Daniel Negreanu angered by Hruby slowroll at EPT Vienna

Wednesday, 3 November 2010

The final table of the European Poker Tour main event in Vienna drew the attention of the poker world as chip leader Daniel Negreanu looked to add an EPT final table to his long list of accolades – the Team PokerStars Pro would have topped the All-Time Tournament Money List once more and claimed poker’s coveted Triple Crown.

However, Kid Poker eventually finished in fourth place and along the way had some harsh words for fellow PokerStars pro, Hungarian player Martin Hruby. In a key hand, Negreanu turned two pair on a board of K-8-5-9 – on the river, Negreanu led out and Hruby considered his action for a few minutes before calling and turning over 7-6 for the turned straight.

“Why did you slowroll that hand?” Asked a visibly irritated Negreanu. “You knew that you had the nuts.” When he finished in fourth place he said to Hruby: “I shouldn’t shake your hand, it’s filthy. That’s the filthiest thing I’ve ever seen, but I’ll do it anyway.”

Negreanu rarely holds back when speaking about other players so look to his post-Vienna blog for some more comments on Hruby’s etiquette – or lack thereof – at the EPT final table.
