A brawl involving organizers of Casino Affiliate Programs (CAP) and the Gambling Portal Webmasters Association has broken out in the London hotel where a CAP affiliate event was taking place.

Poker Affiliate Listings has reported that police were arriving at the hotel.

"The details are still sketchy but apparently the show organizers instructed security to remove GPWA staff from the hotel (not the show) by any means necessary. Apparently Steven Corfman (a member of the GPWA team) took the brunt of it and was assaulted in front of everybody by security in the lobby while being screamed at by CAP staff."

Others on the scene have stated that there were no punches thrown but a loud screaming match ensued. 

"I was unfortunately in my room when this happened. I came down to the lobby and it was a massive panic. People were yelling and the Professor (Lou Fabiono) was screaming at J Todd (GPWA) to 'step outside and fight him' in front of us all. I am not going back into the show," one attendee told PAL.

 

Previous CAP events have featured raids by law enforcement over "illegal poker tournaments" being held by organizers.

CAP organizers have been embroiled in a bitter feud with the folks from GPWA over allegations that the CAP organizers - specifically Warren Jolly and Lou Fabiono - were running a rogue online poker room and not paying their affiliates for more than two months.

GPWA's Rebecca Liggero was believed to be unharmed during the mayhem.
