Suddenly the poker pro attacked one man in the queue for no reason with karate kicks . The man who got attacked filed a report against the poker pro, who refused to admit what he had done.

The poker club Krukan in Stockholm is the biggest poker club in Sweden since it opened last year. Krukan is known to be a serious club where no shady business whatsoever is going on. However, sometimes that's not even enough. Last Friday the police (by order of the lottery inspection and office of the public prosecutor) paid them a visit. Around 80-100 players were at that time in the club, playing tournaments and cash games. The police stopped all games at once, took everyones personal details and confiscated all chips/tokens.

Poker Pro charged with assault

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.
