WPT Bucharest: A Romanian politician expelled

The World Poker Tour made a stop at the Regent Casino Bucharest since March 27 until April 02, 161 poker players made the trip to participate in the largest poker tournament in Romania. The Day 1 was marred by an incident, the controversial Romanian politician and businessman George Becali has been expelled from the World Poker Tour Bucharest. George Becali is no stranger to controversy and continues to make headlines because of his extreme views and his fiery temperament. This Member of Parliament and owner of FC Steaua Bucharest earned his nickname "Ioan Botezatorul" or John the Baptist after spitting wine on a satirical television program that he did not appreciate.

George, Gigi Becali or Giovanni, became a millionaire after a sale of soil with the Romanian army. After he was suspected of embezzlement by the Romanian press with which he continues to utter publicly insanity. The millionaire whose promise on 2004 campaign was "to make Romania a country that shines like the sun in the sky" seems to have forgotten it, but we preferred to speak of him because of his mood swings. What Giovanni Becali did to deserve expulsion in an international gathering of poker? In rage, he threw his chips into the air. Apparently, he did not like the fact that a player spends too much time with the masseuse, the only girl of the tournament.
