Jenny Woo here, your workhorse Senior International Correspondent reporting to you from the island of Costa Rica this week. 

I must admit, some of us – including Yours Truly – was a little stunned to learn that Full Tilt Poker PR rep Michele Clayborne had allegedly assumed the identify or a male manager of the company, posting on various poker message boards as FTP Doug. 

Outside of Brooke Burke, whose ass I nearly kicked in a few years back at the Sportsbook.com Super Bowl party, I have never had the pleasure of dealing with such a nasty bitch.  Karma is a bigger bitch however and now this woman is seemingly left to fend for herself amidst outcries from US players demanding their funds from the beleaguered poker room. 

Ms. (Mr?) Clayborne reportedly made an appearance the first day of the World Series of Poker then has laid low every since.  Maybe she is hearing those rumors that the US Attorney’s Office out of the Southern District of New York could come after the Full Tilt pros, the very people she manages (consults, excuse me).  We at Gambling911.com wouldn’t know as, just like Michele, the US Attorney won’t talk to us. 

Claybourne sure was reassuring as FTPDoug, letting us know our money was safe and would be returned shortly.  Now it seems FTPDoug has disappeared along with everyone’s money.

Can someone please tell me what public relations person hides behind the identity of a former employee of the opposite sex?

Maybe it’s because Michele Clayborne has balls….or thinks she has balls.  Really, she probably needs to grow a pair. 

Shame on you!  Try manning up for real and make sure these players get paid!

Consultant, my half Korean, half Redneck ass!
