Daniel Negreanu Blasts Lederer, Bitar, Ferguson in Vlog

While this isn’t necessarily the first time Daniel Negreanu has bashed the actions of Full Tilt Poker–and specifically Ray Bitar, Howard Lederer, and Chris Ferguson–the above clip is the first time he’s done it in very clear language on a video blog.

Daniel really taps into the general public zeitgeist with this one. Along with calling Lederer (and the others) “a shameful little weasel” and “disgraceful,” he also says:

“I’d have no problem if…somebody came up to you and bash you in the nuts with a baseball bat.”

Damn. Watch the vid rant in full starting around the 6 minute mark.

In unrelated news, Negreanu also admits he’s STD free, so that’s good for him, although bad for the kayaking industry and means he may not ride a bike with or walk on a beach with a hot girl any time soon…

    Yeah its great people are finally speaking up against this Full Tilt poker Fail. People trusted these guys. It seems even those who had been giving them the benefit of the doubt such as cardplayer.com ‘s Matt Glantz, who had previously publicly and privately defended Full Tilt, now (I think it is safe to assume) agrees with Daniels “bashing in the nuts” Solution. Big respect guys, If I ever get the chance I will record the said bashing in the nuts of said people.

    Good for you, Daniel.

    I quit writing for a UK poker mag after they refused to run with my piece on big-time organised cheating. “The sites would not stand for it, they’re making too much money to risk, famous people, reputations, etc.”

    They had no motive to cheat, I was told. Unfortunately, they had no motive NOT to.
