Ali Rafid Khudh Khudhair, 26, Iraqi, admits to playing a card game in May 2021 shot a young woman and committed an armed robbery, which went online in March this year. He was found guilty of the offenses under a ruling by British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Heather McNaughton. The charges include manslaughter, robbery and using an imitation firearm to commit robbery.

Poker Robbery

In March 2021, Khudhair was invited to a family poker game at an apartment in Burnaby, Vancouver. He wasn’t a regular player, but he was sitting at the table next to his friend. After throwing away the chips, Khudhair went outside to smoke, then returned and pulled out a gun. He then ordered the other players to put their phones on the table and lie face down on the floor.

He’s here

Khudhair stole an original Rolex watch from a customer and Punched a poker host twice in the face and then stole $1,500 from him. At this point, the Iraqi decided he wanted more and took his host to his room. He threatened to kill him if he didn’t give him the money left in the apartment. He did so and took $10,000 from the safebut was then pistol-whipped again and ordered to hand over more.

While this was happening, the host, now in the driving seat, grabbed a nearby knife and slashed Khudhair in the face while pushing him out of the bedroom. Khudhair and his friends took the opportunity to escapewith what they had.

Fatal shooting

Two months after the fatal shooting, Khudhair struck up a relationship with a sex worker and arrived at her home before pulling out a gun and trying to rob her. Unknown to the man, the woman’s boyfriend was in the guest room. Somehow, with Khudhair holding a gun, the woman managed to call 911 before being forced to hang up. The woman’s boyfriend went to investigate after hearing what he described as “strange noises.”

The boyfriend acted very bravely and pushed Khudhair out of the bedroom and forced him to follow him to retreat below. As Khudhair approached the exit,he turned and saw the man chasing him and fired a shot striking the woman.

The bullet “pierced (the woman’s soft tissue)” on the right forearm, enters the right chest cavity between the third and fourth ribs, passes through the middle and lower lobes of the right lung, and exits from the right sixth rib adjacent to the right lung in court records.

The friend then chased Khudhair, who threw the gun into bushes before being grabbed and punched before police arrived.

Emergency personnel arrived later and found the woman unconscious. Emergency surgery at the hospital could not save her life.

“Mr Khudhair planned the activities. He entered the apartment with a gun and drew it. He pointed the gun at Ms Arsenault and (her). “Mr Khudhair used The weapons were very careless and reckless. ”

Doyle Brunson: There was a memorial service in his honor.

Doyle Brunson: There was a memorial service in his...

It’s not just another Sunday at the World Series of Poker. On this day, Doyle Brunson cards will no longer be honored. That’s why hundreds of friends and family from the Godfather of Poker flocked to the Horseshoe Jubilee Theater for a “Celebration of Life” honoring the famous Texas Dolly. Brunson died in mid-May, and although the family had held a private ceremony, a memorial service for Doyle was quickly organized under the direction of his longtime manager, Brian Balsbaugh up.

Ceremony well received The hour-long ceremony was attended by poker professionals and industry titans at the WSOP in Las Vegas. The celebration continued throughout Brunson’s life, the winner of 10 World Series bracelets, a WPT champion and a star in cash games, including televised games. Brunson is the author of several books, including The Poker System, which is considered the bible.

Meanwhile, a documentary about Brunson’s life is in the works by poker pro and filmmaker Justin BoostedJ Smith. Excerpts from the documentary were also shown at the festivities at the Horseshoe Theatre.

Balsbaugh’s welcome to the celebration-goers included some of his own recollections of working with some of the biggest names in gaming. “I think he wants people to remember him as the guy who set the standard by which all future poker players will be judged,” Balsbaugh told attendees. Balsbow also gave a special thank you to Jack Binyon, one of the many celebrities in attendance.

Balsbow then passed the microphone to several prominent professionals and celebrities who shared some of their fondest memories of spending time with Brunson. Whether it’s on the table, on the golf course, or at other events. Dewey Tomko, Mori Eskandani, Gabe Kaplan, Lyle Berman, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu and Doyle’s son Todd Brunson spoke for a few minutes, interspersed with two sessions hosted by the World Poker Tour and Balsbaugh’s Poker. A short video tribute was produced by an authorized agency.

The first to greet Brunson was his longtime poker and golf friend Dewey Tomko, who recounted how Doyle and his wife Louise helped Build it to clean water wells helped Africa earn sponsorship bonuses of $1,500 each. Some fountains are named after famous poker figures, so people take water from Brunson’s fountain or Binion’s fountain or even Tomko’s fountain, although Tomko has nothing to do with it.

