Daniel Negreanu Net Worth $50 Million
From a very young age, Daniel was interested in poker, and started playing seriously at the age of 16. Even as a child, he was ambitious and had the goal of become rich someday. He didn’t graduate from high school, instead choosing to find places to play poker – various Casinos and illegal games in Toronto. Once he had accumulated enough money, he travelled to Las Vegas (Daniel was 22 at the time) hoping that this would help him become a professional player. Unfortunately, things didn’t go very well and he was forced to return home and try again.

While these appearances didn’t add much to his net worth, it proves how successful he has become over the years.
