Down Night

Decided to call it a night after losing two buys. No big deal. Anyway. I have a question for you all. Justin Bonomo AKA Big Fucking Cheater signed with Bodog. I guess my multi-part question is how do you feel about this and should Bodog want to associate it's good name with a cheat? I have mixed feelings. I mean one the one hand there is something for forgiveness and letting someone get on with their lives. On the other hand he is a cheat and was not too convincing when he apologized. I really think Bodog could have done a better job picking a spokesperson for their site. Especially in light of the recent scandals at Absolute and UB. I would want to stay as far away from any hint of inpropriaty as possible. Just my thoughts.

Oh and Katitude. You GO GIRL! I wanna hear good things in the morning. Like my favorite biker babe won a TOC seat. That would rock.

they were kids, they didn't know any better, some of them didn't even know it was against the rules.

at least justin has conducted himself very well after his scandal and from everything i read he's learned his lesson. plus he's a terrific player and runs hot almost every time he plays.

i say ok.

Known cheaters should not be sponsored by poker sites.
The idea they did not know it was cheating is ludicrous. If they understand the myriad complexities of poker sufficiently to win consistently (and clearly they do), then there is no way that they did not know it was cheating.

I'm not sure ZeeJustin's paid his fair price, and I also don't believe he's shown a bit of actual remorse.

That said, I'm not certain it's appropriate to consider it a lifetime offense, ya know? I mean, if he gets this endorsement when he's 40, do we hold his multiaccounting at 19 against him? If not, then do we do it when he's 30? 25?

I'm not sure there's an answer that isn't self-righteous.
