was the youngest WSOP bracelet winner, when he won his first
WSOP bracelet in 1998. Daniel Negreanu is a poker
player that has a good read on people, which helps his game
a lot. Many times he will see how his opponent will
react to certain plays and will usually have a pretty good
idea how far behind or ahead he is on his hand.
Sometimes his reading skills are so good, he can guess the
opponents exact hand.
Daniel started gambling at a young age. He also mentored Evelyn Ng, who was his girlfriend at the time. By the age of sixteen, he had already knew how to play poker and was hustling at the poker tables. He dropped out of school to start playing poker, just a few credits short of finishing. He played at the local Ontario casinos until he turned 21 and gave Las Vegas a chance, but it wasn't long before he was back in Ontario to build his bankroll back up.
