Player Fined For Threatening Twitter Poker Tour Official

published on 12/07/08 at 8:03 pm

Street3′s threatening comments to Twitter Poker Tour President, Graham Beasley, has resulted in a one entry fee fine for the explosive player. Known for his frequent antics and posturing at TPT events, this tirade was just the latest in a series of dodgy behavior for the Tulsa, Oklahoma Honeydipper truck driver.

The expletives and finger pointing started up after Street3 dropped out of last week’s event. His flopped trip jacks were no match for his opponent’s flopped straight and he let everyone know what he thought of that situation. Players and the TPT President attempted to calm him down, but a half liquored up Street3 was having none of it. That is when the threat occurred and security was called in to resolve the situation.

Speaking at a hastily convened 7:45pm EST news conference, Twitter Poker Tour Press Spokesperson, The_Gov, stated

Street3 is an exciting player and has a lot of potential on this tour. But in no way should an official, player, or bystander of the Twitter Poker Tour ever feel physically or emotionally threatened. His behavior is inexcusable and we have fined him the maximum amount at this time.

I will not be answering any questions from the press at this time. Thank you.

Street3 could not be reached for comment at this time.

    He is almost as bad as Phil Hellmuth these days. Almost. Too bad he’ll never be as good as Phil Hellmuth either.

    I have to agree Jim L. He is the “bad boy of poker” as well as “the bad of poker” too.

    I think the ruling was fair and balanced…not at all what I’d expect from the Twitter Poker Tour ;).

    Street3 is very much like the Incredible Hulk…and no, I don’t like him when he’s angry, but I’ll take his chips this week without any loss of sleep.

    I am hoping he plays tonight, I am very entertained by poker drama, and as tonight is my first of many stops on the TPT, I would like to get involved in a discrepancy with him, so that my name will be known in conjunction with some type of scandal. I like to ride coat tails in this manner. I, however, will not be causing any problems for any TPT officials or players.
