WBCOOP Best blog winner an RSI employee??

Well, look at that, the winner of the 2012 best blogger and $5,000 cash is, yes, an RSI employee. For any that don't know, RSI is the owner of Stars & PSO their pokerschool. The player in Question is a moderator @ PSO.

HUGE CONFLICT OF INTERSET?? you be the judge.

Unless they rigged the software, I don't see why this shouldn't be allowed.

Re: WBCOOP Best blog winner an RSI employee??

his blog is fine, but as a paid employee of PSO, which is owned by PokerStars, I see it as a conflict of interest.

Casino's don't let their employees play the games there for the same reason. It's all conflict of interest.

Re: WBCOOP Best blog winner an RSI employee??

Who cares? If his blog is good, he should be able to win. You really think they are going to righ the total election just to give some moderator $5k? Don't be such an attentionwhore and just be happy for the guy. They shouldn't ban you for asking questions but I don't really think anyone cares.

Webjoker, if you don't care, why are you posting??

I'd like to post a link to my video, but not sure if its allowed, I'll check with Rules & Regs before I post any link off this site.
