Negreanu and 2+2 have a spat, and “All In: The Poker Movie” is ready for its closeup. It’s all in Thursday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.
Negreanu vs. 2+2: So Daniel Negreanu got temporarily banned from the online poker forum twoplustwo.com for posting about the new iSeriesLive, which he is a part of. Apparently, it’s because he was trying to get “free advertising.” We’re guessing 2+2 is gonna get a shoutout in Daniel’s next video blog and we don’t see banning Daniel as a good PR move. Unless you subscribe to the idea that there is no such thing as bad publicity. More from Daniel on the incident here. And a recap of a Twitter exchange with a 2+2 mod here. And a 2+2 thread about the ban here.
