Back during the EPT Monte Carlo final table last May there was a debate going on about Andrew Pantling's creative play. Pantling later spoke about his style being unique and that he did not care what other people think of it. Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu voiced his opinions at the time and was not too impressed with Pantling's play.
Just right now Pantling and Negreanu found out they were sitting with their backs towards each other and polite words were exchanged.
"We just have different styles," Negreanu said to Pantling who emphasized that it didn't matter to him what the five-time bracelet winner said.
Both players were very friendly and Negreanu expressed that he would never voice a negative opinion about an amateur player.
"I didn't think you would be offended. I consider you a professional and I just wanted to express that we have different playing styles," Negreanu added.
Pantling understood Negreanu's point of view and the two professionals shook hands as the tournament continues. So far today things are working out a lot better for Negreanu who's sitting on 62,000 chips while Pantling has just 6,100.
