Yes strange situation here, i don't know really if he is guilty or not, police let him go so they don't think that he did it specially so maybe they see this situation like an accident with no real wish from Senat to do any crime. Still only he himself knows how things really are

How newsworthy is this? The guy is in Forida, and is renovating his club, of course there are guns in the club because Murrica, there's an accident because that's what happens when there are guns everyone, and someone died. If he wasn't breaking any of his bail terms by playing in the tournament then let him have his money. He'll lose it all in the civil suit to be brought by the victim's family anyway. Plus, the club is called "Sugar Daddies Adult Cabaret"? He should be jailed for crimes against good taste.

Truly incredible this story of this player who becomes famous in the poker stories of the whole world through the wsop in las vegas, I have always wondered what is true in this news? But evidently they come from reliable sources and must be taken with pliers.-

so why this is a problem- dude got involved in a crime, maybe accidentally maybe not, but the police let him free on a bail, so he is all green to take part in this tournament, not breaking any rules or anything like that, and ends up winning cool 100k, probably even funnier would be if he ended up winning the whole tournament.
In this story there is nothing unusual ... so I think .... if a person was not arrested by a court decision for any crime, then why should not he play poker? ... Of course the fact that the killer played in the tournament a few Unusual, but as I said here there is nothing strange

I guess he didnt want to keep a low profile with what has happened. Bail or not he managed to win some money. If he was short, now he can use that for his trial. And i agree with what odysseus said. Bad taste on that name.

I thought if someone is out on a bond, they are allowed to travel to a restricted area within their state. But he traveled from Florida to Nevada without being arrested. This is perhaps an exception to general rule in criminal case. I can easily visualize the inside of “The Sugar Daddy's Adult Cabaret” strip joint. You will find this type of establishment almost all over the US.

Maybe this person just pulled away from his crime ... in any case, his winnings do not belong to the history of his crime .... just a man in the tournament played but it turned out that he is also a criminal ... as it seems to me it's only a newspaper crime
