Duke hit back however, claiming that a separate event did no favours for breaking down the sexual barriers in the game.
The shrewd Negreanu, however, found the hypocrisy in Duke’s repost.
Daniel Negreanu has been heavily scrutinised after he allegedly used the expletive ‘c***’ in a recent interview with Poker uk.
The four letter curse was directed towards female Ultimate Bet pro and sibling of Howard Lederer, Annie Duke.
Despite claiming men and women are equal at the felt, Duke, in sync with her UB marketing image, champions herself as the ‘best female poker player in the world’ on her website.
Negreanu went on to say, ‘how offensive are you, you f***ing c***? Daniel’s attack has polarised opinion amongst poker circles.
Stern has endured considerable success online, having featured on TV show ‘2 Months 2 Million’, and coached for training site Poker Savvy.
Sure enough, Daniel’s prophecy came true, as Hellmuth was ousted by Daniel ‘Ansky’ Stern in several major pots.Eleven times WSOP bracelet winner, Ultimate Bet ambassador and self-proclaimed ‘best NL Hold’em player in the world’ he may be, but Phil Hellmuth’s abysmal form in televised cash games continued on Poker Stars the Big Game.Poker Stars Big Game, now about to enter week seven, is a refreshing alternative to other televised cash games such as GSN’s High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark.It features a unique concept where an online qualifier, dubbed the ‘loose cannon’, is staked 0k to battle the pros.The challenger only gets to keep his profits, thus encouraging an aggressive approach.
