The Muck: Daniel Negreanu and Shaun Deeb Twitter Feud Gets Personal
Both Daniel Negreanu and Shaun Deeb have been involved in their share of Twitter feuds over the years, including engaging in plenty of spats between them. Recently, Negreanu was at it with Unibet Ambassadors and The Chip Race Podcast hosts David Lappin and Dara O'Kearney while Deeb has changed his name to "Markup Police" on Twitter and tasked himself with calling out players he judges to be charging too high markup.
Negreanu had defended Deeb's most recent markup police targets, including vlog personality Johnnie "JohnnieVibes" Moreno and Allen Kessler, but that was only the beginning. The latest feud between Deeb and Negreanu began innocently enough with "DNegs" asking the Twitterverse what a fair markup would be on pieces of a package that includes several smaller WSOP events.
For extra motivation to play my A-Game in the small buy in WSOP events I’m thinking of offering a package for those… https://t.co/f2TpoVdYVO— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker)
Deeb took issue with him charging any markup when selling for motivation purposes, and at this point, the disagreement still remained civil.

Things Get Personal
It appeared it all could have ended there but the next day things started to get personal as the "Markup Police" ruthlessly called people out, and Negreanu responded with some name-calling which then prompted some questioning of Negreanu's character. And it proceeded from there.

Deeb fired back shaming Negreanu for looking the other way when the Supernova Elite controversy took place at PokerStars, and Deeb defended his decision to play the SCOOP during the birth of his son.

Deeb's wife Ashley Deeb came to her husband's aid, confirming that the decision was mutual.
Just felt inclined to share my point of view https://t.co/pK0VgEgWL3— Ashley Deeb (@crashleyonfire)
The escalation continued as Deeb proposed a marriage last longer bet, and it isn't the first time Negreanu's fiancé Amanda Leatherman has been dragged into the fire during Twitter feuds between these two.

After things settled down, Negreanu released a vlog talking about the markup debate and the issue between 50 Cent and Randall Emmett. Perhaps the biggest topic in the video was Negreanu sharing that he will be selling his WSOP package at no markup and allow fans to invest for as little as $5.
