Canadian poker player Daniel Negreanu has a wife! After a series of dating relationships with various women, he got back together with his ex-girlfriend and married her in 2019.
Read on to find details on his past relationships and married life.
Daniel Negreanu's Past Relationships
Negreanu has a long list of women in his dating history. And not only dating, but he was also in a marital relationship for a short time.
He was briefly married to a Michigan girl, Lori Lin Weber. He and Lori ended their marriage within two years of their wedding.
In November 2007, Negreanu wrote a blog to discuss the reason for his separation from the wife. He regretted trying to change his Lori into something she was not. Addressing his fault, he even asserted that the divorce was the right decision for him and Lori as they were still good friends.
After the marriage failed, the player was in a relationship with a fellow professional poker player, Evelyn Ng. Negreanu also dated the Hungarian beauty queen, Krisztina Polgar. But the relationship didn't progress further.
Instead, it came to light that he was dating Marissa Rachelle Rodney, a stylist at Royal Tease Hair and Makeup, in Las Vegas in 2014.
The couple had met at a welfare charity event the same year. Continuing the bond, they celebrated 2018's Valentine's Day in Las Vegas. Both of them even took the beautiful moment on Instagram. Negreanu's girlfriend expressed it was her best Valentine's Day ever.

However, their relationship ended soon and Negreanu announced the break-up through his blog site in late June 2018. As for the root of their separation, he cited incompatibility in their relationship.
Reconnected with Ex-Girlfriend and Married Her
Before being in a relationship with Marissa Rachelle Rodney, Negreanu shortly dated the poker hostess, Amanda Leatherman.
Their relationship didn't work at the time, and the pair parted ways. While talking to the Spportbladet Poker in 2014, the poker champion even stated that he underwent a crisis after the break-up.
But the break-up happened only to strengthen their bond. Negreanu reconnected with Amanda in 2018 and started dating. Thankfully, this time the Toronto native didn't waste time and got on one knee to propose Leatherman in January 2019.
Four months after the engagement, the duo tied the wedding knots at Terranea Resort, Rancho Palos Verdes, California, on May 17, 2019. Negreanu donned a blue suit while his spouse wore a V-neck lace-pattern white wedding gown for the ceremony.
Daniel Negreanu's Bio
Negreanu was born to parents Constantin and Annie Negreanu in Toronto, Canada, on July 26, 1974. Daniel discovered an affinity for gambling, pool hustling, and poker at the age of 16.
He went to Pineway Public Middle School in North York but he dropped out and started playing poker professionally in charities and casinos.
Rookie To Poker Player Of The Year
Negreanu moved to Las Vegas to pursue his dream as a poker player. He had the cycle of winning poker in Toronto and losing it in Las Vegas.
However, he kept on fighting and reached the World Poker Final in 1997 through his perseverance. He got named as the best all-around player.
2004 became the best year for his career so far as he made 11 final tables and won a staggering amount of prizes.
He was named the '2004 Card Player Player of the Year' and the 'WSOP Player of the Year' in 2004.
As of 2020, his total live tournament earnings exceeded $42,053,305. But he lost about $1.2 million to another poker player, Doug Polk in February 2021 during the Doug Polk vs Daniel Negreanu Challenge.
Supports Gay Community
Daniel, who was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2014, is an active supporter of gay rights. One of his Twitter followers asked him about his sexuality in July 2012. He simply answered he wasn't gay and stated that he heavily supports gay rights.
Then in August 2012, Negreanu favored gay rights by expressing that homosexuality was not a sin. He also asserted that all people, gay or straight, were equal for being the creation of God.
