“In all-ins, I’ve still been running under equity for two years,” said Negreanu Card player back in October. “Now when people tell me crazy stories about bad racing, I finally believe it, because in my three decades as a pro I’ve never seen anything like it.”

After a brutal summer at the World Series of Poker who saw a seven-figure loss and numerous money bubble disasters in high roller events, Negreanu turned his year around with a massive $3,312,000 win in October Super High Roller bowl.

“Do you know how I was fucked?” he said then too. “Hopefully that will change at some point, and luckily I won that $3.3 million because otherwise I might lose my mind.”

Negreanu closed out his year with another deep run, this time in the whopping $10,000 WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas which had 2,960 attendees. Unfortunately for him, the bad beat curse returned and had to settle for 17th place and $176,200.

But despite the poor run with cold decks, Neidgrano still managed its third most profitable year of the last decade, trailing only $1,963,500 and $7,100,164 won in 2013 and 2014.

His worst year was 2016 when he lost $1,246,693. Overall, she averaged $1,459,695 in profit each year for a total of $13,137,263.
