Negs Dumps Wife

Written by Tom Somach in Poker News

Poker pro Daniel Negreanu announced he is splitting from his wife–on his blog!

One of the top poker players in the world, the 33-year-old Canadian, who has earned almost $10 million in poker tournament winnings and won three World Series of Poker championship gold bracelets, recently broke the news on the blog (web log) he regularly updates at the online poker room Full Contact Poker (

In a poignant confession, Negreanu admits his two-year-old marriage to wife Lori Lyn Weber Negreanu has irretriviably broken down, and he assumes much of the blame for that breakdown.

Negreanu wrote on his blog: “Lori and I have been married a little over two years now and we hardly ever fight or argue. She’s very easy to get along with and is a very rational human being. When ever we’ve had issues in the past we usually do a really good job of sitting down, talking about it, and trying to understand and respect each other’s feelings.

“Many women would have a really difficult time dealing with me being busy and on the road so much, but Lori was totally cool with it, understanding what I did well before we got married. She was always great about that stuff and when it comes to hanging out with friends or having them over all night until morning, it never bothered her at all. She’s always been awesome in that respect.

“Having said that, for quite some time now we both have felt that there was something missing or not quite right. I know for certain that I’m to blame for much of it. I can be a pretty demanding person at times. What I regret most is trying to change Lori into something she wasn’t instead of just loving her for who she was. She is a great person, someone you could trust with your life and would never turn her back on you. She is a great listener and would do anything for a friend. I think we’ll be really good friends forever.

“The decision to split could not have gone any smoother. Seriously, one night we just started talking after a frustrating day for both of us. Not yelling, not blaming each other for anything at all, no crying, just talking like adults. Neither of us our quitters at all, especially when it comes to something so serious, so the real question was: have we given it enough time? Have we tried our best? Will anything change? Virtually simultaneously we both agreed that we did try our best and that there just seemed to be this one big problem: while we get along great and enjoy each other’s company, we just aren’t right for each other…We are getting along great and I’m certain that we’ll be friends forever.

“There is no need for any lawyers as we took care of all the details ourselves. There were no arguments there either: I get Mushu, she gets Marley which is no surprise. I feel bad for the dogs as they’ve gotten pretty close, but Marley will still come by to play I’m sure.”

The former couple have no children.
