    By all accounts he was not roughed up because of his 2nd place finish in One Drop. He was roughed up because his girl friend started bad mouthing some guy's in the club who then beat him up.

    Nothing worse than being in a tough bar with a girl who want's to get YOU in a fight over her.

    This^

    The thread title is a bit misleading. One had nothing to do with the other.

    I think the thread title was fair. Nothing in the article to suggest they aren't linked.

    No doubt its not the whole story, but the thread title was true to the link.

    Pretty much just following along with a few newspaper stories. He did win 2nd place at WSOP. And did get beat up leaving. Not sure if the beating was related to the actual tournament and/or the people there or whata.

    True, it appears that it was not because he won. Or these guys were after money.

    He was leaving a club when it happened - he was not leaving the Rio or WSOP when this occurred. Whatever - hopefully he is ok.

    To be honest it doesnt lok like he was beat up by 6 guys.

    I have done worse damage to myself while drunk. falling down, scrapping walls, that sort of stuff.

    What gets me is that they are cmpletely innocent, did nothing wrong, guys just jumped them for nothing. find that hard to believe.
