    I've never liked her. She's just an opportunistic little punk.

    I have probably missed something here, but if full tilt agreed to give her and all other "Team full tilt" members 1% owernship of the business, and paid everybody else I think Clonie is entitled to what is rightfully hers?

    I don't see a problem with her just trying to pick up her rightful paycheck.

    Although like I said, I only scanned the story and have no background knowledge, so fill me in what I'm missing so I can join in the "Clonie Bashing" :evil: .

    well, if they promised her 1% it was pretty stupid.
    For a flat fee, I would have worn the T-shirts for allot less $$ :cigar:

    There's some great commentary on this from Daniel Negraneau. He basically says that she has lost her mind and was NEVER promised 1% of FT.

    There's also a lot of speculation regarding a drug problem. Whether or not that's true, she seems to have burnt all her bridges in the poker world.

    Crypt Keeper???? ROFLOL, what do you look like after an allnighter at the MA/NH poker parties?

    Trust me on this one, when you get to 55, you'll be surprised how good Clonie looks even when she has a bad hair day.:stunned:

    For a pretty much pampered life she looks pretty ragged there.
    That's not all day poker party game fatigue. That's serious burn out.
    37? more like 47, +a hard life and too many chemicals.
    Damn shame.
    I wonder why HL offered her 250k?
    I'm sure there os allot more behind the story.

    Yeah, I've seen a few friends look wrecked like that, heck I've been that wrecked myself, but never without drugs:roll: I really hope she gets her money, or she might kill someone for it:shocked:

    Well, I'm not a Clownie fan, though from the article, if her depiction of events is true, she should sue.

    I take exception to the use of this word, which is an insult to all women. Though I'm sure that's not your intent, I'd appreciate if you find another term. Thanks.

    Wow, I was shocked to read she was 37. I would have guessed at least 45.

    I expect more from you guys. You take one bad photo and judge on that......tsk tsk tsk. She was having a rough day - ever had one of those? That pic could have been after a 14 hour session playing cards with a bunch of smelly, dirty creeps. And it looks like it caught her in the middle of a facial expression....

    But you guys are right....she's ugly and the crypt keeper...

    Hey if you like crack w***s, that's your thing :wink:

    I'm wondering if that's the word that was objected to above...hmmmm.



    ***I don't know if Clonie is a crack w****, the above is intended to be a joke***




    If it walks and talks like a duck....
