Really... They drug test card players!

I'm sure it's a safety issue, he may 'club' someone, then use a 'spade' to get rid of the body. I'm sure it takes 'heart' to attempt this deception and the payout for winners could be many many 'diamonds.'

I believe that only applies to sport where drugs could effect physical performance though, like steroids, growth hormones, that gives them an unfair physical advantage on the guy who does not use them. Drug use by card players would not benefit or negatively effect anyone, in other words, there is no benefit or gain.

I read that the substances taken were commonly used to treat low Testosterone. Which is kind of sad that someone can be punished for a non-performance enhancing drug.

I can see drugs like Ritalin or Adderall being banned, but why ban drugs that may be used legitimately to treat unrelated issues? It's like banning a sprinter for taking acne medicine.

If it is for a medical issue, then he would have had a doctor's permission and prescription, and that is acceptable under the rules.

However, I have never heard of Clomifene being part of treatment for low testosterone, but it is used to counter the effects of steroids, and is a widely known substance for those who dope.
