The latest ESPN's Body Issue shocked the poker industry with some of the best poker player's nude photo. As poker players they concealed theirselves to others in poker tournaments so that they can bluff their way to victory, now they have revealed a lot of themselves in this latest publication.

Daniel Negreanu wasn’t overly concerned about stripping off after he learned off the other poker players taking part. He said; “It’s not like they were going to have Patrik Antonius or Gus Hansen there. I can fit in with this group.”

Daniel Negreanu or otherwise known as "Kid Poker" was born on July 26, 1974 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to Ann and Constantin. After ten years, Daniel has achieved possibly the greatest live tournament results record ever seen. In 1998 at just 23 years old, he became the youngest ever player at the time to win a World Series bracelet, after taking down the $2,000 Pot Limit Hold’em event. This was to be the start of an incredible run of success at the WSOP, one that still shows no sign of stopping today.

Negreanu joked; “I worked out I had a nice tan going. I sucked my belly in and I was good to go.”

“This was the only co-ed photo shoot we did for the magazine, so that’s huge,” said Sarah Turcotte, the general editor for ESPN who worked on that particular photo shoot. “To go topless in front of your competitors, that’s tough…But the other players immensely respected Jennifer going into it, having already competed with her in high-stakes poker games.”

The entire photo shoot took about two hours, according to Turcotte.

“The atmosphere was pretty laid back, pretty easy going, a lot of laughing going on,” said Harman. “I felt comfortable. I’ve known these guys forever.”
