Doyle Brunson Strikes Out at Anurag Dikshit

In a recent blog posted by Doyle Brunson, he minced no words on how he feels about the Party Gaming co-founder Anurag Dikshit, who has struck a deal with the United States government agreeing to pay $300 million and admitting breaking the law in the process.  Doyle rarely voices his opinion so openly but did just that on his most recent blog.  He is a 10 time World Series of Poker bracelet holder and an ambassador of poker. Doyle Brunson, Poker Player
In his blog, he claimed, “Anurag Dikshit is appropriately named!”  Doyle went on to say, “It looks like he would feel a sense of obligation to online poker, the industry that made him a rich man. Instead, he folded up like an accordion and pled guilty to breaking some kind of mystery law and is paying a 300 million dollar fine and possible 2-year jail term.”  Brunson also makes note of the fact that Dikshit made billions of dollars from internet gambling.
On December 16, Dikshit appeared in the Southern District Court of New York where he confessed to violating the Wire Act of 1961.  In the past, the Wire Act typically has applied to online sports betting though this case mentioned online poker specifically.  He is scheduled to be sentenced two years following the date of his U.S. court appearance on December 15, 2010.  While waiting for that date, his travel has been restricted to the European Union, New York City, India and Gibraltar. 
Brunson wound up his opinion giving an overview of how rival online rooms were taking the news, “It certainly created some ill will from the other online poker sites. I personally can’t imagine what was going through his mind when he made his decision.”  The Microgaming Network which includes Doyle’s Room announced in November that it would no longer be accepting new U.S. customers.
