And there have always been world-class stars from other sports who have caught the poker bug and jumped into the wild fray of this phenomenon that we all know and love … POKER!

The Eurythmics said “Sweet dreams are made of this, Who am I to disagree?” I totally agree but my version is slightly different. Mine goes like this: “Poker dreams are made of this, who are you to disagree? Travel the world and the seven seas playing poker and you may find what you’re looking for.”

These guys have certainly had their poker dreams come true.

Daniel NegreanuDaniel Negreanu the “Poker Kid” has won six World Series of Poker bracelets and two World Poker Tour championship titles. As of 2014, his poker dreams have provided him with live tournament winnings that exceed $29,750,000

Phillip Hellmuth, the “Poker Brat,”  dropped out of the University of Wisconsin to pursue his dreams of a poker career. As of 2014, one could say that his dreams paid off. He has total winnings of more than $18,175,000 and has earned an incredible 13 WSOP bracelets. He still dreams of being the greatest poker player of all-time. By many people’s standards he has already seen that dream come true at the poker tables.

There are a lot more players who have traveled the world and the seven seas looking for something, and who have found that what they were looking for was the right cards, at the right time, at the poker tables. Many of them, men and women, too many to mention here,  certainly know that poker dreams are made of this. Who are we to disagree?
