what the heck happened to Randy "The Dreamcrusher" Jensen??

Please, will someone tell me what the heck happened to Randy "The Dreamcrusher" Jensen??

He was huge in the mid 2000's (look him up on youtube) and he won millions.

All of the sudden the guy vanished for about 6 years now.

WHAT HAPPENED TO RANDY JENSEN????

WHAT HAPPENED TO RANDY JENSEN????
This post was sure some crazy timing. Decided to read about the whole FTP fiasco and saw this post too.

I have been in Colorado for the past 3 years because i had a really horrible divorce that destroyed my bankroll , brought on because of getting cheated for 300k in a 3 way game with Russ Hamilton and Freddie Deeb. I beat Russ, and Freddie killed me, with plays that I could not even comprehend at the time. Little did I know that they were colluding and superusing me. (at the time)

I also got myself in some trouble with the law, because I drove a lot with out a valid drivers license, so I had to do like a year in jail, and couldn't leave the state of colorado because of probation.

I am now looking to restart my poker life and get back to the position I was in 3 years ago. If your mind isnt right it is easy to get buried in the world of high stakes poker. I think it was good in the long run. Humility and the plight of being busto really is probably good for the soul in the long run. But take it from me it really sucks to go from millionaire self rolled player, to someone who is starting over from complete scratch.

Wowser

There was always doubt about Freddy so this is a big accusation.

But maybe it is another brick in the wall.

Decent chance it is legit. No matches to any other accounts. IP location checks out.
I pulled this out of the other thread given the reply.

Re: what the heck happened to Randy "The Dreamcrusher" Jensen??

I thought that name seemed familiar...

Funny chat after I Dreamcrushed a scammer [forumserver.twoplustwo.com]

If tl;dr, at least read the last part of the chat where Jensen gets the scammer (who lost $600) to apologize to HIM.

A year in jail for not having a valid driver's license? Is the DMV really that awful of an experience?

Sounds like you dared to dream that a 3 way online poker game against one of the owners of the worlds most corrupt company was legit.

Any DUI's in your past? Because you sound a lot like a combination of Brad Booth and Mike Matusow with a dash of Lindsay Lohan behind the wheel.

Perhaps it was not well known how corrupt UB was at the time. If you played a high stakes game against phil hellmuth on UB would you assume you were being cheated?

I actually think it's fun to try and remember what happened to people that a)got a lot of tv time and then disappeared or b)got their 15 min. of fame and then disappeared.

Obviously I didn't expect Randy Jensen to reply since he has been AWOL for a while but I am glad to know he is alive and hopefully will come back into the poker world full steam ahead!!!

On a different note: Surprised to hear about Deeb - never heard his name mentioned for anything like that. Guess pretty much almost every "famous" pro back in the day was a cheater. Sad.

Might explain why Deeb went nuts over the "going south" joke on Poker After Dark instead of laughing it off. Guilty people act that way.
