A Fish-Themed Quick-Fire Monday

Fish might not be the first thing you think of on a Monday morning, dear Melted Felt readers, in fact it may not even be the 3rd thing. For a change even more tangy than a pickled herring, we bring you a completely fish-themed update of poker news, in today’s Quick-fire Monday

For many years the poker waters of the British Isles were considered dangerous, lurking beneath the shimmering surface was none other than the Devilfish – a poker creature even more frightening than the bubbles and red-paint-in-water effects of 80’s piranha films. It all came as a bit of a shock to find out that the poker site of the same name turned out to be a minnow… you know, a little too big for bait, and not quite big enough to bother to keep. A purchaser ummed, ahhhed and eventually bought the site for a few bucks – a case of the one that got away?

Adding to the fishy misery, haddock-munching residents of Washington State are reeling from another lead-weighted disaster, as the wide net of the law forces Full Tilt Poker to stop accepting bait from WA players. Scholes of break-even rakeback grinders are now facing a dilemma worthy of Nietszche – to take the shame and play on Cereus, or queue for jobs at the local cannery??

Well, I was hoping for a 3rd fish-themed poker news item this morning, and with the exception of a few g-list celebs signing for H-list poker sites it all seems too early in the week for the news to have broken… hang on in there dear Melted Felt readers, I have a feeling in my water that this will be a busy few days!
