    Poker Hall of SHAME

    Pokernews released an article with eight "nominees" for the Poker Hall of Shame:

    https://www.pokernews.com/news/2016/...2016-25924.htm

    What do you think? Who would be your top two picks?

    Mine would be Ray Bitar and Russ Hamilton, though honestly all of the nominees listed are deserving.

    Amarillo Slim was a consummate con man, but he had so much charm, nobody seemed to notice. Back in the day, before poker became "legitimate", it was actually a badge of honor to be a little shady.

    A shame that the only two doing jail time are the small-timers, while the real crooks get to keep most of their ill-gotten proceeds and are walking around scot free.

    Not as bad as Puggy Pearson. Puggy was a legend in terms of being an asshole to dealers.

    A good book is Al Alvarez's Biggest Game In Town. it tells how Moss tried to cheat the mafia and how he had to leave vegas for 20 years.

    Also of note, is Stuey Ungar, who called every dealer the same name "mother fucker"

    the story goes that one time a lady dealer challenged Stuey to a fight in the parking lot of the Horseshoe because she had enough of his antics. He'd tip well though, that's never been disputed.

    Another good one of Stuey is how he almost didn't get to defend his title in '81 because he spit in the face of a poker dealer named Harry Franks. Benny B banned him from the 'Shoe and it took his son Jack to step in and convince his dad that if Stuey didn't play, it would be bad publicity.

    Stuey was Hellmuth before Hellmuth was Hellmuth.. (Sans the Drug issues Stuey struggled with)..

    didn't she continue to rep lock poker after it was confirmed they were scumbags? I seem to remember a radio show where Druff says he was at her table at the WSOP and decided not to say anything bc shes a young girl and the table would think he was an asshole.

    Actually that was when she was wearing Full Tilt gear at the WSOP, after it was clear they had stolen our money.

    I was about to bash her for it, but everyone at the table loved her, and I knew my message wouldn't have gone over well. I had just arrived at the table. Also, since she wasn't at all a major figure in the Full Tilt scandal, bashing her for wearing the gear didn't seem worth the backlash I'd likely get.

    Lock was a different matter.

    She was one of the main faces of the site, and was repeatedly told that they weren't paying anyone.

    She ignored everyone and continued to promote Lock until the very end.

    Had she been at my table that year, I would have really given it to her.

    F her.
