Attacks Continue in Australia - 26th August 2009
Unfortunately more serious casino
news out of Australia.
Limited and wires report the latest in a string
of attacks and bashings in and around Australia's
land based casinos and gambling dens.
AFL star Jonathan Hay was attacked and kicked
in the face in an apparently random attack at
was celebrating his 30th birthday with friends
when a gang of seven thugs forced him to the ground
just after 2am Sunday.
former All-Australian fullback suffered bruising
and a cut to the head in the latest episode of
mindless CBD violence.
would appear on the surface that online casinos,
online casino portals and the like, are gaining
another advantage from their land based cousins
by default. Of course online casino don't have
actual muggers, however one still needs to watch
out for online casino stings and low acts, like
they type that were documented on the United States

PartyPoker, Noble Poker, and Euro Partners Titan
Poker, and a few other brands, are offering satellites
to the Poker Cup at Crown Casino later this year
beginning in September. Let's just hope the live
events are incident free. Insiders are looking
to confirm if Mike Sexton, Chris Moneymaker, Daniel
"Kid Poker" Negreanu, Annie Duke, Phil
Hellmuth, and Tony G are likely to attend. Those

et al on location. Folks are extremely interested
to see if poker Doyle Brunson will turn up, as
Mr Brunson has been in a war of words with some

Crown (and Star City). It's got all the makings
of a real life battle royal, and a serious mix
of personalities. You can bet that Crown's James
Packer will have security at an all time high,
comparative to when Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
stayed at Crown a few months ago.
in Crown's best interest to beef up security to
protect its customers, visitors and reputation.
