Loudmouth Negreanu Accuses Michael Binger of Cheating at World Series of Poker Tournament

Negreanu's Victim Binger
Embattled hotshot poker pros Daniel Negreanu and Michael Binger got into a big-time fracus at the WSOP $10K H.O.R.S.E. Event on Wednesday. Negreanu directly accused Binger of being an "angle shot" cheat specialist in front of everyone at the table as well as the spectators. Evidently Negreanu, in spite of his big mouth, might have some just say there, inasmuch as tournament director Robbie Thompson did give Binger a warning.

Binger's reaction, which he verbalized, was that Negreanu should shut his goddmaned mouth! Binger also expressed concern that his tournament WSOP life was in jeopardy. Negreanu, a four-time WSOP bracelet winner, did not back down and kept accusing Binger of angle-shooting with half-bets to get a gauge on his opponents' strategies.

My take: As much as I hate Negreanu, especially with his bullshit antics about banning sunglasses at poker tables, he may have a valid point here.
