April Fools Obv
So Jeff Madsen finally made it to Israel for his $50k prop bet hes been talking up since April 1st....or did he?Â Everyone was convinced it was an April Fools joke but for a full two weeks he kept the joke going. The bet was for Jeff to stay in Israel for 6 weeks and not use a computer or phone, $50k was on the line andÂ no other details about the bet were released.Â I was sketchy at first but even I believed after a while. When I wanted to interview him on the prop bet all I got in response was, "ya I'm fucking going!" Pokernews reported several times on it and there was even a blog about it on Cake Poker. Jeff then posted once he 'arrived' in Israel with a pic of the place.
Nice job Jeff! You fooled a lot of people in the poker world! I especially like that some people, despite the pic and the continuous internet usage, still believed he was actually in Israel. Too bad he didn't really go, he sure looks like he could use a tan! GG
