Daniel Negreanu Joins Other Pros In Making His Return To Canada
Thursday, 1. September 2011

With the collapse of the US online poker market this past April, many of the top professional poker players have made the decision to relocate themselves to other countries. After having been living in the US for many years, the Canadian poker pro and legend Daniel Negreanu has officially returned to Canada.

Negreanu has settled in Toronto and will be making his return to online poker and can be found playing at PokerStars. For a number of years, Negreanu has been the main pro player in the PokerStars stable and his image has donned their homepage. Daniel Negreanu has four World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets, two World Poker Tour (WPT) Championship titles and is ranked 2nd in total career earnings. He is widely agreed to be amongst the very best players in the world. Negreanu made his entrance onto the world poker scene back in 1998 when he became the youngest WSOP bracelet winner in history, a record he kept until 2004.

Industry analysts widely agree that Negreanu’s return to Canada and the world of online poker will go a long way towards boosting Canada’s online poker market. Negreanu joins a number of well known pros in making the move to Canada; including, Phil Galfond and Olivier Busquet.

While plenty of Canadian players will be looking to sign up with PokerStars, others might be looking to play at an online poker room that has had no connection with Black Friday or any of the other legal happenings of this past year. Many of the larger online poker rooms, such as PartyPoker and 888Poker, will most likely be looking to sponsor Canadian pros in order to attract a larger share of the local market.

While PokerStars did run into legal difficulties, they acted quickly in order to pay back their US players unlike Full Tilt Poker who has had their accounts frozen and left their players in the lurch to the tune of over $100 million.
