Negreanu dating

With people recently empowered to share their stories about being victims of sexual misconduct, it should come as no surprise that the poker world isn’t immune from revelations about disgraceful behavior.

Semi-retired actor and poker regular James Woods found himself (again) in the crosshairs this week after actress Emily Perkins named him as an abuser, which sparked a Twitter fight with Daniel Negreanu that included threats of physical confrontation and taunts about legal action.

She is the second actress, however, to call out Woods for inappropriate behavior, as “General Hospital” actress Amber Tamblyn, now 34, has accused Woods of pursuing her when she was 16.

Woods had been publicly silent about Perkins’ claim, but apparently couldn’t resist saying something after Negreanu brought the latest allegations into the poker Twitter fray.

Because while it’s well known that Negreanu and Ng dated when she was 16, he was only 17 (or at most 18) at the time, as the two Canadians are only 14 months apart in age.

That’s a bit different than Woods’ case with Tamblyn, who alleges she was just a teenager fending off advances from a then-53-year-old man. ‘Even better’ he said.” Negreanu later called the star of the hit 1990s flick “Casino” a “hot piece of garbage,” and referred to Woods as “quite a scumbag” for a “pattern of dating teens as an old creepy dude.” When asked by one of his followers why he even bothers responding to “idiots” like Negreanu, Woods answered that he “already scraped him off my shoe.” Woods is just one of many notable personalities to face recent allegations of sexual misconduct.

Tamblyn went public with her distaste for the poker playing actor in September, writing an open letter about the incident, and tweeting, “James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. Numerous Hollywood performer and executives have recently been outed as alleged sexual predators, including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, actor Kevin Spacey, and comedian Louis CK.

Woods, however, is not the only person recognizable from poker to be caught up in the current purge of disgraced Hollywood personalities.

“Along with her brother, the Lederer family would be the king and queen of the poker Hall of Shame," Negreanu said.

Negreanu was nominated for Poker’s Hall of Fame in both 20 but wasn’t eligible this year thanks to a new rule that sets the minimum age for induction at 40.

First off, I've never played poker, less some fake chip games on Full tilt, to see if I could guess, with any success, my opponents hands.... Though I do miss, Helmuth & Matasow, & think Mike would be wise, to be a bit more Stoic at the table....

i always warned my son, DO NOT create a real account, as I believe cheating will be a problem. Then later i come to find, online cheating, as well as, at the table cheating is alive & well....

And how old was Evelyn Ng when you were her “mentor,” you hypocrite?
