Daniel Negreanu introduced the New Year in typical Twitter style, offering to answer any question for $ 10,000 – a nod to the $ 10,000 lie detector freeroll he gifted Tim Reilly. .
Also, if anyone wants to pay me $ 10,000 to answer any questions they can think of, I would be happy to do so. https://t.co/IDn59zNjv9

Negreanu took to Twitter to find out whether or not Tim Reilly used a fake vaccination card in the recent WSOP, which Reilly – a vocal critic of the anti-vaccine mandate, denies.
Notorious poker bastard Nicholas ‘NickyP’ Palma had accused Reilly of being among a number of players who allegedly paid a CVS employee to tamper with their vaccination on the system, thereby giving them a ‘legitimate’ vaccination card.
Palma tweeted: “… @timreillypoker has never been vaccinated and used a fake vax card to play wsop this year. It’s not fair to the rest of us who have been vaxxed … ”
Then “Jeopardy” star and poker pro Alex Jacob stepped into the fight, calling out Reilly about the timing of his various tweets and complaints.
“So @TimReillyPoker sent me a video of him pulling out his vax card. The date listed is 12/9/21, which doesn’t seem to make sense with his 7/10/21 feed about ne not be able to play because it is not vaxed Either this thread is a big lie, or the card is false.
When Daniel Negreanu steps into a discussion on Twitter, you know it’s going to a) go viral and b) almost certainly involve high stakes bets to find out the truth.
Negreanu took to the DATPoker podcast to explain how his initial offer of $ 10,000 to Reilly to take a lie detector test was essentially a freeroll for the Boston pro.

Reilly’s response to Dneg’s $ 10,000 lie detector offer was to state that he would “take one for free”, but only if Negreanu answered a question, which made the GGPoker ambassador very much. lively.
“Go to the fire! I’m not gay, I have a big penis, I’ve never had a gloryhole situation, ”Negreanu said, adding,“ I’m not scared!
Too much information for some, but as Negreanu explained, “One of the perks of having money is that I can throw $ 10,000 at something to call bullshit out of bullshit.”
Meanwhile, as the anti-vaxxer party compared itself to social activists like Rosa Parks and Colin Kaepernick, Alex Jacob conducted a Twitter poll, which showed how much support Alex Foxen had among Jacobs supporters.

So far, the only money that seems to have traded hands amid all the Twitter poker bickering and bickering is the $ 100 per fake vaccine the CVS employee is said to have received.
Whether Reilly decides to take a bet by accepting Negreanu’s $ 10,000 “freeroll” remains to be seen.
