Final Table #33: Daniel Negreanu


This week on my poker radio show, the Final Table, Dennis Phillips and I talked with Daniel Negreanu, one of the most recognizable poker players in the world, who you've seen on pretty much every poker TV show in the last several years.

Daniel talked about fantasy football, playing on "High Stakes Poker," going against young aggressive players like Tom Dwan, and his upcoming TV show, the "PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge." Since he's on the WSOP Players Advisory Council, we also talked about changes Daniel is advocating for next year's event, including getting the $50,000 HORSE tournament back on ESPN. We also discussed his friendship with Doyle Brunson (who has been taking some knocks in online poker forums recently), playing in the Big Game in Bobby's Room, and whether the use of Twitter at the tournament tables is a good idea.

To bookend the show, Dennis and I covered the poker news of the week -- including a man who won a women's tournament in Atlantic City -- and Joe "The Poker Coach" McGowan analyzed the way Hevad Khan played a hand by giving off reverse tells to induce more chips out of his opponent.
