Jeff Lisandro Blasts Brandon Cantu For Not Paying Debts

Lisando feels sorry for Cantu and his loss of self respect.

Gambling is not for everyone. Or so says 5-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Jeffrey Lisandro who apparently engaged former Bay 101 Shooting Star winner and World Poker Tour Champion Brandon Cantu in a hallway shouting match over some unpaid debts.

Lisandro talks with Bluff Magazine's Thomas Keeling about what actually happened in the verbal tussle that required Rio security to break up. No punches were thrown, but some unkind words were hurled as according to Lisandro, Cantu has just borrowed too much money once too often and has opted not to pay it back. Lisandro also claims that he vouched for Cantu, something gamblers don’t take too lightly, and now feels like he’s left footing the bill – if not for the cash, his reputation is taking a hit.

Lisandro says he’s just an old school gambler that believes that you should pay your debts and perhaps it’s new school guys like Cantu that are ruining the old way of how the poker world works.
