Man wins Borgata ladies’ event,
Lawsuit over theft of “Face the Ace”

by , Sep 13, 2009 | 12:27 pm

Some strange happenings in poker this Sunday:

Abraham Korotki, a WSOP Circuit Main Event winner in 2006, beat formidable odds to take down the $300 Borgata Ladies’ event on Saturday for just under $21,000. The “last woman standing”, Nicole Rowe, who recently discovered she had breast cancer, finished 2nd, good for just under $12,000.

On the Left Coast, TMZ.com reports that Poker PROductions, the makers of the NBC show Face The Ace, is being sued for $85,000,000 by Brandon McSmith, who said the company “stole” his idea called “The All-Star Poker Challenge”. McSmith’s idea consisted of a player having to defeat five pros in a series of heads-up matches to win prize money and a $10,000 WSOP Main Event seat, with the contestant having the option to risk their winnings after conquering their opponent. This lawsuit appears to top Gambling Times’ lawsuit against Scott Lazar for $1,000,000 for lack of product placement in the poker movie “Deal”, which grossed under $100,000 in lawsuits that will go nowhere.


Johnny Chan: On TMZ & Handicapped?

by , Feb 27, 2008 | 4:28 pm

I admit it. I check TMZ periodically to get my tabloid fix. There are worse things…

Who do I see being tapped by the paparazzi? Johnny Chan! Who knew that the Britney-stalkers were aware of a poker player?

Click here for the TMZ story and accompanying video.

The video shows Johnny leaving Mr. Chow in Hollywood with a painting of himself and trying to fit it into his car. And it shows a handicapped parking pass hanging from his rear view mirror.

A. Is Johnny handicapped?
B. Does he really need a special pass if he valet parks everywhere he goes?
C. Was it such a slow night in Hollywood that the paparazzi filmed Johnny Chan?
