Thread: Zee Justin no friend of PokerStars/EPT...

    Zee Justin no friend of PokerStars/EPT...

    I don't thing this has been posted yet, saw it a couple of days ago via twitter, seems like Justin Bonomo is refusing to do media interviews at PokerStars/EPT events unless compensated. I wonder if this will become the norm with other Pro's as well with the ongoing PokerStars rake issue.

    Pretty much looks like a complete asshole (as if he wasn't already) since I think he was the 4th person to bust. I wish he would have won the damn think and no one interviewed him and told him to go fuck himself. I don't understand the self importance of people like poker players. I wonder if they understand that they sound like douchebags

    Good article by Haley Hintze about this situation.

    I agree with most of it.

    The Scheinbergs made billions from rake and fees, then sold it for billions more. Where's Amaya supposed to recover the billions they spent. Amaya purchased Stars for way to much imo. I wonder if it's possible the CEO or reps of Amaya got a kickback from the Scheinbergs for agreeing to pay so much. What would stop them?

    Here is Bonomo's lol response to his critics:

    Basically his point is, "Do as I say, not as I do", regarding supporting Pokerstars.

    He wants to play in their tournaments (and pay rake to them) but not "promote them for free" because Amaya is so evil.

    Huh??

    Just read his posting. He's still insisting that whole couple million on the insider trading was "Long Term Plan" WTF.. it was nothing other then a quick money grab for him and a few friends kinda like what Mickelson did and got caught doing.. Bonomo is on crack for even trying to somehow connect the two and to equate everythingelse as some criminal act is just laughable.

    Bonomo's logic would be like Tiger Woods winning the Masters and then refusing to have his Green Jacket presentation be televised and wouldn't talk to the media afterwards.. (and honestly Tiger Woods would've had a much more legit reason given the membership rules at Augusta National regarding women and basically minorities as well)
