Of course the limitation period for a crime is probably right ... a man probably punished himself a little .... of course if he is not a bad person then he had to think a lot about overstepping and his conscience was supposed to torture him .... probably

Received for my message a minus .... thought a lot ...... eventually all the same, he still needs to sit in prison and answer for his crimes ..... fortunately I did not have money in this poker room and I Not hurt, but many people lost their means .... so it probably will be correct

The first time in the last years i read something about Absolute Poker. This american poker site was verry nice and was delete suddenly after the big fake with open "whole cards". So it was verry important to have a serious license Blink

Isn't he just a wonderful man. He has decided to surrender to the law once and for all. Well done him. No doubt he has had a whale of a time living it up ove the last few years evading the law and enjoying his life wherever he has been. Nice line that I'll gotten gains will be forfeited..... maybe so, if there is anything left.

yes indeed all gotten gains that haven't yet been hidden in offshore accounts will be gracefully given back to the unsuspected public, sack full of money will literally fall from the sky and peace and tranquility will come to earth. happy days... thank you wonderful absolute poker co-founder

Scott Tom, so-called "The Shady Business Mogul," is probably one of the most notorious figures in online poker community for his primary role in the Absolute Poker cheating scandal. I hope he will live to repent of his past sins.

Well everywhere people who are dedicated to stealing or using people's money to benefit, the truth is not whether he will charge you with guilt or what was there last to think that way and admit that what he was doing was wrong ... but this is 1 of the many cases that there in the whole world and not all have the courage to admit it or surrender ...
