Poker Pro charged with assault
assault, poker pro, stockholm, sweden.
Posted on 16 April 2010 by "T".
According to one of Sweden's biggest newspaper, a famous Swedish poker player, who has become rich from playing poker, has been charged with assault. The poker player, whose name isn't public yet, has kicked and punched another man in a queue to a hot dog stand in central Stockholm on November 29 last year.
The poker player has admitted to the police that he was drunk that night, but he denies that he assaulted anyone. The victim is asking for a bit more than 500 euro in compensation for what he paid for visiting different doctors for his physical pain. If witnesses can confirm that the assaulted man's story is true, then its probably just for the poker millionaire to pay. If he's really lucky, he might get away with just paying the damages, which shouldn't hurt his bankroll so much. However, if he has sponsors, it might be a bit more expensive if they decide to end the deal.

| It would be a big loss for sponsors, not because he actually plays poker, but because of the negative image made...|

| how stupid , punching someone n a hotdog queue.|
dnt think someone will lodge a complaint without any incident.
500 euros might be nothing for him but he'll get lots of bad publicity which will surely hurt him

| 500 евроэто мелочи по сравнению с испорченной репутацией, поэтому лучше разойтись мирно, без публичного скандала|

| I like how it was "in queue for a hotdog stand". Of all places to get into a fight, a freaking hotdog stand? I'd really like to know how the fight started. |
"Hey man, you bought the last bratwurst. I wanted it. Prepare to die" lol.
