Poker legend Daniel Negreanu is owed more than $5 Million in loans handed out to fellow poker players and this week he took to Twitter to ask if he should publicly out those who owe him the massive sum…

 

Many people in poker owe me money. Some did it letting me know they didn’t know when they could pay, others acted dishonestly and lied about their situation to get money from me.

Should I make these debts public?

— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 21, 2019

The numbers in from almost 30,000 votes show a resounding YES to outing those who owe KidPoker, just over 50% of the total saying that only the dishonest debtors should be named and shamed.

The amount loaned by Negreanu – which he describes as ‘closer to 8’ figures – could account for almost 25% of his lifetime tournament winnings.

With $40,045,583 recorded by the Hendon Mob database at the time of writing, Daniel sits in 2nd spot on the all-time list behind Justin Bonomo.

Whether he actually intends to take the polling results as a clarion call to out those who haven’t paid him, or if it’s perhaps a warning shot to his creditors isn’t clear, but some big names have weighed in on the debate already.

Yes. Make all dishonest debts public to save others from getting scammed as well

— Ryan Riess (@RyanRiess1) June 21, 2019

DNegs gave an example of what his World Series of Poker ‘banking problems’ look like…

 

Example of dishonest that has happened to me multiple times at WSOP:

“I have a wire coming in a couple days”

“This will save me a trip to LA”

I did not get the money and still haven’t.

— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 21, 2019

 

Phil Galfond was among those sitting on the majority side of only outing those who have been dishonest in their dealings with Negreana, prompting a little joke from the Canadian…

 

Ok let’s start with Phil Galfond:

8 years ago he asked for $5 to tip the cocktail waitress and promised to pay it back.

He has made no attempts to do so. Lenders beware.

***this is a joke***

— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 21, 2019

 

Jungleman Dan Cates, Bill Perkins and John Duthie all gave their thoughts on Negreanu’s problem.

Cates remarked, “Well people who have no honor should probably at least be punished socially (shamed)” while Perkins joked:I’m telling you checks in the mail!”

Duthie relates that he too has loaned money and never seen it again, saying: “If someone (anyone) capitalises on your good nature, knowing they will never repay you, then this is theft, pure and simple”.

 

Bad debts, and the scam versions of it, however, are a serious matter. This year alone there have been two high-profile cases in the poker community -with Eli Elezra and Randall Emmett as the main players.

 

Elezra was outed in January as owing Abe Mosseri $853,000, with a further mostly-unpaid loan of $100k from Cole South, and rumours of many, many more owed by the Israeli.

The Elezra debts came to light after an AMA session as he launched his autobiography, and the translator of Eli’s original work in Hebrew joined in the Negreanu debate…

 

Treat others as you’d like to be treated. You already do that, so no need to change your modus operandi.

— Robbie Strazynski (@cardplayerlife) 21 June 2019

Even more recently, producer and amateur poker player Randall Emmett was panicked into repaying $1million to rapper 50Cent in the now-infamous ‘fofty’ affair.

I got my money, so I have no problem with Randall Emmett, in fact I’m wishing him and his family a very blessed day. positive vibes now guys. LOL #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac #bellator pic.twitter.com/ieFjoLrVUc

— 50cent (@50cent) April 29, 2019

 

Back to the here and now with Negreanu’s ‘outing poll’ and there was an unexpected tweet offering up some ‘old school’ advice on how to settle matters…

When people owe me money, I throw my fists. Ask @phil_hellmuth

Daniel Negreanu described as The Leader of Stupid Inc. in Twitter attack

Daniel Negreanu is no stranger to Twitter spats, but his blocking of one user has backfired spectacularly – an anonymous poker insider account fighting back with a vicious essay on KidPoker’s alleged failings and hypocrisy…

 

NEW: My new essay on poker. “The Leader of Stupid Inc.” A 5,600 word opinion piece on a beloved man-child who bullied and started a fight with a nobody. And the nobody decides to fight back,https://t.co/WD4gmHy14J

— Rachel Lees (@rachelees69) June 19, 2019

Who ‘Rachel Lees’ is remains unknown, but ‘her’ inside knowledge of the poker industry and business world has seen 2500 tweets in 2 and a half months focusing mainly on the pitfalls and perils of the poker community.

That, inevitably, brought Negreanu and Lees together – “a firestorm of back-and-forth arguments that were never likely to have a happy ending…”

The man who says and does stupid things with a vengeance has finally blocked me. I have blocked him back.

— Rachel Lees (@rachelees69) June 19, 2019

The “150+-strong mob that blindly attacked me,” Lees claims after she disagreed with DNegs, is part of what has led to her plan to leave ‘poker Twitter’.  Her parting shot aimed at ‘The Leader of Stupid Inc.’ however, is a brutal dismantling of Negreanu from start to finish.

This is in part, says Lees, because:

“Daniel Negreanu is a high-school dropout. His youth was spent running around hustling. He may be a poker genius or savant. However, I do not think his lack of formal education is the sole cause of his stupidity. Far from it.”

