TBT: When Daniel Negreanu Was a Bachelor on the Millionaire Matchmaker2 years ago
Whether you’re an old-timer, brand new to the game or one of poker’s young guns, the name Daniel Negreanu is known to everyone.
Now happily married and chasing WSOP gold in the heart of Europe, many may have forgotten that just six years ago Negreanu was still chasing love…
…and the most eligible batchelor in Vegas became a star of the hit TV show Millionaire Matchmaker.
It was a love-lorn DNegs who appeared on the show, fed up with playing the field after a long-term relationship (with his future wife-to-be!) turned sour, and in his own words:
“Looking for is a woman who treats me well and doesn’t lie to me!”
With a room-full of women to choose from, Daniel took the advice of an astrologer and sought out ‘the person who isn’t talking to you… the person who isn’t coming at you.'
That came down to a choice between Lindsay and Cody, a couple of mini-dates seeing Kid Poker choose the former for the show’s finale, the pair jetting off to Vegas for an evening of fun and games.
Negreanu’s long-time haunt the Bellagio was first up, followed by the Cirque du Soleil, Negreanu revealing:
“The more I know Lindsay, the more confident I am I made the right choice.”
Dinner at a vegan restaurant, Russian dancing and blackjack-with-a-kiss topped off a memorable night out for the pair, with Negreanu asking Lindsay to date him ‘exclusively’.
They may have hit it off in Vegas, but the romance was short-lived, Negreanu tweeting a few weeks later:
“For those asking, I am single but me and Lindsay are still friends and she is a GREAT girl as advertised :-).”
Amanda Leatherman was back on the scene, and with both of them a bit older and wiser their romance rekindled, and Negreanu’s bachelor days were ended this year as the couple tied the knot!
