RIP Mrs Negreanu

RIP Mrs Negreanu

Wednesday, 25 November 2009

Daniel Negreanu’s latest poker blog is a sad affair as he describes how his mother passed away at around 3.30am on November 23 after a 10-month struggle with illness that the Canadian poker pro described as “10 months of the most brutal torture”.

“I can honestly say that I don't know one single person in the whole world that didn't like her. It was impossible to not like my mother. She could be tough and opinionated for sure, but she was always honest and wasn't afraid to share her opinion, whether you asked for it or not! Maybe that's where I got it from...

“So I'm in Toronto now. I think the funeral is on Wednesday or Thursday, I'm not quite sure yet. If you knew her, it would be great to see you there.”

Condolences have been pouring in from the poker community, with many noted pros offering their sympathies and thousands of posts springing up on Two Plus Two, where Negreanu is one of the more respected pros.
