Death of a true great

In lieu of a traditional blog post this week, I thought I would pay my respects to Annie Negreanu, the mother of top poker pro Daniel ‘Kid Poker’ Negreanu.

Annie passed away in her sleep in the early hours of Monday morning, after a long illness

Daniel and his mother were very close, and no one would begrudge him some time away from poker as he comes to terms with his loss.

Annie, always a bubbly and friendly character suffered a heart attack earlier this year and, in her son’s words, ‘Has been through a lot.’

She was a devoted mother, caring for her son and cooking him and his poker-playing friends delicious food.

And, far from taking her for granted, Daniel has used his relationship with his ‘mama Negreanu’ as an example which he sets out for others to follow.

So all that remains to be said is RIP Annie
