Schwartz Antics Pale Compared to the Late John Bonetti

John Bonetti
I just got done reading about the controversy last week during the final table of a $1,100 event at the Foxwoods Poker Classic. Justin "Stealthmunk" Schwartz was disqualified after various antics at the final table that included "verbal abuse" of players and a questionable "all-in" situation. You can read more about it at 2+2 forums. Reading over this blog, it reminded me of the last tournament that I played with the late, great John Bonetti.

I just read a short argument over on PokerNews. com regarding whether a shot clock would be good or bad for poker. The argument stems off of a couple of recent events. First, the $250,000 Challenge at Aussie Million incorporated a shot clock during their event and it was deemed a success.

I play very few live NL Hold'em events nowadays.
