Negreanu Spots Trump and Hillary’s Poker Tells

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

negreanu-trump-hillaryDaniel Negreanu is one of the few poker pros who have mainstream fame. So it’s little surprise that when Esquire was looking for a player to spot Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s poker tells, they asked Negreanu.

You can read all of his analysis here, but let’s check out some of what Negreanu pointed out below:

What Type of “Players” are Donald and Hillary?

Negreanu – “Trump is clearly very loose and very aggressive. He’s a loose, aggressive wild man. He’s hard to prepare for because he’s a lunatic. When you’re playing poker with a guy like that you never know what he’s going to do next because he’s all over the place. On the other hand, Hillary is extremely tight and extremely conservative. She’s very robotic and very careful to not upset the apple cart. They’re polar opposites in how they approach a debate. He’s loose/aggressive and she’s tight/conservative.”

What Are Hillary and Donald’s Tells?

Negreanu – “Yes. And both are distinctly different. Hillary is a lot more practiced and polished, so when she puts on a fake smile I can tell when it’s fake, and often it is. Trump is a lot more loose and obvious with his facial expressions. You could watch Donald Trump in a debate and not hear any of the words and you’ll still get a sense for when he’s pleased, when he’s angry and when he’s not.”

Hillary’s Smile Is a Huge Tell

Negreanu – “Well, when she gets a little bit nervous she tends to giggle or cackle a little bit and I would say that is her biggest tell. She’s masking weakness by pretending to laugh it off. Another is that she begins to choose her words more carefully. You can see that she’s thinking a lot. When [I believe] she’s lying, she looks up and her eyes are up to the left like she’s searching for the right words and trying to make sure that she doesn’t step into it.”

Hillary Putting Trump on Tilt

Negreanu – “Well, she really provoked him. It was clear in the first debate, she set a trap. She antagonised him by mentioning daddy’s money. And for a man like Trump, you’re basically pressing the button of his ego and his self-worth and that put him on tilt. He stopped attacking her and started defending himself. You couldn’t have played it any more perfectly.”

The debate portion of Hillary and Trump’s poker game is finished. But they’re still playing the game through attack ads on each other ahead of the Nov. 8 election.

Negreanu offers $100k to see Donald Trump’s D*ck

Friday, March 4th, 2016

daniel-negreanu-pokerstarsDaniel Negreanu has never been afraid to speak his mind, even when it comes to discussing the genitalia of Presidential candidates. Kid Poker recently tweeted that he’d offer Trump $100,000 for the Republican frontrunner to deliver picture proof that his penis is indeed large.

Here’s a look at the tweets from Negreanu’s account:

How are we going to fact check Trump’s claim that he doesn’t have a small penis? Will he release the photos? The voters need to know yes?

I challenge @realDonaldTrump to release a dick pic to prove its of average size or more. I will donate $100,000 to a charity of his choice.

If you missed the Detroit debate last night, Trump referenced a joke that Rubio previously made about his small hands equating to the size of his penis. But the billionaire turned the insult around by saying “[Rubio said] If they’re small [hands], something else must be small. I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”

donald-trump-negreanuSo far, Trump has run away with the Republican Presidential candidate nomination, winning 10 states up until now. His next closest competition, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, has only won three states thus far. There are still plenty of states that have yet to vote on the Republican nomination, but if Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich can’t win any of the important swing states (ex. Florida, Ohio, Texas), then Trump will be the runaway nomination.

This is interesting because last month Negreanu told PokerListings that he didn’t think there was any chance of Trump winning the 2016 Presidential Race.

“He’ll never beat Hilary, because the vast majority especially in larger states don’t believe that all the Muslims should be left out and that all Mexicans are rapists,” said Negreanu. “The only guy who can beat Hilary is Marco Rubio. I think he’s the best politician of the Republicans to collect voters on the right, but then also come back to the middle and find voters there, too.”

Kid Poker is the second player to express his political opinion on Trump this month. Phil Hellmuth did the same a few days ago, only his view was a little more impartial. The Poker Brat gave his strategy on beating Trump, whom he believes is a “loose-aggressive” politician. The idea is to wait for a big moment (big pot) to take Trump down. Unfortunately, the game is almost over and patience doesn’t seem to be the strategy that’ll beat the real estate mogul and reality star.
