PokerBowl Update
Prize money on its way, “PBE” says; Go Due Diligence!

Slowly but surely, the fate of the US PokerBowl becomes clear-ish …

Another semi-private email went out this weekend to the winners who are still awaiting to be paid out. It says cash is ready to be handed over to its rightful owners — so long as they promise not to sue after they collect. Fair enough … (Presumably reliable super-secret inside sources say the unpaid PokerBowl prize money totals more than $400,000) … Step 2 will be to make-good with team managers and vendors (who might-should-wanna get in touch with this help@pokerbusinessenterprises.com guy so they can square up some invoices).

Sounds plausibly legit, and I happen to fall in this category, so we’ll see …

    Who sends out due diligence letters in all caps? To quote Walter Sobchak: “Fuckin’ amateurs.”

    Dan, is this for real? Can anyone verify this with the Palms? Just seems too good to be true. Cheers, Vegas boy.
