PPA members to get advice from Kid Poker

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu is teaming up with the Poker Players Alliance to offer members of the organization another perk.

The poker pro will offer a weekly poker instruction column to all the Poker Players Alliance members. It is another free service the PPA is able to offer its more than one million members.

"We salute Daniel Negreanu and his desire to expand his relationship with the PPA," said Alfonse D'Amato, PPA chairman and former Senator.

"Daniel is one of the best-known personalities in the game of poker. We're delighted he has agreed to work with us. With his support, we're confident that we can grow our organization and assist poker players who want to keep this great American game of skill available to all."

Born in Canada, Negreanu is now a recognized poker superstar across the world. He won his first World Series of Poker bracelet in 1998 and has won two more since. The World Series has been kind to the pro as he's cashed in many events over the years, making the final table of more than a few of those as well.

Kid Poker has also cashed in quite a few World Poker Tour events over the years. Of those, he's made eight televised final tables and in 2004 he won two of the WPT events.

His success has put him among the ranks of the top money earners in the tournament game with nearly $10 million in winnings.

Now PPA members will have access to the knowledge that helped propel Negreanu to the top.

"Each column is packed with great advice for all poker players," said Steven J. Miller, president of Card Shark Media, which syndicates Negreanu's newspaper column. "Each column is fast-paced, well-written and exudes Daniel's engaging personality."

Some of the columns PPA members will receive include: Smart Pre-Flop Raises, Reading Tells Early, Kamikaze All-In Plays, Playing the Dubious K-Q and Exploiting Weak-Tight Players.

According to PPA executive John Pappas, PPA members can sign up to receive the columns at the PPA Web site.

"Simply opt-in and Daniel's always insightful and often humorous poker advice will be delivered by e-mail every week," Pappas said.

"Poker is a great American game that is enjoyed by more than 65 million Americans," said Negreanu.

"I'm glad I can do something extra for PPA members. The grassroots PPA organization will help keep poker legal and available on the Internet, as it should be. I am indeed honored to be working with Senator D'Amato, John Pappas and Steve Miller to help protect the rights of Americans who want to play this great game of skill."
