Daniel Negreanu's email and PokerStars account were hacked yesterday and reveals via his Twitter account. Negreanu became aware of the break-in as he was returning home from competing in the Aussie Millions in Melbourne, Australia. Upon discovering the hacking of his accounts, Negreanu tweeted his friends and fans, “Important: Do NOT send me any emails the account appears to have been hacked. Just landed in LA nice news.” Later he told in an interview, "I was on an airplane home while this guy was joyriding my Stars account. He hacked my email and I got that back, still figuring out what happened. When I have all the details I'll share when it makes sense to.”
Poker players noticed the unpredictable play coming from Negreanu’s account, with some posting on popular poker forums that the poker pro was perhaps hungover and making poor decisions. In one particular hand, the miscreant hacker called five bets with A-5 offsuit. In response to the posts by confused fans, Negreanu’s posted reply said, “Some of you NVGtards really thought that was me??? Man HSP [High Stakes Poker] has really done wonders for my image.” In reference to poker television show High Stakes Poker were KidPoker has lost $2,182,850, making him the biggest loser in the show’s history.
Rumor has it that PokerStars will reimburse Negreanu’s account with the money foolishly squandered by the computer hacker.
