Doyle Brunson and Patrik Antonius "twitter fight"

Tags: doyle brunson, fight, patrik antonius, twitter.
Posted on 01 September 2009 by "T".

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.

Brunson is definitly hooked. Makes me wonder if someone is doing it on his behalf though as most Jerry Atrics can't use a microwave, let alone a laptop/blackberry lol

Internet is probably the worst fear for stars. Anyone can create an acount with the name of a pro and write or do whatever he wants. But other pros shouldnt create conflits because of that, if it is not on oficial sites. They also know the power and lenght of piracy, so its better not to care about it.

It will be better to create my account on twitter fast, before someone else take my name and starts insulting Phil Ivey. I don't want him chasing me in Las Vegas, if I get there one day hehe.

Seriously thsi is really sad. That's one of the reason why I don't like sites like this or Facebook, you never knows who is behind a pc.

lol what some people will do for some minutes of fame and being in a famous persons shoes... btw i don't really see whats the hype about twitter ?_?
 Jewcifer19/09/2009 18:21:30 GMT
Doyle handled the situation like a man and confronted Patrick. Patrick gave his honest reply so their issue should be squashed. Observers of twitter are being what the program suggests them to be, twits.
