Liquored Up Player Banned From Twitter Poker Tour

Recently re-elected Twitter Poker Tour Chairman, Geoff Manning, stated that Steve “Alfman” Carse (known as street3 on twitter) would serve a lifetime ban from the prestigious poker tour. The latest ordeal centered around Mr. Carse showing up to the Tulsa HoneyDipper’s Association Poker Tour (sponsored by the Twitter Poker Tour) well inebriated, unable to sit down at the table, and trying to look at others player’s hole cards.

In a much publicized twitter posting, Mr. Manning’s decision was direct, swift, and immediate.

That is the first order of business. Happy 2 year anniversary Carse, Happy Birthday Too, You’re Fired!
- Geoff Manning, October 20th, 2010

With the tour looking to clean up their image and become visibly professional, Mr. Carse’s antics, asinine comments, and general bullshit, on and off the poker tables were too much. The suspension comes off a one year probationary period that Mr. Carse served for threatening a Twitter Poker Tour official (see Player Fined For Threatening Twitter Poker Tour Official) in December 2008 as well as unruly behavior (see Graham Beasley Frustrated with Twitter Poker Tours Bad Boy) that same month.

Mr. Carse, a well known University of Oklahoma alumnus and booster, was not available for comment concerning his suspension.

Card carrying tour members were generally enthused with Mr. Manning’s decision and have supported his decision on the Twitter Poker Tour forum and through the tour’s twitter account.

    Clearly this Twitter Poker Tour Continues to make superior business decisions. Perhaps they will have more money than me making decisions this profound.

    Perhaps not.

    As the leader of the United States of America, I commend this great American instiution in taking strong, firm, and decisive action against such a clearly degenerate human being.

    I think that American’s deserve better, and that the firing creates new jobs, and helps to solve the economic woes that so many Americans are feeling. So re-elect me.

    It’s great to see the Twitter Poker Tour board taking a no-nonsense strong stance against instances such as this. Well done!
