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.
