Daniel Negreanu Resolves To Top Money List In 2012

Each year Daniel Negreanu posts his poker goals for the year ahead, and counted amongst his ten aspirations for 2012 is earning more than $1 million from tournament cashes, as well as regaining the number one spot on poker’s ‘All-Time Money List.’
The 37 year-old has at least a good chance of cashing for more than $1 million this year, having accomplished that at least two out of the past three years. In 2009, Negreanu earned $1,224,895, in 2010 just $683,825, but in 2011 he was back on track again with $1,534,367, and this year has already finished 5th in the $100,000 PCA Super High Roller Event for $250,900.
As to how much of that money will show up as a profit is another matter. though, and as Negreanu explains:
“Including the massive $1 million buy in One Drop event at the WSOP this year, as well as going down to Aussie Millions for at least another $100k, I could spend as much as $2 million in buy ins this year.”
Consequently, Negreanu will be selling pieces of his action for certain events, such as the $1 million WSOP event, in which he hopes to sell $600,000 worth of himself. As he explains:
“I am considering doing it via twitter and Full Contact Poker, allowing people to buy a piece of me for as little as $120! If that happens, I’ll obviously post details.”
As for topping poker’s All-Time Money List, Daniel Negreanu last accomlished that in January last year, after finishing 2nd at the PCA Super High Roller event for $1 million to wrestle the lead from the then leader Phil Ivey.
Unfortunately for Negreanu, just two months later US poker legend Eric Seidel won the National Heads-Up Poker Championship (NHPC) for $750,000 to claim the top spot. Seidel then went on to enjoy a bumper year in which he won $6,530,153 to take his career earnings to $16,885,167, ahead of Negreanu now in 2nd spot on $14,901,459.
Negreanu’s other goals for 2012 also include winning a WSOP bracelet and having a better year than Jason Mercier, all of which can be found here on the Canadian pro’s Full Contact Poker blog.
