Jason Mo Puts A Bounty on

Lee Jones’ Nuts!

Apparently high stakes poker player Jason Mo is not a big fan of Lee Jones, Head of Poker Communications at PokerStars. Mo has offered to “pony up a large amount” to someone that is willing to give Jones “a swift kick in the nuts.”

One of Mo’s Twitter followers has apparently booked the action should Jones travel Down Under (though we really hope the Aussie wasn’t serious).

Long-time PokerCast host Adam Schwartz promptly called out Mo for his indiscretion.

But even given the chance to take it back, Mo simply tried to turn Schwartz’s effort to get Mo to man up and recant his offer into an attack on Schwartz.

It seems Mo may still be angry over an earlier altercation with Jones.

Or maybe he is angry over the VIP changes implemented at PokerStars.

Either way, we hope Mo comes to his senses and finds a more civil way to deal with his issues.

“But it’s like impossible right?”

PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst prides herself on being “rational” and “risk-adverse,” but she has offered 200:1 odds on a $10,000 wager.

Want to know all the details? Well, it probably wont end up with anyone peeing at a poker table, but we aren’t giving out any spoilers, so you will have to watch her vidcast with (soon to be PokerStars Pro????) Maria Ho as they promote Vanessa’s new documentary on Pokeragraphy by Poker Central.

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Antonio Esfandiari Disqualified From PCA Main Event

After Urinating at the Table

The word out of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is that poker superstar Antonio Esfandiari was DQ’d from the PCA Main Event for peeing in a container under the table.

As a result of a prop bet with business mogul “Bill Perkins” where “The Magician” needed to lunge everywhere he went for 48 hours, Esfandiari was apparently too sore to lunge his way to the bathroom and opted instead to relieve himself at the table.

Even though he reportedly had a “towel and blockers”, the PCA staff was having none of it and kicked him out of the tournament for “breach of etiquette.”

Esfandiari was apologetic after realizing his lapse in judgement, but he apparently saw it coming.

Check out the interview he gave with PokerNews’ Sarah Herring after getting booted.
