You have to give them credit for at least trying, but for now the first-ever “green” poker table will simply be a display model. The eco-friendly tournament poker table is made from 98% sustainable materials and will be on display in the exhibit area at the Rio during this year’s World Series of Poker. Some of the table’s eco-friendly manufacturing include:
– All wood is FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified,
– All paints and stains used in the table are formaldehyde free,
– The table is assembled with water based adhesives.
Maybe they can still use the eco-friendly poker table for the Final Table at the Main Event, which won’t play out until November.
There have been a couple of high-profile incidents of online poker cheating. One of online poker’s best players, Sorel Mizzi “Imper1um”, was caught last year buying an account from the former managing editor of Bluff Magazine, Chris Vaughn. Vaughn had made the final table of a tournament, and sold the account to Mizzi, who went on to win the event and almost $200,000. They were caught and Mizzi was banned from playing online.
But now BetFair.com has not only allowed Mizzi to play there, but they have made him a member of team BetFair. Why is a company hiring a known cheater when there is plenty of young online talent out there? Especially a company called ‘BetFair’. Are you kidding me? Mizzi is the exact opposite of someone that bets fair – he cheats. And cheaters never prosper.
