He may be the biggest money earner in the game of poker but the past two years have been duds for Kid Poker.

This from Daniel Negreanu himself.

Posting on his blog, Negreanu noted that he's had back-to-back losing years in 2016 and 2017.

I felt like I had a decent year in terms of results, but when you break down the numbers into an actual profit vs loss, I essentially broke even!
Buyins: $2,874,164
Payouts:$2,792,104
Profit: -$86,140

Considering my average buy in on the year was $40,481 this is about as close as you can get to breaking even. In fact, after my $936,000 score I was up on the year but played a couple of the one day $25k events at Bellagio, rebought a few times, and ended the year in the red.

Nobody should be shedding a tear for Negreanu....not yet at least.

Over a five year period, Negreanu has recorded a $8,733,074 profit.
