Daniel Negreanu has been heavily scrutinised after he allegedly used the expletive ‘c***’ in a recent interview with Poker uk.The four letter curse was directed towards female Ultimate Bet pro and sibling of Howard Lederer, Annie Duke.
At the start of the penultimate day, Daniel was pretty much a lock to make the final table, so that was lucky, and it was also lucky that Daniel was really attracted to a girl () who happened to be a good friend of mine.
I’m pretty sure he mostly just wanted to fly her out, but Daniel’s a super generous guy, so I don’t want to take away from that, but I think he wisely came to the conclusion that his chances would be better if he told her she could bring a friend.
Open-minded Daniel has never been afraid to voice his opinion, but the word used to describe Duke was far from diplomatic.
Tension arose when Negreanu and Duke disagreed over the existence of the ladies event at the recent World Series of Poker.
Despite claiming men and women are equal at the felt, Duke, in sync with her UB marketing image, champions herself as the ‘best female poker player in the world’ on her website.
Negreanu went on to say, ‘how offensive are you, you f***ing c***? Daniel’s attack has polarised opinion amongst poker circles.
You wore a unique costume to the final table to rail Negreanu, namely Alan from The Hangover. I had just started on The Big Game at that time and I had been working something like 13 or 14 straight days.
My last day of voiceover for a while was due to be just before Halloween weekend, so I had spent a couple weeks trying to put together this costume. If I can’t do a costume right, I don’t do it at all.
