I think it is out of order that this guy hasn't paid this money back. Matthew Kirk lent him the money in good faith and, in my opinion, you should always honour your debts and pay up

This guy don´t have a good character, when he don´t pay his losing money. And this player called himself a poker pro, not really in my opinion. But i think that in the future nobody gives him a penny, but perhaps he have a rolex Big Smile

if people know who this guy is then you would know hes creating a poker mecca at kings casino. he also has lots of money and so for this guy to put a law suit in only seems to be because he wants to get back more than he loaned.

well kinda fishy story really, and to be honest a main evidence of sms conversation is a bit lame, you can write many things in an sms conversation and yet do nothing in reality. so unless there is more evidence dude can get away with not paying back the money he supposedly lost.

Of course it's very sad to give money to a person who inspires confidence and eventually turns out to be a fraudster .. although it seems to me that if the swindler won then he would return the money but as luck was not with him then he decided to deceive

They loan money like they are giving away a pack of cigarettes.
First 500k then another one and so on.
ok you have money to spare, but why you are giving it away like this?
Now sue and wait for it to get it back Smile

Chesnoff & Schonfeld PC is one of the most prominent law firms in Las Vegas. The firm has represented so many celebrities (Leonardo DiCaprio, Paris Hilton, Phil Ivey, Lindsay Lohan, Bruno Mars, Vince Neil, Britney Spears, Mike Tyson, Scott Weiland, and the list goes on).

I think this is what happens when people have too much money, they start to spend it very quick and then cannot stop and like in this situation even take loans and taking loan for gambling us super bad, maybe he was using some alcohol so it didn't help to think right

I wonder how solid his case will be with only proof of it his word, and some text messages.
Actually thats not a proof at all.
In some cases if there is not a receipt, or a signed contract, you are burnt.
At least this is how it goes here.

Yes I too think that if we think about proving this loan there is need of much more better data then aa few sms messages, they can be about anything and no one can even prove who was writing those sms messages so i think it will be hard to prove this situation in court

When in the case there are such big money a few sms messages of course a very unreliable argument in court .... I also think that a good lawyer will be able to justify the borrower .... if he did take money .... although on the other hand there will also be good lawyers

It all comes to the judge at the end, or wherever there is to the jury.

No matter what the outcome will be from this trial, probably he learned his lesson
and will never give money to anyone else like that.
