The Shaun Deeb/Daniel Negreanu verbal boxing match on Twitter has gone into overdrive, with DNegs stating of Deeb:

Negreanu had been down more than $1 million at one point, but he rallied to cut the deficit nearly in half at $565,708.96 before Polk’s recent surge. Follow @JimBarnesLV on Twitter. The latest tweets from @RadioAmanda. The latest tweets from @realkidpoker.

“I don’t trust you not to angle shoot. Nor do I trust that you won’t cheat.”

This week’s falling out – far from the first between the pair – resulted from Deeb’s recent ‘Markup police’ hatchet job on the likes of Allen Chainsaw Kessler and TwitchTV poker streamer Johnnie Vibes, as we reported previously.

Daniel’s defence of Kessler led to a protracted exchange of tweets, resulting in the PokerStars man stating:

“Your goal here is abusing and bullying people. Cause it’s who you are dude.”

Deeb, one of the most-talented but least-liked pros in the game, was quick to fire back…

DNegs posted a couple of angle-shoot stories to back up his claims…

…and then the fight descended even further into name-calling, with Negreanu harking back to their previous bout of verbal fisticuffs, in which Deeb appeared to wish a divorce upon Negreanu, newly-engaged to Amanda Leatherman at the time.

With the duelling pros reaching an all-time low in their feud, in stepped the ‘referee’ to prise the pair apart…

…with Brandon Shack-Harris as one of the few voices of reason…

With the WSOP still a good few weeks away, there’s still time for the players to put their differences aside before they potentially meet across the felt, but there are precious few people who would bet on that happening.

They are two of the biggest names and the biggest ‘mouths’ in the poker world and this week has seen Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk continue their very witty and, yes, extremely petty, rivalry - while the poker Twitterati audience grabbed their popcorn and wait for the inevitable escalation from snide comments into full-blown Twitter-warfare – then shit got very real!

What ought to have been a simple tweet by ‘dnegs’ of his latest podcast almost instantly turned to something more interesting when Polk offered technical advice, with Negreanu poking Polk in return…

When someone suggested they play heads-up to sort out their long-running ‘differences’, it was the Canadian pokerstar who fired the first real broadside, offering Polk some advice

A big ouch! Right there, Polk having lost badly to ‘Poker Brat’ Hellmuth a couple of weeks ago – a painful experience when big Phil gets bragging rights over hitherto ‘undisputed best heads-up player in the world’ Polk.

The top-level bickering has been an ongoing affair, Polk taking every opportunity to have a pop at Negreanu – such as turning up sporting a ‘More Rake Better’ t-shirt at the WSOP to remind Daniel of his controversial comments defending his PokerStars bosses hugely unpopular money grab…

One person, evidently a fan of both men, wasn’t impressed by the latest slaps in their spat, tweeting…

…but others were finding it more amusing, the ‘handbags at ten paces’ offering the chance for witticisms such as…

Then shit got real

The poker world runs on money, and both Negreanu and Polk have more of it than almost anyone else in the game, so if we can’t have a heads-up showdown, or what would be a hilarious MMA fight-off, the next best thing is seeing which one of them will have to swallow humble pie and hand over huge wads of cash!

Well, hopefully that kind of rivalry won’t make it to their next YouTube offerings, but you can bet your bottom dollar that someone, somewhere has already been asked to take measurements for a purple jacket, Polk or Negreanu almost guaranteed to don it in one of their vlogs depending on the PokerMasters outcome.

And next up? Well, big Phil Hellmuth decided that Negreanu and Polk were arguing about pocket change and stunned even Fedor Holz with his offer…
