Video: Program about Online Poker Cheaters on 60 minutes

Tags: 60 minutes poker, cheating gamblers on the web, Graycat, Potripper.
Posted on 26 November 2008 by "T".

CBS news program 60 minutes will on the 30th of November send a program about the cheating that has been going on at Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker...

The first story is about a player called Graycat that was killing the game for months even though his play was terrible and he won with 15 standard deviations above the mean, which was approximately equivalent to winning a one in a million jackpot six consecutive times.

The other story is about the player Potripper who made the 10-high call against Marco "CrazyMarco" Johnson in a $1,000 buy-in tournament in September of 2007. The Potripper was later traced to the headquarters of Absolute Poker in Costa Rica after a player requested his hand history and instead received more information than he should have, including other players cards and ip addresses.

The Washington Post's Steve Kroft and the team behind 60 minutes have been investigating these matters for over 4 months and will now send a program about it on Sunday the 30th at 7:00pm ET on CBS.
