Daniel Negreanu the Angle Shooter

11 January 2010 , By: compncards
Apparently people are calling Daniel Negreanu an angle shooter for some actions that he took at the PCA. At the river, Negreanu raised a bet from his opponent. The opponent thought Negreanu called and then after being told that Daniel raised, the player attempted to reraise. Daniel then called for a ruling.

I found out tonight that the poker world has lost one of its great characters.   Amir Vahedi has passed away from complications from diabetes.   For those that are not quite sure where to place that name, Vahedi finished 6th in the 2003 WSOP Main Event.   Vahedi was also known for his trademark cigar and his fondness of check-raising.

Do You Smell What Online Poker is Cookin?

Do any of you still watch professional wrestling? I was thinking about how that online poker and wrestling have some similarities. Hear me out: In pro wrestling, you have men and women that come out to perform in front of a crowd, and they think they are the next best thing since sliced bread. In reality, not many people outside of Wal-Mart probably know who they are. In online poker, you have players that think that they are God's gift to poker, and they must tell everyone they are playing against in the $1 sit and go just how great that they are.

So now there is a controversy brewing regarding Isildur1's losses to Brian Hastings. Hastings told Gary Wise of ESPN. com that “Obviously I'm happy and I'll take it, but Brian [Townsend] did a ton of work. The three of us discussed a ton of hands and the reports that Brian made, so I'm very thankful to him and to Cole as well.
