Poker pro Justin ‘BoostedJ’ Smith recently tweeted a picture of himself with President Bill Clinton along with a cheeky comment aimed at the President’s history of extramarital relations. Or maybe it was an innocent comment merely meant to suggest Clinton is fearless. Either way, it’s a great (and rare) photo collaboration of a poker pro and a President.
It is unclear exactly what poker tournament Smith is referencing. Smith’s previous tweet was from three days prior and makes no mention of any Presidential poker games. A Google news search from the past week of “Bill Clinton poker” also yields rather little. Clinton was, however, recently in Las Vegas for a fund-raiser.
One would imagine this was when Smith was schmoozing with the President.
Update: Smith was kind enough to oblige our inquiry regarding where he encountered President Clinton.
There remains scant information on Google about Bill Clinton’s presence at a poker tournament. However, a Las Vegas Review Journal article from earlier last week quoted U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo as being excited to meet President Clinton at a charity poker tournament in Hollywood this weekend.
It seems that the charity behind the poker tournament preferred to keep a low profile regarding their special guest.
