Interesting events with this years WSOP people

For the first time that I can recall, there are a number of legal issues involving people who did well in this year's WSOP Main Event!

Jamie Gold, who won the No Limit Texas Holdem Poker Main Event this year, is being sued for half his winnings. It is being claimed that he promised them to a 'friend', and there seems to be a taped telephone message regarding that from Jamie himself on the matter. Who knows... one thing for sure, is that people get screwy when there is 12Million involved! You can read more of this at Cardplayer.com by clicking Here.

NOW it comes out that Richard Lee, who first achieved fame by finishing sixth at the Main Event, is under investigation for running an online sports Book out of his home. Warrents were issued, and there was a 'raid' on his home that involved confications of computers, automobiles, ect.... The full article can be read Here.

thses things dont bode well for the sport, especially in light of pending legislation....
