John Juanda has said that he bought in for 100 dollars at a 1-3 stud game and just worked his way up from there, moving up in limits as his bankroll allowed. He said that unlike most other poker players, he has never gone broke.

DN was a 40 hour a week grinder for a lot of years before the tourney success.

I think I have heard that he had quite a fortune when he started playing poker.

I think you heard wrong. Here are a few early cardplayer articles that chronicle DN's grinding days:

http://www.cardplayer.com/author/article/all/36/4644

http://www.cardplayer.com/author/article/all/36/7134

The above one is pretty funny - about the first time he met Harman

How about guys like Esfandiari, Laak, Sheikan ?

[/ QUOTE ]

Esfandiari-Poker I believe

Laak-Worked on Wall Street for a while. Then played poker.

Sheikan-Tattoo shops I believe.

[/ QUOTE ]

Didn't Laak play backgammon as well - probably helped his roll a bit. Plus wasn't there an incident with a safe in a New York club. Also, there is the guy who claimed that Laak had a lucrative import/export business between USA and Thailand. Of course, now he has access to half of Sam Simon's fortune.
