RE: A Friend in Need… Missing Girl Found

by , Apr 16, 2009 | 8:18 pm

Frank Frisina of Life’s A Bluff has notified friends and followers through his Twitter account that his niece has been found safe and returned home. (Thanks, KevMath, for sending this great news to a non-Twitterer.) Jennifer had been missing since Saturday, but it seems we have a very positive outcome to a scary situation.


UPDATE: In response to speculation in the blogosphere that it was a runaway situation, Frank Frisina posted a response in his latest blog:

At the request of my niece and for the sake of her privacy, I have one final statement regarding last week’s ordeal;

She is safe and at home, she did NOT run away, and we are not releasing any more information at this time.

A Friend in Need: Frank at “Lifes A Bluff” Searching For Missing Niece

by , Apr 15, 2009 | 10:18 am

Age 14, approx 5′ 5″, 120/130 lbs, brown hair/eyes

This is a rather unusual post, and one that is not pleasant to write except to help in some way. Frank Frisina, one of the main dudes over at Life’s A Bluff and poker industry friend, is in desperate need of help. His 14-year old niece, Jennifer, is missing in Colorado, and Frank is beside himself with heartache. The Colorado Bureau of Investigations and Arapahoe County Sheriff’s office are involved, but it sure can’t hurt to get her picture out to the public and try to spread the word to our Colorado readers.


Frank of Life’s a Bluff vs. Poker Players Alliance

What exactly does the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) stand for?

Frank Frisina of Life’s a Bluff has posed that question, specifically as it relates to the organization’s mission statement that, in part, says it will ensure the integrity of the game of poker. The fact that the PPA would not and will not make an official statement about the recent online cheating scandals at Absolute Poker and UltimateBet was a major concern for Frank. And upon the conclusion of an e-mail interview with John Pappas, Executive Director of the PPA, Frank decided that John’s answers – or non-answers – were the straws that broke the donkey’s back.

Frank has officially terminated his membership with the PPA and has explained his reasons in great detail. Life’s a Bluff as a whole has also stopped any support of the PPA. He asks that others who agree with him stand up and do the same.

The introduction and the interview are well worth the read, as Frank poses some serious questions to the online poker community about organization, legislation, regulation, and membership organizations like the PPA.
