Doyle Brunson on Negreanu’s Masterclass ‘Mistake’, Latest WSOP Updates

Poker legend Doyle Brunson has questioned why fellow pro Daniel Negreanu wants to share his knowledge and presumably spread the wealth.

Brunson tweeted to Negreanu this week, questioning why he would be "giving" away his secrets:

Daniel...you are the best tournament player in the world. Why are you educating people? Don't make the same mistake I did with S/S. I justify my teaching that it created lots of new players that we sorely need. Today there are plenty of players...just saying.

From HighStakesDB.com:

‘Giving away’ is perhaps the wrong phrase, Negreanu’s Masterclass costing $90 per year for 34 lessons from the all-time winningest live tournament player in the history of the game, but Brunson seems to feel that ‘educating’ other players isn’t the way to go – citing his own ‘Super System’ mistake.
