Earlier, Bluff Magazine’s Thomas Keeling talked with Joe Hachem about poker ambassadorship and why, in Joe’s opinion, the game of poker is dying. If you haven’t checked that video out, do so now!
While Hachem’s words were from the heart, they also stirred some debate about what is both expected and required of a true poker ambassador and what we can hope for from whoever is lucky enough to win the WSOP Main Event. Daniel Negreanu, who is one of the most outspoken names in the game, also tackled this topic in a conversation with Bluff. Negreanu says, while it’s not a requirement of these “young geniuses”, or anyone for that matter, to engage with the media and fans, to not do so would be shortsighted and bad for the game.
Check out the video as Daniel echoes many of Joe’s thoughts and, of course, adds his own digs at the Tournament Directors Association (TDA).
