New Celebrity Poker Cheat Born!
Well, I have no proof yet that he cheats poker, but poker's newest celebrity arrival, Jose Canseco, has already admitted to being a cheat and written a book about it. The ex-baseball slugger has admitted to taking steroids to cheat in baseball. Now he seems to be taking poker quite seriously, as other ex-professional athletes have done. Canseco played in the 2009 WSOP and in cash games as well. He also played in the last Dream Team Poker Tournament a few weeks ago. No one caught him cheating there, but personally, I wouldn't trust Jose Canseco in a poker game as far as I could throw him!
And if he's playing online poker as well, do you think he might be using some of those mental cognizance enhancer drugs like Provigil and Nuvigil that lots of online players use to get an unfair advantage over the competition, in effect cheating online poker? Well, if he cheated to build up his body, why wouldn´t he cheat to build up his mind?
I won't be sitting in a poker game with Canseco anytime soon!
