that's why I do not play poker in real life. You can easily sit at the same table with a fraud and not notice it .. and think that just unlucky ... well that he was caught badly that he probably will continue to play and to deceive other people .. this time in Russia ...

It's interesting how all the players will remember the figure to cheat the casino, and it is interesting how many of them do so and that is never revealed. While on the one hand and the casino cheating and too much so that when they cheated no great loss.
Four months will pass and he will continue to play again..

familiar story. sounds like that sketchy guy Phil Ivey,
Phil probably cheated in different ways, one for example: pays one or more dudes to win chips from him/them to get an advantage in a poker tournament. or whatever scheme he used, I saw from the start that this guy has no honor.

When he gets tired of cheating at poker, he can become a professional impersonator.

I would be a gangster myself if i had his mug. Who can blame him?
Life itself is a ponzi. All rules are made up. Nothing matters. Marks get conned.
Live with it. Be more aware and you decrease your odds of getting scammed.
In the end who cares. Better luck next time russian guy.

It's not like you could spot the online cheaters on any given moment either...
