Is there any chance he is confusing the "FastFreddy" account with the real Fast Freddy?

Good! Enjoy your family. You know the right things to do. Sounds like you are on a good path. Keep going, I am pulling for you.

As for the game passing you by I am sure you can get into "shape" in a short time.

Interesting that anyone can remember this. I did ask if anyone wanted to buy pieces of me, for my scheduled appearance on High Stakes Poker. Unfortunately the forementioned loss is what made me unable to play on the show. So those scumbags Russ Hamilton and Freddie Deeb basically cost me my marriage, and my chance to get a huge win off of the dipshipts that they had on HSP.

I just pray I run into Russ sometime once I am back in the mix.

Sorry, but I'm not buying this. It's pretty obvious there is more to this story. There's no way a speeding ticket just happened to snowball into a year in jail while you stand idly by and watch it happen. You don't owe us an explanation but let's be real here and admit you're leaving things out.

Just looked it up, under Colorado law the maximum penalty for driving under suspended license is 180 days and a fine of 50 to 500 dollars.

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

Is this the first blatant, or actual scenario accusation of Freddy Deeb cheating and in cahoots with Russ Hamilton?

Has he been around the circuit much over the last few years?

wow

wow
if i remember correctly, Freddy's name came up years ago because of a large money transfer either between his account and Russ's on UB or his account and one of the other guilty accounts.

Freddy posted a reply I believe saying he was being paid for either an Aruba tourny finish or for something else that seemed plausible. Obv I don't remember all the details exactly, but I'm sure someone does.

Is it just me or am I the only one SHOCKED about what Randy alleges Freddy Deeb did to him???

I agree with the previous poster, it should be addressed - in fact at this point there are probably other "big name" pros that participated in this crap. I swear, everytime I think all the negative stuff is going away there is another allegation of more cheating, colluding, etc... Russ Hamilton is the pariah but there's probably a dozen others laughing themselves to sleep each night because they never got caught themselves.

WILL THIS **** EVER END???

No it won't. Get over it. Cheating is apparently common in poker. No one forced you to play. If you love the game enough, you'll play, and be cheated, then play some more. Cheaters never prosper if honest players quit.

Randy, now that you are back on the scene, what's the plan (live/online, tourneys/cash)?

The screenname was Kid55 or something very similar to that. It has been a few years so I am doing it off of memory. I honestly cant remember what Russ' screenname was.

I play everything. Hopefully it will be traveling to about 1 or 2 tournys a month, and online should be back within 6 months if we are lucky. I just have to get back the bankroll haha. But cash PLO is my bread and butter.

So, you're suggesting all honest players quit? Yeah, that'll get those scummy cheaters/scammers...

Teaches people how to get more comps, how to beat full pay video poker...how to count cards in blackjack and supposedly not get caught..etc..etc.

He is not a poker player obv....proven by the hand "ZOMG I has AA...the best hand in poker! I must raise big and announce it to the world!"

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

Saw Randy Jensen dust off a stack against Antonio Esfandiari in a big cash game at the 2004 WSOP with Q7 AIPF against Esfandiari's AA.

I always assumed Jensen was a fish who happened to lagtard his way to a couple of decent tournament finishes.

Of course, during the '30-'04 boom that's all that was needed for Superstar status.