One of Daniel Negreanu’s many Twitter wars

 

Negreanu has been involved in many of the biggest Twitter wars seen in poker circles, falling out with Doug Polk, Shaun Deeb, Sam Greenwood, Tom Dwan, Mike Matusow and even Phil Hellmuth.

His ‘More rake is better’ duel with Polk made headline news every time the contentious issue was raised.

Doug Polk believes that Daniel Negreanu was fired by PokerStars

Just a couple of days ago Doug Polk was firing shots at Daniel Negreanu on Joe Ingram’s Poker Life Podcast once again.

Doug said in the interview that he supposes that Daniel Negreanuf was fired by PokerStars because of his ongoing arguments and antics.

“Daniel Negreanu wants all to hurt just as long as his own self-interest is preserved”

Rachel Lees picks this topic as a clear sign that “DN wants all to hurt just as long as his own self-interest is preserved”.

Lees claims that her calling Daniel “a hypocrite” was the final straw for the recently-married Canadian, who also parted ways with PokerStars just last month.

You are free to respectfully debate issues. I wouldn’t block you for that.

Call me a hypocrite, especially when you are way off base and out of line, and that’s headed towards block status.

It’s up to you what you choose to do with that.

— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 16, 2019

Lees argues that “when you litter the world with as many random opinions as he has over the years, things are going to contradict and conflict:

This is just a fact. For someone to be so angry at being called hypocritical or a hypocrite just baffles me”.

Rachel Lees focuses on poker controversies in her writings

The attack on Negreanu, justified or not, is a lengthy one. Recent controversies such as the ‘Johnnie Vibes MarkUp’ affair, the Shaun Deeb overweight/premature death jibe, and the ‘Hendon Mob top losers’ debacle are all covered by Lees.

“It’s not pretty, but the buck lies with Negreanu and with those who follow him”, says Lee.

“UNFOLLOW him and send a message, if not to him at least to yourself”, she states in a ‘Call to Arms’, adding: “Lurk instead if you are addicted to his stupidity”.

Patrik Antonius and Sofia Lövgren send out a scammer warning

Patrik Antonius and Sofia Lövgren both took to social media yesterday to warn poker players about a dangerous serial scammer – named as Samuel Grassi – who has recently been released from prison…

Antonius’ initial Instagram story, now reduced to a single warning photo collage, related how Italian scammer Grassi has used photos taken with the Finnish poker legend to persuade others in the poker community to part with huge sums of money.

Samuel Grassi just came out of prison and has sexually assaulted women before

It also claims that he has used threats of violence against poker players and others to keep them quiet about his illegal activities, Grassi having been jailed in the past for his scams and other crimes.

Antonius also alleged that he knew of at least two women who had been sexually assaulted by Grassi – this the most likely reason for his Instagram story being edited down.

Sofia Lövgren takes to Social Media

Swedish pro Sofia Lövgren followed up Antonius’ account of the serial scammer’s methods with her own story about Grassi.

This is a WARNING! Please watch the video on @Patrik_Antonius insta-story. https://t.co/f0NPB1fxCO
Watch out for scammer Samuel Grassi!! pic.twitter.com/QZfFLGSBmr

— Sofia Lövgren (@Sofia_Lovgren) June 16, 2019

 

A tearful Lövgren states:

“This guy, Samuel Grassi, also stole money from me. Please help us share this video in the whole poker community, on social media – we don’t want anyone to ever get scammed by this guy again”.

Grassi’s criminal record shows a long list of crimes and fraud

A quick search of Samuel Grassi online shows a horrendous list of fraud and crimes committed by the now 39-year old.

Czech poker media avidly followed court cases from Prague during 2016 and 2017 in which Grassi was convicted of defrauding poker players of more than 4million Czech crowns (about £140,000/€155,000/$175,000).

Spanish Pro David Laka Calzada also among the victims

Among his victims was the young Spanish poker player David Laka Calzada.

The Spaniard, who took down massive scores at the partypoker MILLIONS festival Sochi in 2017, was one of many scammed by Grassi, and explained Grassi’s modus operandi to a Prague court.

Calzada stated: “He showed me photos in a mobile phone, he claimed to be an entrepreneur. He went everywhere with his entourage, with his gorilla,” supporting Antonius’ recent warning.

Grassi, who sometimes goes by the name Samuel de Grassi, was revealed in the Czech case and others to have used photos of himself with famous footballers and poker players to lure unsuspecting victims into trusting his claimed position as a manager…

“He supported his claims with photographs from famous footballers, such as Ronaldo,” a spokesman for the Czech Police, Tomáš Hulan, was reported as saying.

Samuel Grassi was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison

Grassi was sentenced to two and a half years in jail for his Czech offences, the media reporting that he also faced more charges in the Czech Republic as well as similar charges in French courts.

Antonius’ now-deleted story mentioned that Grassi had recently been released from prison in France, but it is unclear how much jailtime he actually served in both countries.

