Best man won PLAYER of YEAR
Daniel Negreanu: 2004 Player of the Year
by Jeff Shulman
The Card Player 2004 Player of the Year race came down to the wire again. Daniel Negreanu edged out David Pham and John Juanda, while everyone else finished a great distance behind. Points for the Player of the Year award are based on three criteria: (1) number of players in an event, (2) cost of the buy-in, and (3) place finished at the final table. Negreanu excelled in the large buy-in events, made 11 final tables, had seven cashes of more than $100,000, and made an even bigger name for himself. After a few weeks off from poker, Negreanu had a chance to sit down and discuss the Player of the Year race and what it really means to him.
