He may be the biggest money earner in the game of poker but the past two years have been duds for Kid Poker.


Now accepting most forms of crypto-currencies

This from Daniel Negreanu himself.

Posting on his blog, Negreanu noted that he's had back-to-back losing years in 2016 and 2017.

I felt like I had a decent year in terms of results, but when you break down the numbers into an actual profit vs loss, I essentially broke even!
Buyins: $2,874,164
Payouts:$2,792,104
Profit: -$86,140

Considering my average buy in on the year was $40,481 this is about as close as you can get to breaking even. In fact, after my $936,000 score I was up on the year but played a couple of the one day $25k events at Bellagio, rebought a few times, and ended the year in the red.

Nobody should be shedding a tear for Negreanu....not yet at least.

Over a five year period, Negreanu has recorded a $8,733,074 profit.
