The Story: As the names implies, a guy
gets branded with a hot poker in this video clip. He lost a huge bet
Kings were cracked by Jacks in a No-Limit Hold’em cash game. The
video picks up shortly afterwards. (The owners of this website are not
depicted in the video - but we did find it pretty damn funny.)
The Legend: The guy on the
receiving end is known as The Legend. He earned his nickname
up in Oregon from both his ability to kill high-stakes cash games and his
propensity to make wild wagers on anything from dominos to cat fights.
The Aftermath: The intended “X”
turned out a bit more like a sideways “W,” and it will probably be there for the
rest of his life.
The Veracity: This video is 100%
real. Nothing was faked in any way, shape, or form. If you still have doubts,
freeze the video just before attempt #2, when the camera zooms in on Legend’s
foot. You can clearly see the burn mark from attempt #1. However, if you
still have doubts, drop us an email, we’ll be happy to pass on any questions you
have to the responsible parties.
