I watched the WSOP coverage live and i saw DN running away from the table all the time, giving hugs, autographs, pictures with hes fans...even during such an event in such stage and having fun and being cool with hes fans.

I think you just caught him in bad time, also i think there are tonns of guys want to get picture with him in daily routine and he might just forget you lol. Like seriously.


This story reminds me of Eminems song "Stan", where the guy didnt got autograph for hes little brother and thought E was being a xxxx. But in fact he is just a busy guy and tonns of ppl want the same thing.

"Anyways, so I approached Negreanu and Greenstein and asked them if they'd be okay taking a quick picture with us.. And Daniel responded, with an annoyed/disgusted look on his face "ok, just let me finish this thought first", he then continued conversing with Greenstein for another 10 minutes while my friend and I stood there like idiots waiting. 10 minutes later he just walks off and leaves without even acknowledging me or my friend."

It all comes down to whether you interrupted a serious conversation. Sounds like you did. If so it explains both his being annoyed and forgetting you were there.

who cares if Daniel engaged you OP... Why do people always think they need justification from another person.

if anything is telling here, it's OP's internal need to be recognized by a pseudo star.

It's not like these players means of income is subject to popular influence. With a sports star, you might have an argument basically because sports survives on revenue generated by spectators.

Just go on with your life

yes. like i said, i would love to know if he gets amusement/satisfaction out of the manner/style/tone in which he posts. i'm being serious, but his answer would probably be a level that would tilt me further.

daniel makes tons of money off of sponsorships that most likely would not exist without casual poker fans.

Yeah I've never gotten the autograph/picture thing. I mean, when you're 11 years old, I get it. But when a grown man/woman randomly asks a famous person to take a picture with them, it just kind of seems pathetic.

And why would he? Tournaments are commercial enterprises, right? If his normal daily fee is $50k a day, then by accepting less than $50k a day he's effectively robbing himself to subsidize someone else's business.

Makes no sense whatsoever.

Daniel prolly gets approached for pictures and annoying stuff like this so often that you sir are merely just another piss in the sea!

You honestly should not be surprised that he forgot about you. You are probably 1 out of 100s of fans that have approached him in last month considering it was the WSOP. You are meaningless to him not because he is a bad guy and not because you are not worthy of his attention, but because statistically you are meaningless. Just another punter coming along wanting a picture or autograph.

The problem is that you took this situation personally. Don't take it personally, because it was not personal, he doesn't even know you at all.

but that's his choice to damage his image, and that's your choice to not contribute.

that is MUCH different than your salary being paid by spectators like any sports figure(except golfers)

as a human being, you'd think you would be civil to another person, but it's not a requirement... specially if you interrupted something in his normal life.

Daniel has the right to privacy just like any other person.

You can't really judge too much from just tv, but on tv he comes across to me as insecure and needing validation of how awesome he is.

Seems to be desperate for attention and approval/validation.

As for the picture thing, in his defense he probably can't walk into a casino or cardroom without being stopped for autographs or pictures 1,000 times so that's gotta get old and it's hard to be friendly about it constantly.

Let's review:

1) Daniel Negreanu was chatty while playing poker with people who never thought in a million years they'd get to play with him.

2) He was affectionate with his girlfriend.

3) He asked if he could finish his conversation before taking a picture, the wait was longer than expected, then he forgot about the picture.

Sounds terrible.

Yeah would be nice to see him play some Canadian events once in awhile for sure. Having dual citizenship he could have played in last years Canada COOP but chose to play in the USA COOP instead. I thought that was pretty weak considering all the spam emails Stars sends out with him pimping Canadian events or promos...

OP, you are over-reacting hard.
