A list of goals has been set by the eminent poker pro Daniel Negreanu right at the onset of the New Year. The goals are regarding what he wants to achieve in 2012. One of his most ambitious goals for this year is to win at least $1 million through online poker tournaments. The player once led the All-Time Money List in poker.

Negreanu Establishes Goals at the Beginning of Every Year
This is not the first time that the Canadian poker player established his goals. He has been doing so for the past few years. The players’ aim of winning over $1 million is not unachievable as he already made a good start in the New Year. A few days ago, Daniel made a 5th place finish at the $100,000 worth PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Super High Roller Event. The player cashed in a total of $250,900 through this win.
Committed to Playing Big One for One Drop
Daniel has already committed to playing in a mega event this year, called Big One. The buy-in for the tournament is massive, at a million. The event will be conducted to raise funds for a charitable institution named One Drop. Big One has been scheduled to start on July 1st 2012. The event will be hosted at the Las Vegas based Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Negreanu stated that he plans to spend about $2 million on buy-ins in 2012. Daniel also mentioned that he wants to sell a part of his action in specific events such as the Big One.
Daniel Exceeded the Mark of $1 Million in Poker Tournaments Before
The mark of $1 million was exceeded by the player twice before, in the past 3 years. In 2009, the player took home a total of $1,224,895. The winnings were a little low in 2010. It was about $683,825. However, in 2011, the player again crossed the $1 million mark with tourney winnings worth $1,534,367.
Daniel topped the All-Time Money List in January, 2011. With a 2nd place finish at the Super High Roller Event of PCA last year, the player took the reign over from Phil Ivey who was leading the All-Time Money List till that time.
