Jeff Lisandro Makes Valid Points on Gambling Culture and Poker

3 June 2014 , By: compncards
Some of you may have heard about a "fight" over the weekend between Jeffrey Lisandro and Brandon Cantu. At the time that the incident went down, we didn't know many details but Bluff Magazine's Thomas Keeling was able to get Jeff on camera and he told his side of what happened.

While the number 13 may be unlucky for many, for some here today at the World Series of Poker, 13 will prove to be lucky indeed.   Day 13 of the 2010 WSOP is underway with four events having already hit the felt.   The $1,000 NL Holdem from the weekend is on the secondary final table.   The $1,500 Six-Handed NL is down to its final seven players, just one shy of the final.

Jeff Lisandro is a stud…. player. 3 bracelets in stud variants? What the hell? I was happy to see Jeff win his first bracelet in 2007 in 7 Card Stud and I thought it was a nice anomaly that he won his 2nd in the same event. Now, he has won the Stud 8 or Better World Championship.

Karma Favors Jeff Lisandro

Jeff Lisandro won his second WSOP bracelet on Monday. For many of you that watch poker on TV, you may remember Lisandro from the 2006 World Series of Poker. Prahlad Friedman accused Lisandro of stealing another player’s ante before a hand and eventually the argument got very heated and almost came to blows. ESPN heavily edits many poker tournaments and I had a chance to talk to Jeff in 2007 during a Stud 8 tournament at the WSOP.
