HAS POKER 888 BITTEN OF MORE THAN IT IS PREPARED TO CHEW WITH SUAREZ?
Online poker operator 888poker is reportedly considering the future of its brand ambassador, Liverpool football star Luis Suarez, only a month after signing him up.
The reason is sprawled across most mainstream media this week - the discipline-challenged soccer star faces allegations that whilst playing for Uruguay against Italy in the World Cup he bit opponent Giorgio Chiellini.
Suarez has been the subject of public betting following previous incidents on the field which include chomping down on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic when playing for Liverpool in a Premier League match last year.
These infringements have unfortunately marred a brilliant playing career, which recently included scoring two goals against England at the World Cup, and the controversial player now faces a FIFA investigation and possible bans.
888poker has confirmed that it is considering its options regarding Suarez, saying in a statement:
"Following the allegations made against Luis Suarez in regards to his behaviour during Uruguay's World Cup match against Italy, 888poker is seriously reviewing its relationship with the player as we will not tolerate any unsporting behaviour."
In related news, one Norwegian football fan won GBP 1,700 on a 175 to 1 bet that Suarez would commit a third biting offence at some point in the World Cup.
24-year-old Richard Helmersen said his winnings would help finance trips to the UK to watch other matches this season.
UK football legend Paul Scholes took a more serious view, commenting on his Paddy Power blog that Suarez was an embarrassment despite his considerable talents as a player.
He will feel terrible tonight, and the entire incident is such a shame because hes a tremendous player. But people will remember Suarez now for his biting antics at this World Cup rather than his supreme footballing ability."
SVENSKA SPEL BRAND AND SPONSORSHIP MANAGER RESIGNS
Johan Lindvall (42), to many the face of State gambling company Svenska Spel, has resigned his brand and sponsorship managerial position and will leave the company in March 2014 after 11 years of service.
In his current position, Lindvall is responsible for Sweden's largest sponsorship budget of a quarter of a billion Kronor.
Lindvall said while he is still not sure what the future holds, he "wants to have control of his own destiny" and is grateful to Svenska Spel for the past 11 years. "I think it feels good and I'm very happy right now that I dare to take this decision. It will be exciting."
Swedish Press speculate that Marie Avander (51) will succeed Lindvall. Avander has been with Svenska Spel since 2006 and currently holds the position Manager Business Area Vegas.
ISLE OF MAN GEARING UP FOR MAJOR ONLINE POKER TOURNAMENT
The Isle of Man, home to many online gambling operators and software companies, is gearing up for an influx of an anticipated 600 poker players in October this year.
The cause of the excitement is the fourth and penultimate round of the Pokerstars UK and Ireland Poker Tournament, which will be held on the island between October 31 and November 4.
The Pokerstars headquarters are based on the island, which is situated between Ireland and England in the Irish Sea.
Players will battle it out over four days in the Villa Marina entertainment complex in a competition which has guaranteed prize money totalling half a million pounds.
This year's UKIPT tour started in June in Marbella, moving to Galway, Ireland in August, hence to London and then to the Isle of Man. The grand final will take place in Nottingham, UK at the end of November.
