So Ryan’s in the tournament, he’s backed, he busts.
In the meantime though, while he was grinding on the East Coast, he found himself wrapped up in the Twittering of those playing in the West, specifically at the World Series of Poker where poker pro Griffin Benger was seated at the table with Eriquezzo’s ex-girlfriend – Amanda Musumeci.
As soon as he sees her name, he’s gotta take a jab.
Ryan then, looking to re-enter the SHR tournament, reaches out to potential investors or for a loan.
No one replies…except for Benger who gives Ryan the needle.
Then the following conversation ensues:
(Benger’s actual girlfriend, former PokerNews on camera hostess Jennifer Robles)
The two fake troll each other, sparing back and forth half-joking (impossible to tell for sure) about who is kidding, who is trolling and who is taking it too far. When someone, from left field, asks the following question:
You’ll notice that he @ mentions Musumeci which brings her into the conversation.
To which Luke “bdbeatslayer” Vrabel, who had also been following the sparing, thought this was the correct thing to say.
All of this is the lead up to the real drama. Now here were are Eriquezzo, busted from the tournament with nothing to do, in a Twitter conversation with Benger and Musumeci who are in Vegas.
Amanda, taking it in stride (keeping Ryan off the reply) throws this in…
and that sets Ryan off…
He starts trolling:
Amanda, smartly, deleted some of her side of the conversation…but you can glean what was said from Ryan’s rage-filled replies.
Asher must know that people are actually reading this…
It’s hard to say for sure, but this looks like a reference to the time Ryan allegedly punched Amanda in the mouth during a fight. As if she did something wrong by exposing that…
So while that was going on this conversation was in fight-mode too. Remember earlier when Luke and Ryan were kidding around with each other…well, that’s over now.
Yep…that’s bad word in there…
Oh yea…here’s another war waged by Ryan against Dan O’ Brien.
Eventually, Amanda stop responding to Ryan but ends up busting her tournament.
Benger comes to her defense (finally)…
Then he aires some more dirty laundry:
It looks like Ryan Eriquezzo is quickly becoming the new Adizzy.