Next is PokerGO President Mori Eskandani, another longtime friend of Brunson’s. “We didn’t lose the legend, what we lost was the legend,” Escandani told the party. Eskandani described filming the commercial starring Brunson, in which the rest of the cast stood on a 10-foot platform in front of a nautical backdrop. The rest of the cast climbed onto the platform via ladders, but Escandani arranged for a separate chair for Brunson — who suffered a leg problem after an accident on the job — and planned to film him in front of a green screen , and edit him into the shot. Brunson didn’t want it all. He rose from his chair, threw his cane aside, and climbed up the ladder to join the others.

Next up is actor and commentator Gabe Kaplan. “We’re here to celebrate his life, his legacy, his wit, his charisma, ‘Big Daddy.’ There’s never been anyone like him. And there will never be another like him. When you know you love him. If you know him well, you know he has a not-so-lovable side. I saw this page in particular. You’re trying to score on the first tee of a golf game. I’m not saying this guy is a tough negotiator, but if he was a hostage negotiator, a lot of people would die,” he interjected humorously.

Other Speaking from a turnaround was Hellmuth, who was just hours away from winning the No. 17 WSOP bracelet. The poker kid told the crowd that Doyle was “like an oasis” for him , a comforting presence in the vast ocean of poker. Then he changed the subject, telling how Brunson Hellmuth continued to cheat in pots for decades, even at the age of 89. “I’ll miss you,” Helms said in memory of Brunson. “But I’m not sure I’ll miss you cheating on me.

Daniel Negreanu also focused on Brunson’s unrivaled stamina. “For someone like Doyle to be able to do that, year after year, and not only go on to play the biggest games, but to win them, I think we can all admire and aspire .You know, when you think about the Poker Hall of Fame, I think one of the key aspects that Doyle has been emphasizing that von Dewey mentioned is standing the test of time. He’s the barometer.”

Last on stage One guest speaker was his son Todd, who had a more serious story told from the early days of online poker, many years before Doyle’s room. Doyle owns a substantial 40% stake in one of the first online poker rooms, Highlands Club Poker, Todd said. The room was using Planet Poker software, which turned out to be non-random, and Highlands players, including Doyle’s close friend Chip Reese, may have been duped.

There have also been internal setbacks, as Todd Brunson said at the conference, including mixing operating funds with player deposits. Highland Poker soon went bankrupt, owing hundreds of thousands of dollars to its player base. Even though Doyle only owns 4% of the company, he steps up to make sure the site’s players stay healthy.

After the speakers, Brian Balsbaugh, the host of the ceremony, returned to the podium to thank all those who attended the ceremony. Balsbaugh detailed the gift that was given to each ceremony attendee: a special set of 52 cards titled “Doyle Brunson: A Celebration of Life” with event details.

Doyle Brunson’s Last Hand

Each card in the unique deck has what Balbaugh described One of 52 different “Doyle Doctrines,” this deck contains 26 tens and 26 twos, commemorating Doyle Brunson’s favorite “10-2” hand, which won him two bracelets.

Balsbaugh also suggested celebrating the annual “Doyle Day” throughout the poker community. “I want to call October 2 (10/2) Doyle Day,” Balsbow offered. He asked for a second statement on his impromptu motion, received several statements, and then took an informal vote. “We should commemorate his life on October 2nd every year.”

So be it…

Sean Dib pays tribute to late friend's mother with...

American Shaun Deeb is one of the best players in the world at the World Series of Poker (WSOP). The owner of six bracelets, he won his sixth gem this year when he cracked the 27th event and joined a select team of six-time World Series champions.

As the owner of a solid and enduring career, it’s not just the amount of money and success that Dib has achieved in his lifetime. He has also made countless friends over the years, which I believe have helped him a lot in his growth in the game.

In early April, Shaun Deeb received the sad news of the passing of his good friend Thayer. Rasmussen, “THAY3R” on PokerStars. He has $1,670,657 in live prize money and a host of impressive online results. He passed away at the age of 39 and will be dearly missed.

On Tuesday, Thayer’s family decided to throw a party in his honor, which was attended by a number of friends, including Dib. He took the opportunity to honor his friend in a very meaningful way by gifting his sixth bracelet to THAY3R’s mother.

“Sorry I had to leave sooner than I wanted, but so what if I had a good time.” There are a lot of lucky people who have known Thayer this long and when I received the #6 bracelet , I knew who it was going to,” Deeb said in a Twitter thread.

The post has garnered more than 100,000 views and many comments congratulating Deeb on his hire. Thayer’s brother, Frank Ba Frank Barrett was also touched by his friend’s attitude: “Some of you may know that my brother passed away recently. We had a party for him tonight and it was better than I could have hoped for. Here he is presenting my mother with the WSOP bracelet he won this summer in honor of my brother. thank you all. “
