Mob Mentality as Poker Community Wants Blood

A 60 Minutes segment on an "insider poker cheating scandal" ended with one of the folks who uncovered the scam suggesting that the same thing may be happening at other online poker rooms.

That didn't sit too well with the rest of the online poker community, many of whom are extremely loyal to Full Tilt Poker and Poker Stars among others.

"Yeah it wasn't great for online poker but it could've been way, way worse. The final piece was far from the outright "hatchet job" we were told it would be," expressed the folks from WickedChopsPoker.com.

But one man has stood in the line of fire since the segment aired.  That would be Todd "Dan Druff" Witteles, the same man who made the remark about potential cheating scandals about to occur elsewhere.

WickedChops has observed the amount of heat Witteles is taking for his closing comments:

"The people who did this were very greedy and very blatant. But the scary thing is there may be other accounts out there like this, maybe even on other sites that are not being done with the same sort of recklessness. And maybe this has been going on on more than Absolute Poker and UltimateBet, maybe it's going on in several other places, and maybe it's still going on on these sites."

He's getting slammed more than Gambling911.com and WickedChopsPoker.com combined over at TwoPlusTwo.com.

"The funny thing about this is Druff was one of the guy's who helped unearth the Absolute mess, doing the poker community a big service," point out the folks at WCP.  "Dude is getting no slip-up equity for that. And in the 2+2 podcast, it was also revealed that Druff even clarified his ‘controversial' statement that he did feel safe on other sites, but 60 Minutes didn't air it."

What a surprise, huh?

"Anyway, more high school drama is sure to ensue," WCP added.
