It's a fact that David "Viffer" Peat and Shawn "Sheikh" Sheikhan (both well-known from GSN's High Stakes Poker) don't like each other. About 2 years ago the two created headlines when they started fighting during a tournament in Las Vegas. Now history has repeated itself...

Both versions of the same story can be caused by the same reason. So Sheikh is married and he started talking to Viffer’s girlfriend just to test his opponent’s reaction, and then the fight took place. Sheikh will never be looked as the good one on this story, taking in consideration his past in terms of problematic episodes.

Never liked Sheikh for what i've seen in HU tournaments and high stakes program, he always acted like a whiny dude, quite annoying and not even funny. People at the table didn't seem to like him that much either.. and his game never impressed me either. That being said this doesn't surprise me much.

Damn! So poker and boxing have their simularities when it comes to these guys ay? I'd liked to have seen the episode where ol boy broke the "mouth's" glasses. Used to like watching High Stakes as it was.
This is the sort of behavior that gives poker a bad reputation. It's really too bad that players like this can't be given a time out and not allowed to play poker for 6 months to a year. If their behavior starts costing them poker playing opportunities they would soon change.
