From wiki -

[ QUOTE ]
Daniel dropped out of high school and began his life as a rounder playing at the local charity casinos and looking for illegal games around the city. While in Toronto, Daniel met and began dating Evelyn Ng[2], who would also become a well-known professional poker player. After building up his bankroll, he left for Las Vegas at the age of 21 to pursue his dream of becoming a professional poker player. However, "The Strip" got the better of him and he was forced to move back home to Toronto to rebuild his bankroll.

[edit] Poker career

In 1997 his luck began to change when he won two events at the World Poker Finals at Foxwoods, earning himself $133,600 as well as being named the tournament's best all-around player. Negreanu followed this triumph in the 1998 World Series of Poker by winning $169,460 at the $2,000 Pot Limit Hold'em event and becoming the youngest WSOP bracelet winner in history a record he held until 2004.[3]

Pretty much is along the same lines as everything else I've heard about him being a cash grinder until his big tourney run.

I think PA mentioned somwhere that when he started playing he made 200$ deposit and never got broke. He started playing with Ziigmund and he has gone broke like 100 times. Everytime Zig went broke PA lend him money.

PA would stake Zig in exchange for chest wax. His chest is so smooth sandpaper wouldnt do a damn thing.
