    Negreanu intentionally snubs me in Twitter podcast bracket poll

    Daniel Negreanu recently posted a bracket-style poll regarding favorite poker podcast host. He listed 32 poker podcast hosts, some well known, others not well known at all. He claimed he was doing this mostly to give exposure to some of the lesser names out there.

    Conspicuously missing from this poll?

    A gentleman named Todd Witteles.

    Negreanu and I were never friends, but we always had a cordial relationship up until fairly recently. Most notably, he liked the fact that we both shared a disdain for Annie Duke, and that we both had issues with Bryan Micon around the same time. Negreanu also appreciated that I somewhat defended him during the Pokerstars Supernova Elite debacle, when I felt that some of the grinders on social media were being unnecessarily tough on him, while at the same time conceding that he made some mistakes. That was the last time he and I had a positive interaction.

    Since then, Negreanu has gotten wind that I've made some not-so-flattering comments about his now-wife Amanda, and he also hasn't appreciated some of my critical comments in response to some of his tweets. I do want to note that I've always treated him respectfully, and never have been on the "bash/insult Negeranu" train made popular by guys like Doug Polk. When I have criticized him, I've always done so in a matter-of-fact, non-hostile fashion.

    I played with him at the $10k Limit Holdem event this year. He didn't run very well there (even worse than I did), and went out pretty fast. While he wasn't particularly talkative at the table (probably because he was losing), he didn't utter a single word to me, even though we played a few hands together. In the past, he and I had always talked in a friendly fashion when we were at the same table. It was clear he didn't care much for me anymore. I think the Amanda comments of mine are probably what pissed him off the most.

    Whatever. I still don't dislike the guy, even if he dislikes me. At the same time, his approval isn't particularly important to me.

    I will say that he hasn't blocked me on Twitter, whereas he's done that to a lot of people he dislikes.

    So back to the Twitter poll.

    Danny N is a complete fool . I hope his new plastic wife takes everything including the two little dogs . She isn't even that good looking anyways . Every vlog he had from the series this year promoted some sort of his wifey's body . He flaunts himself and his moderate home like he is on the top of the poker world when in reality he has not been very relevant for years.

    You could give the absolute worst degen player on PFA the same deal he had at stars and they could bink just as many tournaments . He fails to realize when playing with an unlimited bankroll for years he had zero downswing pressure. I can't stand this guy .

    You deserved to be on that list .


    I will also note I have a friend who knows Danny boy very well . Has been to his home many times and he has nothing good to say about how he treats people off camera and how he has left many of his friends hanging on investments that he committed too.

    Doug Polk wasn't listed, but one could argue that he isn't really a podcaster. But obviously Negreanu would not have listed him either way.
    Dude, you diss a guy's wife and you are essentially dealing with two angry people.
    Some people aren't as calm, cool and collected as you.

    Take an ad out in the paper

    I have heard nothing like this before. He is the opposite from all I've heard

    Les: 100% true . My guy has zero reason to make this stuff up. He has been a lifetime friend of Danny . Now they both are dual citizens .

    Do the other podcasts actually talk about poker? Or do they talk about more important things to the poker community like getting a ticket at a police trap, paying 2x RC's at Caesars restaurants, or party-line shenanigans from the 90's?

    PFA Podcast is unique in the aspect that Druff talks about interesting things instead of boring poker content such as Blockers and Equity and all the other things that have been discussed into the depths of hell.

    What is inordinately more likely is that you're just forgettable and it was an oversight.

    Leaning you out of a poll because you bagged on his wife makes no sense. He probably just forgot about you.

    Don't worry, Amanda Leatherman and Daniel Negreanu will be divorced in the next 3 to 5 years.

    I doubt that Daniel Negreanu will make any money in the next 3 to 5 years. The PokerStars gravy train is permanently finished. Daniel can raise all the fucking money he wants from Twitter but his winnings won't cover his expenses.

    Amanda Leatherman will be divorced from Daniel and living in Beverly Hills, California with her dog and a guy who looks like Joe Sebok.

    I already addressed this point in the OP.

    Normally I would have simply blamed this on an oversight -- that I wasn't actively on his mind, and he just forgot to think about my show when considering poll choices.

    However, he asked for suggestions prior to making this poll, and several listeners mentioned me and PFA.

    Also, notice that he also left out David Lappin and Dara O'Kearney -- two recent critics of his. That was definitely no accident. To be fair, he despises those two, whereas I think he's just moderately annoyed with me, but I think he's annoyed enough to where he didn't want to help publicize my show with his poll.


    I also see that some don't believe my statement that I don't care what he thinks of me. But that's honestly the truth. I've always conducted myself in the poker world in the fashion where I just speak my mind, and don't care who ends up disliking me, even if they are big or influential names.

    The only reason I wish I was mentioned in that poll is because it would have brought some more publicity to my show, and perhaps gotten me some new listeners. Other than that, it doesn't really matter. As someone already pointed out, Joey Ingram is going to win the poll anyway, so it's not like I thought I got cheated out of the chance to win it.

    When we talked about AHoosierA's masturbatory stalker on the show last night, and I was discussing methods of masturbating public, I stopped and asked if a similar discussion would take place on the Negreanu/Schwartz/Chan "DAT Poker Podcast".

    I'll bring up a rhetorical question like that whenever an absurd, sexual, or gross topic comes up on the show.

    So yes, this is a very different type of show, one which does cover the important stories in poker and gambling, but also veers off into weirdness at times.
