RE: Mark Seif Speaks

Discussion of the Absolute Poker brouhaha carries on. Currently all eyes are focussed on Mark Seif, as the forum sleuths who cracked the case to reveal an online poker company’s crooked ways are now looking for a Saddam Hussein to execute … you know, since we can’t really find Osama bin Laden AJ Green.

One poster on 2+2 actually transcribed some of my recorded conversation with Seif, revealing the masterful interview techniques of a highly skilled professional journalist:

Begin: 2:47

m: Well, specifically Dan, I’m talking about implications that I somehow benefited from or engaged in any of the malfeasance…

d: um, huh

m: …and I have categorically …(gggg)

d: um, huh

m: …and I am doing that right NOW…

d: um, huh

m: …and I will continue to do that because I have never, not once, EVER been able to see ANYBODY’S hole cards, other than mine, on ANY poker site that I have EVER played on…

d: um, huh

m: …nor have I had RELAYED to me any of that information.

d: um, huh

m: In fact, I have agreed just recently, I just agreed yesterday when Nat Arem contacted me via email….

d: um, huh

m: I agreed to have my entire SESSION that was at issue from February, 2006…

d: um, huh

m: …against Stuckinpgh, I have agreed to have ALL my hole cards turned FACE UP so that the ENTIRE match is exposed to the WHOLE world face up.

d: um, huh

m: I have never, uh, requested the hand histories before.

d: um, huh

m: I’ve not asked that anything be done with those. I’m fine with THEM getting…

d: sure

m: …the hand histories and exposing them.

End: 3:47
