It has been a whirlwind rekindling of an old romance for Kid Poker, after breaking up with longtime partner Marisa Rachelle Rodney during a miserable summer at the WSOP. He revealed the split during one of his many blogs, viewers wondering why Marisa was unusually absent from recent videos.
DNegs’ has been to the wedding altar before, of course, a 2-year long marriage to Lori Lin Weber ending in divorce in 2007.
His list of ex-lovers include Evelyn Ng, who was also with Negreanu way back in the days before he became a superstar of the poker world…
…as well as a reported affair with Hungarian beauty queen Krisztina Polgar, who has posed for numerous high-profile magazine shoots and took up poker too…
It’s rare for Negreanu not to be in a relationship actually, although he did take part in Millionaire Matchmaker back in 2013 to try to find true love. He stated at the time: “What I’m looking for is a woman who treats me well and doesn’t lie to me.” You an check out how his date went below!
Despite a torrid time in some of them, it was just a couple of months after his summer split that Leatherman was back on the scene…

Leatherman disappeared from the Vegas poker scene for quite a while after splitting with Daniel. She said the partying was too much for her. A little older and a little wiser now, perhaps, the pair seem genuinely happy together.
Daniel stated previously on his DAT podcast: “We met when we were very young, (well, she was young) and we had our experiences in life.”
“I was in a relationship, and she was in one until the stars aligned,” adding that: “Amanda and I have been hanging out a lot, and she’s making me really, really happy…”
Happy enough to pop the big question at New Year!
