Poker Stories Podcast: Quarantine Special With Barry Greenstein And Daniel Negreanu

Poker Stories Is An Audio Podcast Series That Features The Game's Best Players and Personalities


Poker Stories is a long-form audio podcast series that features casual interviews with some of the game’s best players and personalities. Each episode highlights a well-known member of the poker world and dives deep into their favorite tales both on and off the felt.

In this special episode of Poker Stories, we revisit two of our most popular early guests to catch up on what’s happened in their lives over the last three years.

Barry Greenstein appeared on the podcast back in November of 2017. The Poker Hall of Fame inductee and two-time World Poker Tour champion has stayed pretty busy despite his age of 65, and has had a high cash rate at the World Series of Poker for the last two years, even finishing with 13 in one summer while looking to add to his three career bracelets.

Daniel Negreanu was featured in an episode in March of 2017, and has experienced quite a bit of personal change in the time since. Although he was passed at the top of the all-time money list by Justin Bonomo and then Bryn Kenney, he did add several million to his earnings and now sits at $41 million for his career. At the 2019 WSOP, he played well enough to earn his third Player of the Year title, only to be slowrolled by a clerical error. He also managed to marry longtime poker host Amanda Leatherman, while also ending his 12-year relationship with PokerStars. He is now a team pro at GGPoker.

Highlights from this interview include why jail isn’t scary, a time for self-improvement, poker germs, finding the spots at the table, a pain in the eyes, Alice Cooper hair, the poker rope-a-dope strategy, slap boxing, an outgoing introvert, reading The Godfather, online poker sponsorships, what’s really good for the players, Andre Agassi at the 1999 US Poker Championship, double hoop earrings, being mistaken for Phil, Scott Seiver wins the psychological war, gender swaps, and will the WSOP happen in the fall?
