Shortly after being outclassed by young Scandinavian poker players Daniel Negreanu agreed to do an interview for Siktilt.com. This interview resulted with Daniel turning violent, after the reporter failed to give him the “Phil Hellmuth”. This treatment is actually a theory that suggests all reporters should treat former young poker prodigies with respect even after they’ve passed there prime and even though they no longer win many tournaments.

Anyways, here is the video:

We have to say to Siktilt, next time you guys do a stunt like this run it by us first. Perhaps we can help you make it more believable. For example: that “Doyle Brunson told me you were a fucking asshole” was classic, but that should have come before the push. Then considering the reporter was much bigger, and most likely much tougher, than DN you guys should have had someone there to break up a fight. Other than that this was some great entertainment.

We can’t help but wonder the purpose for Negreanu doing such stunts. Yeah we can see PokerStars.com might like the idea in order to push the new PokerStars.tv website but why would DN want to risk people thinking he actually is an asshole? Perhaps DN would rather be known as an asshole then as gay? The woman in the hotel room bed hardly went noticed, so now DN has to resort to pushing reporters in pools and talking about beating up woman. I guess that works?

We get the feeling this is a classic WWE like face to heel turn. Perhaps the 2008 WSOP event will end with Daniel smashing the champion over the head with a guitar and walking off with the gold bracelet. Lets just hope a good guy wins the event because DN is not ready yet for a Heel vs Heel battle until he destroys a few good guys first.

In whatever case, thanks for feeding us degenerates shit to report on.

Love the site guys. Man the reporter was a total di*k. What an arrogant ass. Daniel went too far, but the guy deserved what Daniel said. The whole interview seemed set up just to rail Daniel. I’m sure the guys will loose quite a few interviews because of this.

An interesting article idea, Brandi Hawbaker’s suicide.

Again love the site

Daniel picked up a bracelet and four other cashes at the WSOP this year without smashing something over the runner-ups head.
