Robby Rose Cheating Scandal Update

Local TV Coverage of Robby Rose Cheating Scandal

Much of the feedback (i.e. backlash) that we have received after our pilot episode has inquired about the current status of the Robby Rose cheating scandal. As of now we have not heard of any arrest or charges being pressed against Mr. Rose. It has been reported that the case is being investigated–but no specifics into the investigation have been released. There is a rumor that biologists are DNA testing the fish in question to determine if it came from Lake Ray Hubbard. Many have speculated that Mr. Rose’s MO was to catch fish from a different lake and somehow weigh them in at tournament waters that have a smaller average fish size. I am disappointed that there are no reports of Rose’s property being searched for further evidence. We will keep you updated. — Bo

    PS: I also saw some internet posts indicating that Robby Rose is also a successful poker player. I don’t know enough about modern poker to know if/how one would cheat. Here is one of his profiles as a poker player: http://www.pokerpages.com/players/profiles/97789/robby-rose.htm

    It would be hard to cheat at a tournament or in a casino playing poker. They control the cards to well. He could do the little things like; look at other peoples cards who are not protecting them very well, string betting, cause a mis-deal or two. But, that would be about it. Unless, he put together some super complex Ocean’s Thirteen type conspiracy. Doubt it.
