Celebrated for being ‘Miss Earth Hungary 2008,’ the 24 year old beauty also learnt to play poker from ex-boyfriend Hungarian Poker Stars pro Richard Toth.
It's also not surprising then, based on both reputation and tournament success, that Poker has chosen Negreanu to represent them as one of their elite sponsored pros.In 1999, the Kid took down the United States Poker Championship.Around this time, success started to catch up with Daniel.In the Quadjacks interview posted earlier, Daniel Negreanu also talked a bit about his personal life, which seems to have taken a twist since the World Series.
