Daniel Negreanu isn’t a player who evades the spotlight. Surely, a remarkable inverse is valid; he delights in being in the features.
This is very well-suited on the grounds that barely a month passed by during 2019 that didn’t see a PokerNews article with his name embellished over the top.
It just took four days of the New Year for Negreanu to show up on PokerNews’ radar when news broke of his commitment to Amanda Leatherman.
Negreanu got down on one knee on New Year’s Eve and brought up marriage to Leatherman.
Any inspiration encompassing this upbeat news was before long suppressed when Negreanu wrote a disputable blog on his Full Contact Poker webpage. In it, the man possessing third spot in the unequaled cash postings expounded on five qualities the most exceedingly terrible sort of poker player could have.
Negreanu expressed “In the event that you coordinate these classifications, at that point you are presumably a genuine treat to host at gatherings. 2 of 5 is still bad,2 and even went similarly as alluding to this player type as ‘a malignant growth to poker.”
His remarks drew outrage from Unibet Poker envoys Dara O’Kearney and David Lappin, which you can peruse here.
Twitter Feud With Shaun Deeb Turns Nasty
More offer vibes came Negreanu’s way in the approach the 2019 World Series of Poker. He took to Twitter in April to state he was anticipating playing all the more little purchase in occasions at the 2019 WSOP and that he was considering offering a bundle to his fans and devotees.
Negreanu asked his twitter devotees what they thought a reasonable increase would be on such a bundle, however Shaun Deeb wasn’t satisfied about Negreanu putting “a couple of additional dollars in your pocket from individuals you’re attempting to give a perspiration to.”
What began as a very considerate arrangement of tweets between the two stars, abruptly turned appalling when Negreanu disliked one of Deeb’s presently erased tweets. Negreanu called Deeb “a domineering jerk and a butt face” before calling Deeb “the big cheese with regards to edge shooting.”
The pair kept on being involved in a fight that developed increasingly close to home. Negreanu first made jokes about Deeb’s weight with Deeb fighting back advising to Negreanu to lay off his “supplements” as they were causing emotional episodes.
Things got sullen when Deeb approached Negreanu for a prop wager into whose marriage would last more. Negreanu needled Deeb by saying Deeb had a bit of leeway since he is more youthful, yet that Deeb was just “months from your first hearts assault.”
We should trust these two meet at the tables during 2020 in light of the fact that firecrackers will fly.
The marriage of Negreanu and Weatherman occurred on May 17 in California. An entire host of poker sovereignty was in participation to see the pair, who dated in 2010 preceding reviving their sentiment in 2018, get marry.
At time of composing, both Negreanu and Deeb are still joyfully wedded!
The End of an Era: Negreanu and PokerStars Part Company
Just before the beginning of the 2019 WSOP, PokerStars and Negreanu declared they were going separate ways in what they called “a friendly split.”
Negreanu has been a piece of PokerStars Team Pro since 2007. This implied Negreanu went into the 2019 WSOP without a patron without precedent for the best piece of 12 years.
An absence of fix on his chest did Negreanu no damage as he piled on 23 changes between Las Vegas and Rozvadov, Czech Republic for the WSOP Europe celebration. These included two 6th spot completes, a fifth, and a next in line leave, the last coming because of John Hennigan in the $10,000 Seven-card Stud occasion, which means Negreanu barely passed up his seventh armlet.
His noteworthy appearing at the WSOP and WSOP Europe hoped to have bolted up the pined for Player of the Year title, as he completed in front of Australian Robert Campbell and chief adversary Deeb in the standings.
That turned out not to be the situation after a hawk looked at individual from the Two Plus Two poker gatherings saw some mistaken information in one of the occasions.
The information demonstrated Negreanu traded out the $1,000 WSOP.com Online NLHE Championship and was granted 213.10 focuses. In any case, Negreanu hadn’t really traded out that occasion and it was an information passage blunder from one of the WSOP’s staff. With the focuses recalculated, Negreanu was deprived of the POY title and Campbell was reported as the champ. Amusingly, the outcome constrained Negreanu into third-place behind that man Deeb.
GG Poker and Negreanu Ink Sponsorship Deal
As 2019 began attracting to a nearby, exceptional online poker website GG Poker marked Negreanu in a sponsorship bargain meaning he had just been without a patron for just a half year.
That was in mid-November and no one idea Negreanu would highlight again until the New Year. They weren’t right in light of the fact that with under about fourteen days of 2019 remaining, Negreanu posted he was thinking about not returning any live poker competitions during the coming year, just to backpedal on this three days after the fact.
The now-GG Poker supported genius referenced he was thinking about entering the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio just once. Two projectiles later, in any case, he renegged on those contemplations and he said not returning occasions isn’t justified, despite any potential benefits as it would “consume his EV”.
There are as yet a couple of days surviving from 2019 and we wouldn’t wager against Negreanu’s name springing up in intense content at the highest point of a PokerNews article before the year is out.
