Technology News: Internet Fraud: Cheating Scandal Roils Online Gambling Industry
http://www.technewsworld.com/story/65325.html


Eu bem tinha estranhado esta manhã terem falado de um gambling scandal relatado no 60' da CBS, mas caguei de alto naquilo e segui em frente. Até que dei de caras com um feed no google e fui ver o que era...

E qual é o meu espanto, quando foram falar de algo que está morto e enterrado há quase mais de um ano!!!


"Web sites and online forums dedicated to Internet poker had plenty to say about the CBS program's report. From a story on PartTimePoker.com: "Mostly, the story portrays online poker as an unregulated industry where cheating is possible and has occurred -- namely in the AP/UB scandal -- but stops short of saying online poker as a whole is entirely crooked and filled with cheaters."

But a poster on the TwoPlusTwo message board wasn't bluffing with this comment: "The general public is not going to differentiate between UB, Absolute or any other poker site. This will just make everything look crooked to the public eye. This is NOT good news and will not help internet poker imo [in my opinion].""


Se a ideia é assustar o americano comum, que acabou de ver o SNF e espera algo mais informativo e menos entretenedor... perdão, manter-lhe na cabeça a ideia que o póquer na internet é tudo batota e assim, sem precisar de dizer, levar o tele-espectador a concluir que o Jogo é mau, justificando assim as posições de certos estados puritanos a manterem a actual situação, então a CBS merece uns dez pontos de tipster:


"Some states have tried unique methods to enforce regulation on the industry, Fleming said. Kentucky's state attorney general tried to have the domain names of gambling Web sites declared "gambling devices," but an appellate court has brought that effort to a halt. The Missouri AG even went so far as to arrest the CEO of a UK-based gambling Web site while he was passing through the St. Louis airport during a layover."


Haja paciência, que um tipo começa logo a pensar numa realidade alternativa, em que todos os barcos de puritanos se tinham afundado todos no Atlântico Norte... :duh:

Cheira tão mal, que até passo a palavra ao Mike Sexton:

60 Minutes and More by Mike Sexton
http://www.pokernewsdaily.com/60-minutes-and-more-by-mike-sexton-769/


"I was on a panel that was invited by the PPA (Poker Players Association) to represent the poker world on this 60 Minutes segment.  That panel consisted of myself, Linda Johnson, and Greg Raymer.  Our presence was not to defend these sites (because we couldn’t - and wouldn’t), but rather to offer our input as to why online poker should be regulated, legalized, and taxed.  Steve Kroft conducted an interview with us for nearly an hour during the WSOP at the Rio.

We expressed our disappointment and irritation regarding the cheating scandal and why that was the prime reason the online poker industry should be regulated (Money for the government would top the list by those who legalize it). Our panel also expressed that “freedom of choice” and individual responsibility should prevail when it comes to playing online poker.  We were notified a few days prior to the air date that our panel discussion had been cut from the show (My wife, who didn’t want me to do the 60 Minutes show to start with, was overjoyed when she heard we were cut from the show).

Truthfully, it didn’t bother me that our panel was cut from the show, as I knew 60 Minutes’ mission would be to put a very negative slant toward online poker. What did irritate me was that the elimination of our panel meant eliminating anything positive about online poker.  To see an example of that, just look at their first sentence: “Online poker is illegal in the United States.”  Many in the industry would adamantly disagree with that statement.

When Kroft said it to us, it was quickly refuted by Greg Raymer (who, in addition to being a former World Champion, is also a lawyer).  He firmly told Kroft that there were no federal laws against playing poker online, but that some states did have statutes against it.  I then said, “Online poker has been around since 1996.  If’ it’s illegal, then why hasn’t anyone ever been arrested or indicted for playing online poker?”  Neither of us got a response."


Gajos mal informados, são assim, levam logo o troco e ficam calados. Mas depois já não podiam dizer no programa que o póquer online nos EUA é ilegal...

É a velha bosta da mentira muitas vezes contada...

Então vai ao blog do Mike Matusaw ver o que ele disse de ter sido convidado várias vezes para jogar na absolute :lol:


Foi na absolute que comecei a jogar online e tem graça que na mesa de high stakes havia um jogador que não sabia escrever e ganhava sempre :cool:

O que me chateia nestas mer das, não é o facto de falarem de algo que já tem barbas, mas sim a direcção editorial que dão à questão e à forma como propagandeam o póquer online. Vá lá, tiveram sorte em não apanhar com o Sócrates a impingir-lhes o Magalhães...

Quando dizem que o "gaming online" é pouco ou quase nada regulamentado, parece que dão a entender que Malta e Gilbraltar e outras entidades regulamentadoras são pouco respeitáveis... É claro que o que interessa "atacar" foi a entidade supervisora da AP/UB... E queixa-se o Constâncio de estar a ser linchado... :roll:


Mais uma vez, a culpa é dos ameríndios... :doido:
