Prahlad Friedman is no Longer Karma's Bitch
It looks like karma has finally decided to get off Prahlad Friedman's back. After going 0 for everything since the 2006 WSOP Main Event, Friedman made his first cash in over 2 1/2 years at the 2009 WSOP Main Event. He has now won the Legends of Poker Main Event for $1 Million.
Don't get me wrong, Friedman is a great player, but I never have had any respect for him since what he pulled with Jeff Lisandro. However, things change and Thang Luu is karma's new bitch in my opinion. Karma looked at "accusation of ante stealing" vs "breaking a dealer's hand" and went with the obvious choice.
However, at the same time, maybe it's time to let the whole matter of the ante stealing accusation go. I mean, look at the sports world. Michael Vick butchered dogs and had illegal dog fights and the man is going to make Millions in the NFL. What he did is much more serious.
In the end, certain things just don't seem as important to harp on anymore. I think that is where I am with Karma and Prahlad Friedman. He's served his time for spouting off at the mouth and now its time for him to come out and kick ass at the poker table.
With that being said, I would also like to congratulate Kevin Schaffel for his 2nd place finish. This is a nice feather in his cap in addition to the Main Event. It is hard to believe that the guy couldn't even keep his own place a couple of months ago. Hopefully he uses his money wisely and doesn't end up like many players that have won Millions and wind up broke within a year or less.
