Navy Admiral Tim Giardina’s Poker Scandal gets More Bizarre

After a decorated career in the US Navy, you’d think the last thing on Navy Rear Admiral Timothy Giardina’s mind would be cheating in poker.

Discovery Channel Says ‘No’ to Underground Poker Show, But It’s Not Dead Yet

Posted on by RTR Dave

While there have been a number of poker shows on TV over the years, few of them catch the attention of mainstream audiences. But then along came Underground Poker, which had the potential to do so.
