Polk was getting his ass kicked... and after some time he suspected that something was wrong when his opponent called huge 4 bets with 83 off-suit and raised every spot in 3 bet pots when Polk didn't have a good hand.

Posted on Friday, August 19, 2011 by "T".

José "Girah" Macedo, who used to be called the Portuguese poker prodigy, can't be having the time of his life at the moment. In June he was caught cheating in a leaderboard competition in which a sponsorship was up for grabs, and about 2 week ago he was caught cheating once again. This time, however, it was worse as he had tricked people into playing against "the extremely bad player sauron1989", his own account, at the same time as he "gave advice" to the players in question on Skype while he got to see their hands.

Poker Processor Pleads Guilty in New York

Tags: conspiracy, Douglas Rennick, fraud, gambling, New York
Posted on Friday, May 14, 2010 by "K".

Douglas Rennick said in federal court yesterday, “I had business that transferred money from offshore gaming sites to American players within the Southern District of New York,” as he pleaded guilty towards a single count of dealing offshore bets.

Rennick is a Canadian who is alleged to be behind quite a few online poker payment processing companies.  He will be sentenced on September 15.  Rennick’s lawyer said that his client’s plea will mean the forfeiture of $17.1 million as well as 6 to 12 months incarceration.

This is far less from what he could have faced if he had not pled guilty and then found to be guilty of all charges he is facing in federal court.

Aside from being charged of processing offshore bets, Rennick was also indicted last August for bank fraud conspiracy, gambling conspiracy, and money laundering conspiracy.  Should he be convicted of all the charges, he would be facing up to 55 years of imprisonment.
