No. 2 Commander of US Nuclear Forces Now Linked to Counterfeit Poker Chips
Back in September of 2013 Navy Vice Admiral Tim Giardina was accused of passing fake gambling chips in a poker game at the Horseshoe Council Bluffs Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
After being suspended and demoted in rank, news has arrived from www.pbs.org that it is believed that Giardina created the fake chips himself and that he has always been very aware of what he was doing.
It is scary to think that the United States nuclear forces were under the control of this man since bluffing is a necessary art in poker...think of the ramifications in bluffing with nuclear forces.
Howard Lederer Appeared at the Poker Hall of Fame Induction
It is old news that Daniel Negreanu and Jack McClelland were inducted into the 2014 Poker Hall of Fame during the November Nine Final Table festivities. But did you know that Howard Lederer put in an appearance?
It is a curiosity to more than one that the founder and former president of Tiltware, previous owner of Full Tilt, that Lederer would show for the festivities. Negreanu and Lederer are not bosom buddies or pals. As a matter of fact Negreanu is in a continual war with Lederer's sister, Annie Duke, and blatatly made statements on his Vlog about baseball bats meeting Lederer's body parts when the Full Tilt debacle was in full swing.
New Jersey's Sports Betting Plans Shot Down...Again
New Jersey has been cleverly designing ways to bring sports betting to the state. The plan by State Senator Raymond D. Lesniak, D-Union was to have New Jersey lawmakers approach a hands-off practice that would allow sports betting into New Jersey. There were other factors involved but in essence the state would do nothing, neither authorize or regulate sports betting, and in doing that, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) would not be violated if sports bets were taken by racetracks and casinos in the Garden State.
The latest ruling on Friday by US District Judge Michael Shipp, a summary judgment, said the idea to lift the prohibitions pertaining to sports betting on a state-level at select venues did not provide the proper road map required to detour around the federal PASPA sports betting prohibition. Within an hour of Shipps ruling becoming public, advocates of New Jersey's sports betting filed a formal Notice of Appeal. A return trip to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals is on the way.
