The firm, Publicity Guaranteed, charges for each article it successfully pitches and after Absolute failed to pay in full, it took the online poker site to court. It also recently sent out a statement to about 100 newspapers, detailing Absolute’s failure to pay.

Commenting on the public shaming, Nat Kurok of Publicity Guaranteed said, “We’re just saying we’re someone else that got shortchanged by Absolute Poker, and this should be public knowledge.”

According to the article, an Absolute Poker executive named Paul Leggett promised he would call back with a comment but did not.
