MD you're a super nice guy, so I understand your optimistic attitude.
But there is NO excuse for Kellner telling so many lies and making endless promises that he either will-not or can-not fulfill.
Potential investors or partners who pull the plug on deals with him (if they exist, and aren't just made up for him to scapegoat) are doing so for a simple reason: they've discovered he's inherently dishonest and WILL let them down.
If Kellner truly wanted to operate a successful tour, then sometime in the last 3 years he would have started demonstrating some ethics. Poker, especially in Canada, is such a small community that he cannot burn bridges for long and still hope to find fresh suckers to take advantage of.
