DANIEL NEGREANU IS one of the most successful poker players in the world, the winner of six World Series of Poker championships who has racked up more than $19 million from live tournament pots.

So sharp is his bluffing that he once went on a TV science show to try to fool a lie detector—and, ultimately, he succeeded.

But until recently, the 39-year-old star put some serious resources into a strategy that most fans know little about.

He hedged his bets, by investing in other poker players.

Real money poker is the final step in the journey of becoming a regular poker player.

After you are tired of playing around with no stakes, switching to online poker for real money is a big step forward.

But when it comes to "real" poker - feeling the rush of a big bluff, making a hero call and taking all of your opponent's chips - online poker for real is the way to go and you can only to it on best real money poker sites.
