When I first saw the headline that Peter Eastgate was selling his 2008 WSOP Main Event bracelet I thought, “Oh god, not another T.J. Cloutier.

Daniel Negreanu goes off on Annie Duke

It’s no secret among poker insiders that Annie Duke isn’t exactly one of the most liked players (or rather personalities since she doesn’t do much playing anymore).
