Canadian Daniel Negreanu has been on a streak of live tournament cashes in 2013 with four final tables at major events including a victory at the WSOP APAC that paid him about $1.1 million. But we don’t hear too much of Daniel at the online felts, despite being the spokesman for PokerStars.

Daniel Negreanu has won his first major online tournament. Victory in the 39th event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) brought him $216k in prize money.

The event was a 6 max PLO tournament with a $5,200 buy in with a $400k guaranteed prize pool. The high buy in kept the field down to 180 but the guarantee was surpassed with the final prize pool reaching an impressive $900k.

Negreanu’s total career tournament earnings are well over $18 million.
