What was so amazing about this, and what thrilled people the most, was that he managed to do this feat in just nine months!
Then, in April of 2014, Daniel won the one hundred thousand euro Super High Roller at the European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo, where he was able to take home over one and a half million euros.
Then, during the 2014 World Series of Poker, Daniel came in 3rd place in the ten thousand dollar heads up event. Right after that, he won The Big One for One Drop and took home well over fifteen million dollars.
That summer, Daniel managed to earn more than a seven-figure to his income. Not only did he end up coming in second place in the fifty thousand euro Super High Roller at the European Poker Tour and took home over eight hundred thousand euros, or one million American dollars, but in September of that same year, Daniel ended up winning the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, where he beat one thousand for hundred and ninety-nine other dedicated and skilled poker players. That day, he took home almost one and a half million dollars.
A Bright Future
Then, the next month following that win, Daniel won the World Poker Tour Alpha Eight Super High Roller for nine hundred and ninety thousand dollars.

It’s not hard to see why Daniel is considered one of the best poker players of all time. More than the fact that he’s skilled at poker, evidenced by his earnings, people who interact with him say he’s a straight-up nice guy and that he’s fun to talk and interact with. He has a kind of friendly attitude, and he also sympathizes with people who lose at poker, so he doesn’t brag and isn’t egotistical about his skills and winnings, either.
