It's hard to imagine that one of the poker world's most recognizable faces, Daniel Negreanu, has yet to actually win a World Series of Poker main event. In that regard, he's like the Dan Marino of the poker world, amassing more money than any single player outside of WSOP champions Jamie Gold, Joseph Hachem, and Phil Hellmuth.

To date, Negreanu has won four World Series of Poker bracelets and $10,400,000 in live tournament winnings.

The Toronto born player is looking to change that as he continued to participate in the World Series of Poker Europe Wednesday evening. Negreanu was one of ten players still alive by 7 pm EST. A total of nine players would be vying for the £868,800 at the final table on Thursday. That's $1.2 million converted into dollars.

Negreanu has been named "Favorite Poker Player" at Card Player Magazine's Player of the Year Awards Gala in February 2006 and, in 2008, Gambling911.com's Jenny Woo named Negreanu among her top 10 sexiest poker players of the year.

Here were your chip leaders as of Thursday evening:

1. John Juanda 1,325,000

2. Stanislav Alekhin 1,230,000

3. Daniel Negreanu 1,000,000

4. Ivan Demidov 990,000

5. Robin Keston 884,000

6. Peter Neff 480,000

7. Scott Fischman 420,000

8. Bengt Sonnert 400,000

9. Toni Hiltunen 400,000

10. Chris Elliott 151,000
