Daniel Negreanu Opens Up About His Life’s Biggest Regret
My biggest regret in life happened as a teenager when I called my mother a fat pig while she was eating after an argument we had.
I saw her cry and it still haunts me to this day 30 years later.
Meanest thing I’ve ever done and am still ashamed by it.

This incident took place 30 years ago while Negreanu was still a teenager, but it clearly still affects him when he thinks about his now deceased mother.
One poster tweeted a photo of the pair together following one of Negreanu’s victories in a WPT major event.
As a mother, I know it hurt her, but I also know she was aware of your age and what comes with it. She forgave and ADORED you. It was obvious! You’re blessed she got to enjoy your success!💙 pic.twitter.com/DyuACRXi2a

Daniel Negreanu also opened up after his mother passed away in 2009. He explained that she had been in terrible shape, suffering for 10 months after a stroke and mild heart attack.
“She was literally the most unselfish person I’d ever met. She got so much joy out of simply feeding people. I mean that. She loved nothing more than to cook and care for people. This Christmas will be a different one for sure. She usually cooks up a massive feast that all of my friends look forward to.”
“She loved to dance and laugh. Some of my best memories as a kid were at dinner parties she’d throw at the house. As always, a monster feast, music, lots of wine and drinks… my dad telling jokes that had everyone laughing, then dancing in the living room.”
