When it comes to popular poker players, Daniel Negreanu ranks right up there at the top of the list. The five-time bracelet winner currently sits in second on the 2013 World Series of Poker Player of the Year Leader Board with 598.34 points, thanks in large part to winning the inaugural WSOP Asia Pacific (APAC) Main Event back in April.
Surprisingly, Negreanu's success in the WSOP Main Event here in Vegas has been limited. His best performance came back in 2001 when he just missed out on the final table by finishing in 11th place. His next cash wouldn't be until five years later, and the next five years after that. Last year, Negreanu made a deep run before being eliminated by actor Kevin Pollak. Even so, it marked the first time "Kid Poker" had back-to-back cashes, which means this year he's looking to make it three in a row.
