kinda shady story with not a lot of people having all the info about this scheme. i remember having an account at absolute poker/ ultimate bet poker too, lucky for me i had no money to be taken away from me, never made a deposit there.

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

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.

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 ...
