The Muck: A Call to Stop Slowrolling and the Final $25K Fantasy Ruling

Daniel Negreanu was at the center of Twitter drama once again.

The 50th annual World Series of Poker is nearing the halfway mark, and as always, there is no shortage of Twitter drama along the way. PokerNews continues to write about these nuggets from Twitter during week three of the WSOP for this week's Muck edition.

DNegs Calls for a Stop to Slowrolling

In the most recent back-and-forth banter on Twitter, Daniel Negreanu called for a stop to slowrolling. For those following along, Negreanu and Shaun Deeb have been battling in the poker Twitter streets and it is assumed this was aimed at Deeb.

As expected, Deeb responded in quick succession, seeking a "DNegs approved" stamp on all things poker, social media and food.

Negreanu continued by claiming he is not bothered by being slowrolled, and he simply sees it "as classless and rude for the most part." He went as far as calling it sociopathic.

If you're unsure exactly how a slowroll works, PokerNews breaks things down when Niall Farrell slowrolled Michael Gagliano and then Deeb got a taste of his own medicine at the 2018 WSOP.

Final Ruling in the $25K Fantasy Draft Arbitration

Last week, the WSOP added a $50,000 Final Fifty High Roller to the schedule. Players involved in the $25,000 fantasy draft were debating on Twitter whether or not it should count for points. Some argued that it would have changed drafting strategy, but others pointed out that everyone was equally in the dark so it was all fair.

In the end, Negreanu sought arbitration from a panel of respected players.

In the end, it was decided that the $50,000 Final Fifty High Roller will not count for points in the draft.
