German poker pro asked to change screen-name

If you are a casino gambler, sports-bettor, or poker player you are likely very familiar with the term “juice”, and probably HATE the term as much as I do, so you would think the screen-name employed by the high-stakes Limit Holdem pro “IHateJuice” would be roundly applauded; alas, this is not the case!

On the 2+2 Poker forum “IHateJuice” –who goes by the screen-name “hasu” on the 2+2 Poker forums–posted that he was asked by Full Tilt Poker to change his screen-name because people were misinterpreting it and complaining to the site that the name was pronounced “I Hate Jews”. Of course, IHateJuice being from Germany would only add to the problem. So, against his will “IHateJuice” has changed his screen-name to “Kagome Kagome”.

“I absolutely refused changing my SN until the last moment, but FTP forced me to do it, and I can see their point,”

Upon learning of the new moniker of “IHateJuice” one poster who recently took on “Kagome Kagome” on Full Tilt Poker asked for his money back, since he was unaware of whom he was playing because of the name-change. To his credit the now “Kagome Kagome” refunded the player 33% of his $7,200 losses –which he really didn’t have to do.

It’s quite strange to me that with the huge number of offensive and demeaning screen-names I have come across the one that would draw ire would be “IHateJuice”, which I personally find it hard to misinterpret the meaning of.
