FORMER ONLINE POKER OPERATOR IN PUBLIC SPAT OVER MONEY
The number of celebrities who have seen Twitter posts made in anger backfire should be a cautionary example for all users of socia online bingo l media communications, yet very public - and permanent - disputes still continue to surface on the site and its emailed content.
The latest very public industry spat was reported this weekend by the information site Poker Eagles, which detailed a squabble over money that erupted on Twitter and involved Dan Fleyshman, the high profile former CEO of Victory Poker which folded its cards after Black Friday; one of its erstwhile poker pros David The Maven Chicotsky and Bluff Magazine founder Eric Morris.
