This favorable image has helped him to secure a sponsorship deal with Pokerstars.

Daniel did not grow up in a wealthy family and he did not enjoy luxury as a kid. His parents were immigrants from Romania, who have moved to the United States hoping to find a better life there, but ended up living in Toronto, the most populous city in Canada. There, his father found a job as an electrician and earned additional cash from selling confectionery. The boy was not particularly good at school and his parents often had to listen to the complaints from the school principal and teachers. Apparently, they were unsatisfied with Daniel’s behavior and him “ignoring the school rules”. Even though it did not look like he is going to make it as a scientist or a lawyer, Negreanu has always felt confident about his future and knew that he is going to be rich. In fact, the boy has told his mom that one day he’d be so rich, he’d build “a house of Popsicle sticks”. Looking at the current Daniel Negreanu net worth it is clear that he could build a house out of way pricier materials than Popsicle sticks…
But how Negreanu chose the profession which eventually turned him into a multi-millionaire? How come he ended up as a professional poker player? Well, as the star has admitted in one of his interviews, he has been playing Black Jack, pool and doing all sorts of random gambling since an early age. Then some friends have introduced him to poker (if only they knew how big of a favor they were doing for Daniel at the time…). According to Daniel, by the time he turned 18 he was already a winning player, spending 40 hours per week by the poker table. Then, when he turned 22 years old, he decided this is exactly what he is going to do with the rest of his life. Looking at the current Daniel Negreanu net worth, it seems like he has made the right decision.
