A victory in the $300K Super High Roller Bowl VII for $3,312,000 saved Daniel Negreanu from having a disastrous year on the felt, his overall profit for 2022 coming in at $1,625,545.
KidPoker recently posted his results for the year on Twitter, an annual undertaking that the Poker Hall-of-Famer has committed to in the name of transparency. DNegs is under no obligation to reveal such figures, but does so willingly, giving his fans (and haters) more fodder for adulation (or envy).
Last year saw Negreanu play in 107 events. He cashed in 23 of those tournaments, landing in the money at a 21.5% clip.
Daniel laid out $3,224,564 in buy-ins and won $4,875,609. That equals $1,625,545 in profit. That raw total excludes other variables such as swaps, selling pieces of his action, expenses, and paying taxes.
Followers of DNegs are aware that his successful 2022 didn't come easily. The 48-year-old couldn't catch a break during the summer WSOP festival. His daily YouTube vlog became painful to watch for his many devoted fans, loss after loss mounting to the tune of a whopping $1.1 million in the red.
A selfie stick became collateral damage during the debacle when a runner runner flush sent Daniel to the rail in the 2022 WSOP $250,000 Super High Roller. In perhaps a fitting end to his summer, Negreanu suffered a busted up and bloody hand when rumors that an active shooter was in the area created panic and chaos at the poker fest.
Of course, DNegs had a number of cashes throughout the 2022 WSOP - a dozen, actually. But most were of the min-cash variety, save for fifth place in the $7,777 online event that was good for $88,081.
But all that disappointment went out the window after KidPoker scooped $3.3 million and the title in the $300K Super High Roller Bowl VII. It gave him his eighth winning year out of the last 10.
Negreanu also posted his results for the last decade. Check out the totals below. The big score of more than $7 million in 2014 came from a runner-up finish in the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop at the WSOP for $8,288,001.
DNegs now sits in 3rd place on the all-time tournament money list, just shy of the $50,000,000 plateau, per the Hendon Mob database. His next decent cash will likely get him there.
