Play with KidPoker on PokerStars

One of the most well regarded professional players in the world today is without a doubt, Daniel Negreanu. Watching him play in a tournament or game it is easy to see why – he is just so likeable.

Unlike many of his unruly poker contemporaries, it would be a rare occasion to see Daniel get out of line and be abusive or just act like a spoiled brat. It is simply not in his nature and the world of poker is better off because of his easy going manner. Whether his laid back personality has anything to do with his huge success as a player is debatable, but one thing is certain, it sure hasn’t hurt.

Daniel Negreanu grew up around the pool halls in Toronto, where he had aspirations of becoming a professional snooker player. As is common in this environment, poker games were never far away and eventually Daniel was lured into the world of poker. His decision to move to Las Vegas was proven to be the right one. When he was only 23 years old in1998, he landed the title of Pot Limit Hold’em Champion and won his first World Series bracelet. He also entered the WSOP history book by being the youngest player to win a bracelet at that time. Since then, Daniel has added three more WSOP bracelets to his treasure chest and well over 100 cashes (25 of them first place) at major events the world over.

Daniel currently makes his home in Las Vegas, where in his down time he enjoys golf, playing video games and shooting pool. In his poker life, he has expanded his resume to include poker author, having written the popular books; Hold'em Wisdom for All Players, More Hold’em Wisdom for All Players and Power Hold'em Strategy. All of Daniels books can be yours for free, just by using your PokerStars FPPs and buying them in the PokerStars VIP store. Another new title for Daniel is “poker instructor” due to his recent endeavor Poker VT, his new online poker school. "This is the kind of resource I wish I'd had first starting out," Daniel says of his latest project. "It's like we're sitting across the table from each other and I'm your personal coach."

With all these accomplishments, it is no wonder why PokerStars recruited Daniel to be on their team of poker pros, where his composed personality and phenomenal success continue to be a beacon for a new generation of poker players.  Daniel also has a new venture on PokerStars where he is striving to match or best Chris Fergusons feat, by turning $10 into $10,000.  He plays many evenings on PokerStars under the nickname “KidPoker” and can be found at the small limit tables following his strict bankroll management rules:

• No moving up in limits until his bankroll has 500 big blinds for the new limit.
• Buy-in to each session should be 1/5th of his current bankroll.
• Only play in NLHE cash games and full ring games when possible.
• If he doubles his bankroll in a single session, he quits at the end of the blinds to protect his bankroll.
• Once at $5/10, at his discretion the number of required blinds may go up.
• At the higher limit games, the buy-in per session may be reduced to 1/10th.
