Super-Breaking Poker News
In a developing story, recent information has leaked from the offices of some formerly fertile douchebag claiming that a certain, well-known poker professional has committed the single greatest sin in the game - namely welching on a marker.
The player in question has not been identified, but sources point to either this person, this person, this person, this person, this person, this person, this person or this person.
Apparently, the player in question managed to lose $60,000 in one evening in a $0.25/$0.50 game at an established, underground card-room, located somewhere in North Texas.
After the loss, the player may or may not have written a check to cover the debt and then requested that the check recipient (who might be this person, this person, this person, this person or this person) hold the check for one day when the check would be exchanged for three-$20,000 chips from this Las Vegas casino.
The following morning, the loser called the winner and claimed that collusion was clearly the reason for his/her losses and refused to pay the marker.
Interestingly enough, this same player allegedly had another outstanding marker for over three years. That marker's estimated value was somewhere between $9.50 and $16,725 and was owed to one of our own Batfaces. He claims he was able to finally receive payment by "using his anger."
Again, the story is still developing, but we think someone is about to get kah-rah-tayed.
