Again, she has a right to be there and players have a right to tell her to **** herself. Freedom works both ways.
One more thing for the person who blamed the US situation on poker for the failure of the Epic poker league. She lives here. She knew the risks. Pre Black Friday we al knew that the hammer could fall at any time. She doesn't get to play the "OMG, I had no idea such a thing could happen"
Exactly. When it comes to Black Friday, that happened in April, the first Epic tournament was in August, if there was really going to be a fallout from that, they could/should/would have had ample amounts of time to pull the plug before screwing people over.

Negreanu says she literally smells bad and cheats.
She shouldn't be allowed in the building.
No really - WTF did she do????
Yeah she knew the poker climate after BF - but so did the investors - and if they didn't they are idiots for not exercising due diligence.
It's not like I am a fan - hell I don't even feel sorry for her
But what the hell did she do to cause this reaction to her presence when Tony G and Phil H are respected?
Any factoids out there?