Steve O’Dwyer avoids getting scammed

Highroller specialist Steve O’Dwyer also took to Twitter to relate a near-miss with the scumbag scamster…

I ran into Samuel Grassi several years ago and he tried to get me to come play a private high stakes game, name dropping @Patrik_Antonius and several other high stakes players, showing me pictures of himself with the people he was name dropping. https://t.co/nOnHxwJmlI

— steveodwyer (@steveodwyer) June 16, 2019

 

Again Grassi followed his formulaic scamming approach, but fortunately for O’Dwyer he checked with some friends – Grassi scared off when O’Dwyer tried to snap a pic of him…

I was skeptical and msgd one of the ppl he name dropped to see if they knew him and they said “no, but get a picture of him.” I tried to get a sneaky picture of him but he noticed, got real agitated with me and then left. Over the next few months I heard of him scamming others.

— steveodwyer (@steveodwyer) June 16, 2019

 

Despite having a Hendon Mob listing showing $60,359 in cashes, stories from the Czech poker community indicate that Grassi’s play was random and erratic to say the least.

The 2016 WSOP Main Event final tablist, Vojtech Ruzicka, recalls how Grassi spewed four €5k buy-ins at the WPT Prague event, others sharing stories such as ‘a single open shove from UTG, he boasted a combination of 3, 2. “I would bet my dog, my Bentley and my sister,” Grassi said after the hand.’

Warnings should be taken seriously

The warnings about Grassi and his history of scamming and threatening poker players should be taken very seriously by the community.

Although a fairly easy to recognise person, Lovgren tweeted some details of Grassi’s tattoos to help you spot him – the scammer also having a small tattoo on the right side of his neck.

Recap of VIP-Grinders Online Poker Challenge Event #3

After the first two events it gets slowly but surely interesting in the leaderboard, where the really big prizes and 3 x packages for the partypoker MILLIONS Europe worth €15,000 are up for grabs!

A total of 42 players paid the $5 buy-in and competed for the whopping $500 Guarantee. Action was fast and furious and it took only 2 hours until we reached the bubble.

“AntonsKeda” was the last player, who had to leave the tournament empty-handed, while the remaining 6 players secured themselves a minimum of $27,50 with $185 up top!

Doug Polk fires shots in Joey Ingram’s Pokerlife Podcast

Doug Polk was back on Joe Ingram’s podcast last week. As usual, he didn’t hold back.

Ingram did everything to put his guest in a combative mood. He titled the live stream “Doug Polk UNLEASHED” and put Daniel Negreanu’s picture next to Polk in the thumbnail.

Alex Foxen’s Message to Doug Polk

However, who got the best of it from Polk wasn’t Negreanu – it was Alex Foxen.

In June of 2018, Polk made a video discussing whether or not Foxen and his girlfriend, Kristen Bicknell colluded with each other in a tournament. The poker playing couple made it to the final 3 and, as some people allege, were softplaying against each to the detriment of the third player.

We Need To Talk About COLLUSION In Poker - YouTube

Foxen didn’t take kindly to Polk’s speculation and – as Polk revealed in the most recent episode of Joe Ingram’s podcast – actually messaged him.

Doug Polk’s summary of the incident

Polk recalled the strange events as such:

“Oh my fucking god, Alex Foxen, dude. (…) I did a video of him and his girlfriend colluding in a tournament. (…) In the video, (…) I was too nice to him. (…) I used a lot of language that was very on the fence, ‘cause I take that responsibility very seriously. And then, I look at my phone and I get sent this novel from Alex Foxen. (…) It was like, ‘you probably don’t know much about tournaments, but how they work in those spots…’ I’m like, okay, so you’re gonna talk to me like I’m a fucking 3-year-old.”

 

Doug Polk also went on to claim that Foxen actually threatened him to take down his video but, evidently, he didn’t comply.

He also got really fervent, complaining about how every time he calls somebody out in the poker world for doing something shady, he gets blamed by them, instead of them taking responsibility for their actions.

In his impassioned rant, he brings up Alec Torelli’s chiphiding scandal as an example.

Doug Polk vs. Daniel Negreanu Again

Even though Foxen as the one who got the most of  Polk’s venom, “KidPoker” also got a mention.

Ingram asked Polk about Negreanu’s departure from PokerStars.

They agreed that strange that Negreanu has said so little about parting ways with Stars. They also speculate that either the poker room didn’t offer enough money for Negreanu to expand his contract, or they just outright fired him.

As for the reasons, many believe that it was Negreanu’s controversial antics that cost him his job. Think of him posting a picture o his bathing suit bulge on Instagram, or getting into Twitter spats with podcast hosts.

However, Polk thinks it’s a different issue, heavily criticizing PokerStars instead.

“I think it kind of just indicated a shift in the PokerStars strategy away from sponsored pros. You know, if you’re selling people slot machines, do you really need slot grinders that people look up to? No. Slot machines. Come play our slots.”

Other Topics Discussed by Doug Polk and Joe Ingram

Polk and Ingram touched on a wide variety of other topics.

They talked about Polk’s return to the WSOP. He played that the $10K NLHE heads-up event and claims he’s planning on playing the Main Event as well.

However, he made the confession that he no longer cares about winning or losing in poker. He says that when he plays the game nowadays he’s often bored and feels like he shouldn’t be there at all.

They also made a video making prop bet, talked about weight loss and fitness and cryptocurrency.
