Doyle Brunson Thinks Anurag Dikshit Is a Dikshit

Doyle-brunson Doyle Brunson has come out swinging in his latest blog about Party Pokerco-founder and Wicked Chops fave Anurag Dikshit and his $300 million French-like-capitulation to the U.S. American government.

Says Doyle:

"One thing for sure, Anurag Dikshit is appropriately named!  Dikshit was one of the owners of Party Poker and became a multi-billionaire when Party went public.  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 plead guilty to breaking some kind of mystery law and is paying a 300 million dollar fine and a possible 2-year jail term.  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."

Within the online poker industry, most agree that what Dikshit did was extremely dikshitty, and kind of unnecessary too. Maybe Party is trying to put forth an air of (unnecessary) cooperation so if and when there is a poker carve-out from the UIGEA, they are among the first to benefit. Or maybe Dikshit has a couple of wives in the states so he needs to freely travel back here a bunch so he wanted to make sure he wasn't arrested at the gates of JFK like the also unfortunately-named Peter Dicks. Perhaps Dikshit just thought that he was helping fellow poker player Barack Obama by infusing $300 mil into The Economy.

Or maybe Anurag Dikshit is just one big dikshit. Just like Forrest Gump said in his autobiographical movie, Forrest Gump, "My momma once said that once you are a dik-shit, you are al-ways a dik-shit."

    Perhaps Dikshit thought the justice department actually had a case, considering that Party handles sports bets as well as poker.
