Daniel Negreanu makes 6000$ per hour

15 May 2013

Daniel Negreanu is on a roll, and you can tell he is proud of it. In 2013 he isgetting excellent results and statistics, and although the sample is not very large, you can only take your hat off.

In April he won the Main Event of the World Series Asia-Pacific and took a prize of $ 1,087,160. More recently, he reached the final table of the Main Event of the PokerStars Monte-Carlo ® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final and took another $ 420,912 for his 4th position.

With these gains, his live tournament benefits are totaling up to $ 17,897,747. He had a new opportunity to add in the $ 100,000 Super High Roller, but eventually dropped out of prizes.

This opens an interesting debate. Negreanu has won $ 1,557,168 in the 14 events he has played in 2013. In total, he has played 275.54 hours and the average profit comes out to a whopping $ 6,000 per hour.

What is not known is how much Negreanu has invested in buy-ins. It is clear however that in 2013 the numbers are looking great for him. Normally, losses are never shared by players, so we can only know how much they earn. Losses can only be known unless they themselves make it public.

A clear example is Jason Mercier. The Team PokerStars Pro won $ 523,587 in live tournament in 2012. However, closed the year in negative due to travel expenses, buy ins and others. In response, set out to win 1 million dollars in 2013 and has the goal well underway thanks to its 7th in the Main Event of the PokerStars Monte-Carlo ® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final and its current lead in the final table of the Super High Roller.

Negreanu has done its homework, and he is very much close to his wish list for 2013, but could not contain his ego and boasted on Twitter of his good start of the year. Much work remains ahead, Daniel. Becarefull not to spend it all in buyins of high rollers or cash.
