Negreanu’s Weekly Rant: April 17

Daniel Negreanu Weekly Rant April 17Daniel Negreanu Weekly Rant April 17

Yesterday, Daniel Negreanu released another of his Weekly Rants. It came a day earlier than usual and is a celebration of the top women players in poker today. Negreanu applauds the likes of Vanessa Rousso, Maria Ho, Liv Boeree, Jen Harman, Cindy Violette and Venessa Selbst. We get some insights into what these women have achieved in poker, how they got there and what they are like as people from Negreanu’s perspective. Of course, it wouldn’t be a rant without another look at his least favourite female player – Annie Duke – who he has slightly less flattering things to say about.
