Whatever poor soul bought my old, red, egg-shaped Honda Civic must’ve loved Pizza Hut.
But that was some dozen years ago, pre-Internet for most. Now, a site called Absolute Poker is offering to pay a college scholarship worth a semester’s tuition to the winner of their online tournament.
As a staunch advocate of poker legalization, even I have some hesitation concerning the morality of this one. Let’s face it, if these kids aren’t old enough to play poker at a casino, it’s hard to justify them playing poker online for a scholarship whether or not any of their "real" money is involved. But as a publicity stunt for the folks at Absolute Poker, it has definitely served its purpose.
