Negreanu was busy tweeting during his flight to Nassau to participate in the tournaments. In one of his tweets, he referred to Jonathan Duhamel, Antonio Esfandiari, and Sorel Mizzi as “three bums” who were sitting behind him in the plane. Just before that, he tweeted that he would use the Wifi facility on flight to earn some more VPPs on PokerStars.
