Posted on 26 August 2011 by "T".

Daniel Negreanu - just like many other pros - has left America and moved to Canada in order to play poker online. Negreanu is now located in Toronto and has already taken care of all necessary paper work etc. In his latest blog "Boy Did I Miss Online Poker!" he wrote the following:

"It took a couple days, but I successfully set up shop in Toronto so that I can play on PokerStars again. I already had the Canadian passport, but just like everyone else, I needed to attain the necessary documents then wait for the call from PokerStars security to verify the phone number, and voila! I'm back in action!

I jumped right into some $25-$50 PLO 6 max deep with ante games, and within 5 hands I lost my first buy in HAHA. Had an open ended straight draw/flush draw versus top set and didn't hit. Oh well, it didn't hurt a bit, I was just glad to be playing again."
