In a move that comes as a huge shock to the entire poker community, Daniel Negreanu has resigned as an ambassador for PokerStars, the online poker site he’s represented for 12 years. The decision comes just days before the start of the 2019 World Series of poker and just few weeks after he married Amanda Leatherman.

With this departure, it means that Chris Moneymaker is the last poker Team Pro member remaining from the poker boom era - all other pros already left, with names like Jason Mercier, Barry Greenstein, Vanessa Selbst, Jeff Gross and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier all leaving within the past two years.

Many former PokerStars pros have left for Partypoker, including Gross and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier. More recently, Jaime Staples made the switch.

Negreanu didn’t explain his reasoning for leaving the poker site, “To all to the great people working for the company, I wish you all the best and while this is a goodbye, let’s make it a “see you later,” he wrote.

maybe among the hardcore poker players, but he built a pretty solid image among the casuals. Also hes sellable on TV and has marketing value. Wonder whats the reason behind this, maybe he wanted more money

^ sounds like a negotiation where pstars thought he was bluffing when he said he'd leave if he wasn't given more money. now he probably regrets severing the relationship.

im guessing pstars are just making cuts, they've got a much bigger audience through the UFC deal now and DN prob costs them a few milly a year, which dont really bring them much anymore

it was unacceptable for him that stars didnt raise the rake in 2 months so he left, excellent work ethic as always DN, cheers.

Arguably the biggest joke in poker. If you have half a clue about the game, you know this guy is a muppet

the fact that he left kind of quietly is very weird to me, very likely it wasn't in good terms
