People that create fake accounts on facebook, twitter, myspace (examples), and pretend to be someone else, seems to become more and more common every day. Patrik Antonius, the Finnish poker pro, is someone that has got to experience this. Someone has created an account on twitter in his name and posted comments about the people he played against at bobby's room, and also written some mean things about Doyle Brunson.
- I have never heard about twitter until last summer; Patrik says and continues....
- I don't even know how it works. One day, Doyle Brunson came up to me in Las Vegas and asked what the hell I had been writing about him.
The twitter-post that "Antonius" had written about Doyle Brunson said that Doyle had been playing really bad against him at Bobby's room, and also something about Doyle Brunson becoming senile.
- I can really understand why Doyle became so upset; Antonius says
So what will Patrik Antonius do about this? The answer is probably nothing. There are several fake accounts with him out there, and if he manages to close down one, there will most probably be a new fake account in no time.
