If you ask Daniel Negreanu, this whole 25/50 online challenge has gotten a little out of hand.
In fact, that’s what Remko Rinkema from PokerNews did and he got a slight scolding from Kid Poker about the origins of this misunderstood beef with the high stakes online community.
Daniel isn’t exactly backtracking as much as clarifing – he was tweeting, not thowing down the gauntlet when he said he could beat the big time online games. He’s not positive that he could, but he totally believes in himself and with the help of a few friends, is pretty sure he could be a winning online player again.
Of course, that’s not going to happen anytime soon for the 6-time bracelet winner as he’s living a pretty cushy life in Las Vegas and until poker becomes regulated in Nevada (it is) and PokerStars becomes available there (it isn’t) Daniel has no plans to move out for 3 months to bother to attempt this.
One good thing to come from this. Daniel has yet another poker mission to set his sights on – eliminate seat scripting to protect the high stakes fish from getting eaten alive.
