How did Negreanu get into the poker world?

Negreanu was first introduced to poker by one of his friends at his local snooker center. 

He soon fell in love with it and began hosting private games in the basement. When he was learning the game as a teenager, he would just notice the pattern. 

According to him, he would sit on a bench for an hour and stay quiet, just watching people walk by. 

He would make up stories in his head about who they were, what they were like in high school, whether he liked them, whether he could trust them, and whether would they be honest. 

It wouldn’t matter to him if he was wrong. It was just the case of seeing what he could pick.

He did a handful of jobs, but as soon as the poker took off, it became his only job. 

He made his debut in 1998, and in his first game only, he took home over 130,000 pounds sterling and won a coveted bracelet. 

Negreanu learned a life lesson of understanding that he had to treat it more like a business and that he couldn’t do just loosey-goosey after the money he lent was all gone because it went into the wrong hands.
