What a sociopath this scammer Michael Borovetz is.

He could wrestle Ron "The Carolina Express" Stanley.

Nice find. Jailtime, nasty. Hope he does well on the comeback trail this year.

Has poker passed him by in the last 6 years? Nah, he was always aggressive.
So, he's good...

Would like to see him do well in this year's WSOP. Would be a great comeback story.

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

Was playing 1/3 at Orleans 2 weeks ago (weekend of the 28th), a guy steps up to the table about to take a seat and loudly voices "who's the best player at this table?".

When the guy finally comes into view, it's none other than Randy Jensen. Takes a seat 2 to my left, and I instantly recognize him from my countless hours of watching televised poker back in the day.

I toss out a "well look who it is, the Dreamcrusher" to him.. we both get a laugh out of that, introduce ourselves to each other, etc.. He was in town playing a series of tourneys at Venetian that weekend for I believe the "Poker Grinders" Facebook group that a friend of his runs? Might be misquoting the name of that FB group.

We talked quite a bit over the next 1-2hrs. Randy said he's barely logged any hours playing in the last several years, but is putting serious consideration into a Vegas move soon.

He was a super nice guy, had a great table image... giving action, and being friendly all around. Look forward to bumping into him again during WSOP.

Thanks for the update. Sort of off-topic, is the Limit Omaha 8 with a kill(1/2 kill?) still going at the Orleans? I believe they have 4/8 and 8/16?

Not really my game, but I do believe those games run regularly at Orleans.

I don’t know Pai gow, but this seems like a bad idea

Yes it is, and his investors are upset that he broke the terms of their agreements so that he could degen in the pits.

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

If the dealers are so incompetent and poorly supervised that you can basically set their hands for them, and turn some losses/pushes into ties/wins, I suppose that could be a swing of a few percentage points. I’m questioning the math on the need for an extra $5K or the ease in making a quick $250K profit, though.

PaiGow poker must be pretty wicked. When it comes to addictions, your weakest link will always resurface in times of stress. Add on delusions of grandeur for the full manic meltdown mode that we will be reading concerning RandyJ soon.

In one video you have RandyJ versus Ted Forrest.....Forrest was arrested about a year ago for bad checks. The other involved BarryG who owed Full tilt 400k, and went from over ten million in net worth to essentially busto.

Where are all of the good poker stories?

Pokerstars paying Negreanu millions for no apparent reason.

I'm an admin in RG and that is a direct copy and paste of his thread he posted in there.
