Daniel Negreanu and PokerStars Part Ways
Canada and maybe the worlds most famous poker player, Daniel Negreanu and the worlds leading online poker site, PokerStars are parting ways after a 12 year partnership.
Negreanu released a video on twitter thanking the company for their 12 year partnership and for getting the chance to travel the world to play poker, but his life is taking a new direction.
The full video and tweet can be found below:
Negreanu's travel to PokerStars events had been few and far between over the last couple of years. He did travel to the PCA in January of 2018 but was absent in the rest of the EPT's schedule the rest of the year and also missed the PCA this year.
He hadn't taken part in any of the recent big online tournament series that PokerStars has to offer as well, being hurt by the fact that he lives in Las Vegas and would have to travel outside of the US to take part.
Negreanu joins the list of Randy ‘Nanonoko’ Lew, Jaime Staples, and Jeff Gross who have all left representing PokerStars within the last calendar year.
Negreanu still sits in second place on the all time tournament live earnings list with $39.8 million in earnings and probably has the biggest reach amongst poker players with the casual fan. The newly married Canadian pro is getting set for a busy summer with the WSOP on the horizon and is on a quest to take home WSOP Player of the Year honours for the third time.’
