Daniel Negreanu is definitely one of the nicest guys out there and, to see him doing this further endorses that fact. I hope that he can raise an awful lot of money for a very good cause

It is always nice to see tournaments organized for causes like that.
It helps the people by knowing that there are some actually thinking about them.
You can say it is not a big deal, but even small moves like this count. Better than nothing.

daniel negreanu makes a good deed with some poker names or not. I have the impression that it is not his first deed of this kind. It is good if the deceased relatives receive some extra money to be able to use them. The government should give more money for such things. Maybe Trump will grant if someone will ask for it.

charity from famous people is always good ... of course the coolest of such people is Bill Gates .... he donates to charity very much .... of course for him it does not bear any tangible losses but the very fact that he spends for charity a lot of money is very cool ... charity is generally a good thing

It's a great news. I always liked Daniel Negreanu's style of poker play, and felt that he was a good man. Now we have a clear evidence of that. I wish him good luck in future , especially at the poker tables.

And WHAT I SPEAK a guy like DANIEL and one between centemas because he has the sensitivity to do something like that without thinking too much or for marketing he does it from the heart and this is reflected in his person we do not see many poker players caring about the others because in the great mairia are people already successful in their lives and often are well miserable parables DANIEL beautiful work
