Negs Goes All-In On Depp v Heard Slander Trial - Who needs Court TV when we have poker's biggest money earner breaking down what he calls "facts" in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard slander trial.

Plaintiff Johnny Depp, one of Hollywood's biggest stars, is making claim for three counts of defamation for "$50,000,000 +" in damages from defendant Amber Heard, another of the top stars in Hollywood, who is counterclaiming $100 million.

The trial is expected to conclude with closing arguments later in the week.

Negreanu has gone all-in on this trial.

He also claims that Amber was "caught lying about using the makeup that didn't exist back then to "cover her bruises" frequently, which was refuted by the makeup company in court" and says that Heard "admitted to domestic violence against Johnny. Plus suspicion of domestic violence against her own sister (her sister was discussing it with her friends by the poolside in a video clip), and assaulted her ex-best friend in public."

He adds: "She claims she's never wanted to be seen as a victim and wanted to move on, but appears in countless TV shows and articles talking about her "abuse" and "donation" non stop, literally appeared on every show she could to talk about her being a victim and being noble."

Matusow Questions Why Biden Would Remove His Mask When Outdoors - We love Mike "The Mouth" Matusow but it's always fun when he tweets something political and suffers the backlash of his "loyal" followers.

Case in point: On Saturday, "The Mouth" tweeted out a video of US President Joe Biden stepping off Airforce One donning a face mask to protect himself from Covid-19.  Biden is approaching his 80's and certainly susceptible to the virus, especially in-flight.

The video then shows Biden removing the mask as he greets others while still outdoors.

"If this doesn’t show you what a farce mask wearing is then I feel bad for you!"

The responses that followed were to die for.

Correct answer (we think): Twice last we checked in on Mike. He is fully vaccinated.

He's speaking of Mike (we think).

And not everyone is hating on Mike either.


Dan Coates Says "People Think Poker is About Lying, But Actually Poker is About the Truth"

"Poker is a business. It's about money management, maximizing profits, and not letting people scam you. It's also a competition," Matthew Marvin responded.

Giles Cagignan tweeted I concur. "Poker is about finding the truth in order to make your next move. This move can be bluff but bluffing without any idea of what the truth is is reckless."

Then there was this...

Liv Boeree Says Your Brain on Twitter is Being Hijacked by an Algorithm Designed to Maximise Engagement - "And the most efficient way to do that is through anger," she adds.

Dan Hightower responded:  "Notice how attendance at school board and city council meetings go up when people have a divisive topic to argue about? Twitter makes sure you have that on this platform. It’s not even about timeline. It’s about what is promoted to you and recommend."

Johnny J writes: "It's not like that. because there are no groups or anything like that on twitter for people to talk and exchange ideas qnd there's only a comment section, people will try to attract attention and since not everybody comes up with smart things to do so, they try to piss others off."

Liv Boeree is a popular British poker pro who has amassed $3,852,996 in live circuit winnings over her long career.  She currently ranks 18th on England's All Time Money List.
