Daniel Negreanu joined what was potentially the final poker game together for a group of friends before they depart for college.

Daniel Negreanu was a guest player over the weekend in a home poker game involving recently graduated high school students. “Kid Poker” was walking his dogs when a teenager in a suit approached him and asked if he would take part in what could potentially be the friend group’s last poker game together before they depart for college.

Negreanu proceeded to post a poll on Twitter to ask the public whether or not he should join. The results were overwhelmingly in favor of the 49-year-old attending, with more than 27,700 people voting.

He proceeded to drop in with some GGPoker merchandise and took part in a $0.25/$0.50 game. The Poker Hall of Famer ended the night by going all-in, posting the final hand on Twitter:

Despite finishing in the black, Negreanu gave back all of his winnings to the teenagers. He received plenty of praise on social media for being a great ambassador for the game of poker.
