Daniel Negreanu on Annie Duke, Howard Lederer: Throw Them in Hall of Shame!

ShareThis
Annie Duke, Daniel Negreanu

Poker pro Daniel Negreanu has taken another shot at his long time foe Annie Duke, this time suggesting she should be thrown into the Hall of Shame, as opposed to the Hall of Fame.

Ms. Duke, probably the most popular poker player in the world, is among those nominated to join the prestigious Hall of Fame. 

“For what?” Negreanu asks in an interview with PokerListings.com. “Robbing people at UB? Owing Russ Hamilton money and never paying him back? For stealing money from people at the poker table?

“For representing poker in the worst light imaginable when she was on Celebrity Apprentice? For all those things then yes,” Negreanu told PokerListings.com at the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe in Cannes.  

“If you took out the “F” and added an “Sh” in the word fame then yes, I think she should be inducted,” he added.

Negreanu, of course, was referring to the nonexistent Hall of Shame.

He suggested, while they are at it, why not throw her brother Howard Lederer in there too.

Lederer is alleged by the US Justice Department to have perpetrated an elaborate ponzi scheme through his role as a stakeholder or part owner in Full Tilt Poker.  That company has been stiffing customers since April of this year.

Looks like Edward Norton could reprize the role of "worm" in a "Rounders sequel" Substitute Howard Lederers rise to fame, wealth and corruption with Ed Norton's character, Lester Murphy, AKA "Worm"
Daniel is the biggest scumbag of them all.....acting all cool and pro like all the while promoting Pokerstars....How much they pay you Daniel? How much they pay you to bad mouth your fellow crooks? Negreanu is a paid puppet and just as much a fraud as the rest of them...I like how he almost admits to the fraud through his acusations against UB Annie Duke and the rest...when its really Pokerstars and Negreanu that are making the most of this scam....DANIEL NEGREANU IS THE POKERSTARS POSTER CHILD! FRAUD AND A SCAMMER OF THE WORST KIND........scumbag!
pokerstars paid me asshole
^^^^^^^Annie Dukes comment^^^^^^
if we all could only be as righteous as danny
You can be. Just do what you say and say what you do. Daniel has been upfront and forthright. Howard..?? I'm still waiting for a statement and my money from FT. Chris...?? Still waiting.... Ray...?? Still waiting... I'd love to "chat with the pros" only they turned tail and ran. I can't chat/speak with them as they professed in their marketing materials. Heck, I can't even read a statement they've made. It's a shame that the FT "pros" were only pros at embezzling money from people. Daniel's available to talk and upholds what he says. Just wish Howard, Chris and Ray would be honest and speak to the people that trusted them. It's not too much to ask.
