How Much Did Daniel Negreanu Profit On $4.9 Million In Poker Tournament Cashes?

Daniel Negreanu is one of the best tournament players ever, as evidenced by his no. 3 ranking on poker’s all-time money list. The 48-year-old Poker Hall of Famer has racked up more than $49 million over his storied career, and 10 percent of that was won in 2022.

Negreanu, who has always been transparent about his wins and losses on his popular YouTube vlog, took to Twitter to share his final numbers for the year.

According to his own record keeping, Negreanu played a total of 107 events in 2022, cashing 23 times for a total of $4,875,609.

But as every poker player’s mom will ask, how much did he lose?

The Canadian high roller also shared his total buy-ins, which at an average of $30,136 added up to a whopping $3,224,564!

That left a profit of $1,625,545, minus any expenses, swaps, action sold, and of course, taxes.

Not that Negreanu is complaining after a year that saw him frequently taking the worst side of variance.

“In all-ins, I’ve still run under equity for two years,” Negreanu told Card Player back in October. “Now, when people tell me crazy stories about bad runs, I finally believe them, because in my three decades as a pro I’ve never seen anything like this.”

After a brutal summer at the World Series of Poker that saw a seven-figure loss and numerous money bubble disasters in high roller events, Negreanu turned his year around with a massive $3,312,000 win in October’s Super High Roller Bowl.

“Do you know how f***ed I’ve been getting?” he also said then. “Hopefully, it changes at some point, and luckily I won that $3.3 million because otherwise, I might lose my mind.”

Negreanu closed out his year with yet another deep run, this time in the huge $10,000 WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas which had 2,960 entrants. Unfortunately for him, the bad beat curse returned and he had to settle for 17th place and $176,200.

But despite the running bad through cold decks, Neidgrano still managed his third most profitable year of the last decade, behind only the $1,963,500 and $7,100,164 he won in 2013 and 2014.

His worst year came in 2016 when he lost $1,246,693. Overall, he has averaged $1,459,695 in profits each year for a total of $13,137,263.
