Daniel Negreanu finished in second place in the $1 million Big One for One Drop at the 2014 World Series of Poker for $8.2 million, making him the highest-earning tournament poker player in history. Negreanu now has $29.8 million in live tournament earnings, surpassing former money-leader Antonio Esfandiari who skyrocketed to the top of the list when he won the inaugural Big One for One Drop in 2012. Negreanu wasn't able to go all the way in this event, that honor belonged to Dan Colman, but he did take a few minutes after the heads-up match to tell the media what this finish meant to him. Negreanu talks about his legacy in poker, raising $4.6 million for One Drop and the one moment in this event that truly got his heart pumping.
