Yes this is a sad story of situation when people dont know how to stop and their life is full of pronlems then. It is easy to lose a lot of money in gambling when you cannot control your emotions. People need to know how to stop when they play from money they can't lose.

I will shed strong crocodile tears for this useless con man who choose to be a homeless gambling addict with a chem engineer degree under his belt. Some people just never recognize when they have it all.

If we were in the wild west this Michael Borovetz would have been a star of the poker game who begs money to play or something like that. I'm honestly bored with all this news about all sorts of people who steal, cheating or other illegal methods to make money. This pro is worth being put in prison for 3 or 6 months. Honest work is not good for him.

They are doing their due diligence. Addiction and gambling plus addiction 2 gambling could lead to serious issues besides getting TILT so it is not that bad that we see both sides of the coin.

Why would someone give money to some other person, to pay for their
hotel stay?
How naive "at least" you have to be to give money like that.
It yells scam from far away.

Another "poker pro" on his downfall.

so it's not worth more like I always say and a much more strange thing because it always has a gift and does not know how to use and they give themselves to gabler to the casino game where there is no advantage and they get poor and then they leave in despair and they do these shits

There is a reason why it is called a scam and not a theft.
That doesnt mean it is legal.
What he did is not legal and can lead him straight to the jail.
There are laws for this, like it should, to protect the people, from persons like the one
mentioned here.

Michael Borovetz had only one step to begging like a romanians... gypsies. In many countries, beggars is forbidden by law and here is a scam for fooling people. It's incredible for a pro player. He could play online with weak players to earn a few hundred dollars or few k but his option it was incorrect.

That is what one always asks. How can one trust a stranger and give money so easily? The reality is that people believe everything, and that's why this type of scammers will always keep appearing.
It is a sad story about how addiction has consumed him, but that is not why he is free from the laws. To fulfill his punishment properly, and realize that he has an illness, and must treat it.

probably this man appealed to the human ability to do good ... maybe in Europe so it's not accepted but in russia many people help those who ask for money ... especially those who with all their appearance shows that he needs help ... for example they sometimes approach me people and ask for money for alcohol ... and I sometimes give them money

Theft by deception? Is that regarded as a misdemeanor or a felony under New Jersey law?

scambook

There seem to be numerous complaints about his behavior.

these people which proceeds in this way are called just deceivers. I could not do that except for one thing: I have problems and i ask for someone's help. This case is different and this man is a shame. He has to look for a job to make money. He must not deceive other people.
