Promised to get interesting, if it isn't settled out of court. Class Action Lawsuit can involve a lot of money, and that would hurt even a big company. But of cause it could seriously backfire, if Stars would be able to prove he played from inside the US.

I read a few years ago about some players who sued the old owner of Pokerstars and his son. Players have received the money and something extra. In court they understood not to make those details public. Probably Amaya Group was sued in court by other players where he lost. This poker room produces a lot of money. Should allow players to win and not get into all sorts of scandals to further ruin their reputation.

What a lawyer would say.
Even if the know you dont stand a chance, they are going to say,
that it can be done, to take your money.
Win or lose they are getting paid after all
But still, if he played from inside USA, he is not going to get anything.

Amaya Group does not know how to withdraw money from the players .... and what this person says seems to me the absolute truth ... with great gains Amaya Group is trying to find a reason not to pay the winnings and this of course for their image a big drop .. .. but I have not played there for a long time, so I do not care

I always wonder if this could happen and I always see it happening a player always loses and loses and it does not matter where he is or if his account is with some more restriction and only he ganahr a high amount and here comes these stories that the account is not legible will be this truth or just another form of coup given by the great idea to not pay the player

Gordon Vayo is claiming that he played this particular SCOOP tournament when he was in Canada, but he didn't state that he had never attempted to log into his PokerStars account and played real money games when he was physically situated inside the United States.
Exactly when did he change the registered country of his account?

Maybe they are just salty because he did not agree to become PS team member pro, so this was the only way to get him on board. Showing some tough love will makes wonderz sometimes. Who knows at this point, I could beleive all sorts of conspirwcy theories involving PS.

I hope the court will give him the reason and can take some money from this group. They should pay not to get into bigger problems (although in reality they should be crumbs for PS).
The problem happens once you win, but why do not they do something to prevent you from playing from the USA? That is to say, as long as one loses, they have no problem in playing from the USA, but if they win, they do their best not to pay.

WE will get more news on this for sure in the near future.
I want to see what evidence both sides will provide in court.
Some times though it takes too long for the trial to begin, after the lawsuit has been
filed.

now that's quite a shitty situation from players point of view and quite the contrary if we are somehow connected with the fcukin Amaya group and what it has left out of once a very decent poker room. makes you wonder is it worth putting in bigger money into this site, there might be a reason that you will not be able to withdraw it back, like because you made a deposit on Wednesday...

I do not understand why this amaya group is just trying to make enemies. I have the impression they believe that they will solve something in this way. If they have more complaints, they will have to lose. This process must end quickly with the player victory. Amaya group make that money in one day probably.

I think they bill that in less than a day, they're crumbs for them.
Surely end in some kind of extrajudicial agreement, should pay perhaps more than the prize due, for the damages caused. Although the decision taken in this regard can be a good precedent for others who are in a similar situation. I will always be in favor of the players. If he was able to play the tournament, and he won, then they will pay him.

it seems to me that this is just a terrible strategy of behavior from PokerStars .... they have completely spoiled their reputation for this behavior .... now very many players will think that PokerStars uses all the most ridiculous opportunities not to pay prizes .... and if from them will leave many players, then they are to blame for this themselves

It will depend a lot on what the justice decides, or if it is resolved beforehand (in this case it would be an extrajudicial agreement benefiting the plaintiff). Now if a judge solves it, it will be a precedent, both for or against PS.
It is true that the big players are emigrating to other poker rooms, but at the time of the big tournaments, PS is still the best in them, if I'm not mistaken. At least with the most attractive prizes

There are more cases where players have won the process with pokerstars and amaya fcukin group, and this player can win. Here is a lot of money and you can not play with the nerves of a man in this way. Pokerstars could only send a warning and the player knew what to do in future.
