Who are the Faces Behind the WSOP.com Screen Names?

You may not even realize when you’re facing a big name pro during the WSOP online poker series. That’s because only screen names are shown on the poker site. But we’ve compiled a lengthy list attaching the real names of familiar faces to their internet monikers.

The World Series of Poker is officially underway, although the series is quite different than the past 50 years. Due to COVID-19, the WSOP was moved to WSOP.com for 31 bracelet events, and 54 more on GGPoker until Sep. 6.

Organizers of poker’s most popular annual festival still hope for a live series in Las Vegas in the fall. But that’s all contingent on the continued spread of the coronavirus. For the time being, the poker community is focused on the face-less online poker series.

Online Poker Screen Names Revealed

If you happen to notice “philivey” is seated at your WSOP.com table, you aren’t facing Phil Ivey. Instead, your opponent is actually Ari Engel, who snagged the screen name. Daniel Negreanu’s moniker, however, is quite easy to figure out. DNegs is, predictably, “DNegs.”
