Re: 60 Minutes considering Absolute Poker story

i think this would be interesting to see since the show will be geared towards a viewing audience that may not be so familiar with poker and online poker....

i would really like to see how they unravel the story...and whether they put their own spin on things

Good. This sounds to me like the story was given a "go".

I think I said this before, I am fine with this story. Of course, depends on how they present it. Honestly, if this helps clean up matters, what is to be worried about?

I think those who are suggesting that this publicity will damage online poker generally are wrong. Most people know what poker is, know that there is a element of gambling involved, and know that it is fun. That's not news.

Doing a story on a scandal involving crooked players can only spur the sites to get serious about security, fair dealing, bots and collusion.

By the way, I bet this is what happened to that Joe Hachem story it was rumored they were going to do - it kind of morphed into a story on an online poker scandal. I wonder if he will comment.
