    He's still good, but has also been riding that Pokerstars money.

    The problem is that the competition at the top has greatly improved, so he's probably -EV in those high rollers at this point, except the ones which are rich businessman heavy.

    Hoping he and his wife say bye to poker, social media and all that shit. Go enjoy doing whatever they want to.

    He will learn quickly that wont go well unless he get Party to sponsor him and be an affiliate or something
    Daniel Negreanu will not be able to get sponsored by another online poker business for at least two to five years. He signed an NDA and a non-compete clause which I'm sure are in effect.

    PokerStars doesn't really promote their "team pros" as they once did. If you go to the main PokerStars website, they don't promote anyone at all. Various games of online poker, online casino, sports betting. The business of promoting the big time pro is over.

    If PokerStars is looking to sponsor somebody cheap maybe they can sponsor Negreanu's Jamaican friend.

    Is letting a contract run out the same as being fired?

    We don't know if he let the contract run out.

    In fact, it's MUCH more likely Stars let it run out and won't renew him (or severely dropped his pay to where it wasn't worth it for him to continue).

    Also, given that he originally signed with them on 6/11/07, him being dropped from Stars was close, but not exactly at what was likely the end-of-contract date of June 10.

    I'm guessing that they probably just agreed to mutually end the contract slightly early, once it was decided for sure that he wasn't coming back.

    I called it a "firing" because clearly they didn't want him anymore -- at least not anywhere near his current price. He would have likely stayed for eternity if he received anywhere near what they've been paying him.

    Isn't he the last rep from before they went public who was still around?

    I heard he had equity when they went public and did very well there.

    Why this company would give him equity is probably a more interesting story. I also donít understand why a company like Pokerstars whom is presumably paying millions of dollars a year in processing fees doesn't take cryptocurrency. I mean wtf....

    Daniel talks about this is in length on his new podcast, including SNE situation. He also discusses the WSOP shares debacle.
